Maggie May (Live - Newcastle, England, 12/17/76) - Lyrics

Wake up Maggie, I think I've got something to say to you
It's late September and I really should be back at school
I know I keep you amused
But I feel I'm being used
Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more

You led me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
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 of your jokes
My love you didn't need to coax
Oh, Maggie I couldn't have tried any more

You led me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my soul and that's a pain I can do without

All I needed 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 led me away from home
'Cause you didn't wanna be alone
You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried

I suppose I could collect my books and get on 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 helpin' hand
Oh Maggie, I wished 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
You stole my heart, but I love you anyway

Maggie I wished I'd never seen your face
I'll get on back home one of these days
Woo hoo
