Maggie May  Rod Stewart

[D]    [Em]     [G]    [D]        [D]  [D]              
[A]Wake up Maggie I t[G]hink I've got something to s[D]ay to you
It's l[A]ate September and I re[G]ally should be [D]back at school
I [G]know I keep you amused But I f[G]eel I'm being u[A]sed
Oh M[Em]aggie I couldn’t have tr[F#m]ied any [Em]more   [Asus]      [A]
You [Em]led me away from [A]home just to [Em]save you from being a[A]lone
You s[Em]tole my heart, and t[A]hat's what really h[D]urts

The[A] morning sun when it's i[G]n your face really [D]shows your age
But [A]that don't worry me [G]none, in my eyes you're [D]everything
I [G]laughed at a[D]ll your jokes, my l[G]ove you didn't need to [A]coax
Oh Ma[Em]ggie I couldn’t have t[F#m]ried any [Em]more   [Asus]       [A]
You led [Em]me away from [A]home just to s[Em]ave you from being a[A]lone
You [Em]stole my soul that's a [A]pain I can do wit[D]hout

[A]All I needed was a [G]friend to lend a gu[D]iding hand
But you tu[A]rned into a lover and m[G]other what a lover you w[D]ore me out
A[G]ll you did was wreck my [D]bed And in the m[G]orning kick me in the h[A]ead
Oh Ma[Em]ggie I couldn’t have t[F#m]ried any [Em]more  [Asus]       [A]
You [Em]led me away from [A]home 'cause you [Em]didn't want to be a[A]lone
You s[Em]tole my heart I couldn't l[A]eave you if I t[D]ried
Guitar solo 1
[Em]    [G]   [D]                              
I s[A]uppose I should c[G]ollect my books and get b[D]ack to school
Or st[A]eal my daddy's [G]cue make a living out of pl[D]aying pool
Or f[G]ind myself a rock and roll [D]band that [G]needs a helping [A]hand
Oh Ma[Em]ggie, I wish I'd [F#m]never seen your [Em]face  [Asus]       [A]
You made a [Em]first class fool out of [A]me, but I'm as b[Em]lind as a fool can [A]be
You [Em]stole my heart but I l[A]ove you any[D]way
