 SONG: MAGGIE MAY
 
 [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]I suppose I could colle[C]ct my books and get [G]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.
