Maggie May chords
Rod Stewart *

A G D A 2x

A                  G                         D
Wake up, Maggie, I think I got some-thing to say to you:
     A                    G                D
It's late September and I really 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
Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more.
    Em                 A             Em                    A
You lured 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.

    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 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 lured me away from home, just to save you from being alone.
    Em                     A          G      D     
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without.

A                G                D
All I need was a friend to lend a guiding hand.  
        A                       G                        D
But you turned into a lover and Mother what a lover your 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
Oh, Maggie I couldn't have tried any more.
    Em                 A             Em                    A
You lured me away from home, just to save you from being alone.
    Em                        A         G    D              
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried.

A                 G                        D
I suppose I could collect my books and get 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
Oh, Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face.
    Em                             A
You made a first class fool out of me, 
           Em                  A
but I'm as blind as a fool can be.
    Em                    A        G  D
You stole my heart, but I love you anyway.

I think the intro is a little off. Try D Em G D instead.

Correct ModlrMike, i saw someone trying to teach this song on YouTube using a capo on the 3rd fret and changing the chords. I thought it was because he couldn't sing it in standard tuning, but he didn't sing so I figure he can only play open chords and wanted to avoid the f minor barre chord.
