D   Em   G   D 
D   Em   G   D       D D

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 really should be back at school
  G                             G              A  
I know I keep you amused But I feel I'm being used
    Em                      F#m     Em     Asus  A
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                  D
You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts 

   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 laughed at all your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax 
     Em                    F#m      Em     Asus   A 
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                D
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without


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

Em  G  D

   A                G                        D
I suppose I should collect my books and get back to school
     A              G                          D
Or steal my daddy's cue 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    Asus   A 
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          D
You stole my heart but I love you anyway

mellow out revolution. you are right, but you don't have to get nasty. woody guthrie was once asked if he knew music theory and his reply was"not enough to hurt my playing." would you talk nasty to him? 5* tab by the way.
