 Maggie May

Here is the publishers version of this song.  The D/F# chord can be skipped and
it will still sound good  Enjoy 


[Verse 1]

 A                 G                           D
 Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you
       A                    G                  D 
 It's late September and I real____ly should be   back at school        
    G                     D          G                A
 I know I keep you amused,    but I feel I'm being used
     Em                     F#m       Em     D/F#
 Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more
      Em               A              Em                   A
 You led me away from home   just to save you from being alone
       Em                A           G       D
 You stole my heart and that's  what really hurts


[Verse 2]

      A                    G                     D
 The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age
      A                   G                       D  
 But that don't worry me none in my eyes you're everything
    G                          D           G                       A
 I laugh at all of your jokes,   my love you didn't need to coax
    Em                     F#m        Em
 Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more
      Em               A            Em                    A
 You led me away from home just to save you from being alone
      Em                        A          G    D
 You stole my soul and that's a pain I can do without


[Verse 3]

 A                   G                D
 All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
           A                     G                           D
 But you turned into a lover and mother what a lover you wore   me out
   G                         D              G                           A
 All you did was wreck my bed   and in the morning kick me in the head
    Em                      F#m       Em     D
 Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more
      Em                A              Em                 A
 You led me away from home ‘cause you didn't want to be alone

       Em                       A        G        D 
 You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried

 
[Instrumental] 

Em,  A,  D,  G,  Em,  G,  G/A,  D


[Verse 4]

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


[Instrumental]

 D         Em        G              D
 Maggie I wish I'd never seen your face
 D                  Em    G           D
 I'll get  back home one of these days

actually in the right key! phenominal! Only change is that at the end of every verse it goes to G quickly between A and D.
