Maggie May - Edwin McCain

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 a pain I could do without.

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.

Now I suppose I could collect my books, get on back to school.
Or steal my daddy's cue and make a living playing pool.
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helpin' hand.
Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried anymore

You made a first class fool out of me
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, Yea
I'll get on back home one of these days, Yea
