"Maggie May"

(As recorded by Rod Stewart/Mercury)

Wake up Maggie I think I got somthing 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 anymore.

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 your everything
I laughed at all of your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax
Oh Maggie I could have tried, anymore.

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, anymore.

You led 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 on back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue and 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 was blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart, but I love you anyway

Maggie, I wish I'd, never seen your face
I'll get on back home, one of these days.
