***MAGGIE MAE - written by Rod Stewart - Martin Quintenton
from the "White City Single" and "Sayonanra" Bootleg CD

Maggie Mae - as perfomed by The Pogues

Intro: 2x
   G       D             C        G

D              C                            G
Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you
D                         C                G
It's late september and I really should be back at school
C                 G                 C        D
I know I keep you amused But I feel I'm being used
   Am                     Bm        Am    Bm
Oh Maggie I couldn`t have tried any more
    Am                 D            Am                  D
You lured me away from home just to save you from being alone
    Am                  D                       G
You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age
But that don't worry me none , in my eyes you're everything
I laughed at all your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax
Oh Maggie I couldn`t have tried any more
You lured me away from home just to save you from being alone
You stole my sole that's a pain I can do without

All I needed was was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a lover and Mother what a lover you wore me out
All you did was wreck my bed And in the morning kick me in the head
Oh Maggie I couldn`t have tried any more
You lured me away from home 'cause you didn't want to be alone
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

I suppose I could collect my books and get back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue make a living out of playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand
Oh Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face
You made a first class fool out of me But I'm as blind as a fool can be
    Am                   D       C       G
You stole my heart but I love you anyway

Intro part again
G        D         C               G
Maggie I wish I've never seen your face

This chord progression repeats to end of song
