MAGGIE MAY  Rod Stewart



[D]Wake up, Maggie, I [C]think I got some-thing to [G]say to you:
It's [D]late September and I [C]really should be [G]back at school.
I [C]know I keep you amused, [G]   but I [C]feel I'm being [D]used.
Oh, [Am]Maggie, I couldn't have [Bm]tried any mo[Am7]re.
You [Am]lured me away from home,[D]    just to save[Am] you from being alone.
[D]    You s[Am]tole my heart and [D]that's what really hurts.
[G]    The [D]morning sun, when it's [C]in your face really [G]shows your age.
But [D]that don't worry me no[C]ne; in my eyes you're [G]everything.
I lau[C]ghed at all of your j[G]okes, my l[C]ove you didn't need to coax,
[D]    Oh, [Am]Maggie I couldn't have [Bm]tried any more.
You l[Am]ured me away from home,[D]    just to [Am]save you from being alone.
[D]      Yo[Am]u stole my soul that's [D]a pain I can do without.
[G]      [D]All I need was a [C]friend to lend a [G]guiding hand.
But you [D]turned into a lover and [G]Mother what a lover your [G]wore me out.
All you [C]did was wreck my b[G]ed, and in the [C]morning kick me in the head,
[D]       Oh, [Am]Maggie I couldn't have [Bm]tried any m[Am]ore.
[Bm]       You l[Am]ured me away from home, [D]    'cause you did'nt want to be alone.
[D]       You s[Am]tole my heart I couldn't [D]leave you if I tried.
G D c G
I suppose I could collect my books and get back to school.
Or s[D]teal my daddy's cue and [C]make a living out of [G]playing pool.
Or f[C]ind myself a rock and roll ban[G]d that n[C]eeds a helping hand,
[D]     Oh, [Am]Maggie, I wish I'd [Bm]never seen your f[Am]ace.
You made a first class fool out of m[D]e,
but I'm as [Am]blind as a fool can be.[D]
You [Am]stole my heart, but I l[D]ove you [C7]anyway.
[G]Maggie, I wish [Am]I never seen your f[C]ace.
[G]        I'll get on back [Am]home one of these [C]days.

ebigham1 wrong chords altogether,kozuko got it right ,there are also some 7th chords that add a lot to the song and the intro as well as outro was missing but it's a difficult song to figure out and god bless anyone who can sing in D
