Intro:
    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                      Gbm     Em     A     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                    Gbm      Em     A      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                    Gbm      Em    A      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  

Solo:
    Em  A  D  G
    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               Gbm             Em    A      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

Solo:
    Em  A  D  G
    Em  G  D

    Em  G  D

Mandolin Solo -x5-: D  Em  G  D


D         Em        G              D
Maggie, I wish I’d never seen your face

D         Em        G              D      -Mandolin-


D                Em    G             D
I’ll get on back home, one of these days

D         Em      G        D             -Mandolin-
D         Em      G        D             -Mandolin-

    This isn’t a tablature. These are chords, the name of this website should be “UkuChords” instead of “UkuTabs”. I don’t think I’ve come across even just ONE song that had tabs provided instead of just chords.

  2. Anyone got the tabs for the solo-y bits?

  3. You can also add a D in the third line between the two Gs.
    Nice easy to play chords, nice job.

  4. Oh – and there is a D missing from the second line, after the G.

  5. Great job! Enjoyed playing it. One suggestion is that the first A in the fourth line is an Asus4 instead. Otherwise lovely!
