Maggie May

This song is by Counting Crows.

This song is a cover of "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart.
Wake up, Maggie, I think I 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 lured 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 lured me away from home, just to save you from being alone
You stole my soul that's a pain I can do without
All I need was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a lover and Mother what a lover your wore me out
All you did was wreck my bed and in the morning kick me in the head
Oh, Maggie I couldn't really have tried any more

You lured me away from home, just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart I couldn't leave you if I tried, yeah

I suppose I could collect my books, 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 couldn't try anymore

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, yeah

Maggie, I wish I never seen your face, yeah
Oh I'm gonna get me on, get me on back home one of these days, yeah
