“Maggie May” is a tune co-composed by singer Rod Stewart and Martin Quittenton, and performed by Rod Stewart on his album Every Picture Tells a Story, delivered in 1971.

Maggie May” communicates the uncertainty and opposing feelings of a kid engaged with a relationship with a more seasoned lady and was composed of Stewart’s own insight. In the January 2007 issue of Q magazine, Stewart reviewed: “Maggie May was pretty much a genuine story, about the main lady I had intercourse with, at the 1961 Beaulieu Jazz Festival.

Lyrics

Wake up, Maggie, I think I got somethin’ 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 mornin’ 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 and make a living out of playin’ 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
Ooh, ooh, ooh
