Verse:
Em      D                 Em     C   C/B  Am
When I first set eyes on you

          Em          G                   D
First you beat me up, then you kissed me too

Em          D              Em      C   C/B  Am
We'd throw stone into the sea

               Em            G            D
There were no others there, just you and me

Em            D                 Em      C   C/B   Am
I crossed the bridge and down the lane

            Em           G                     D
I knew I loved you then, you said you did the same


Chorus:

C G       C            G
Oh Maggie, what have you done?

C                  G                            D
I should've seen it coming, and to your side I'd run

C  G       C        G
Oh Maggie, come to me tonight

C     G                                 D
I will wait up for you, make sure you're alright

Em       D    Em    C   C/B   C   Em  G   D
I miss you





Verse 2
Em             D              Em     C   C/B  Am
you taught me how to sink or swim 
            Em                            
when i was scared that day 
G                  D
you just pushed me in 
Em       D            Em     C   C/B  Am
and when nobody was around 
            Em                             
you let me kiss you then 
G                  D            
there the love i found 
Em         D             Em     C   C/B  Am
i said i'd never let you go 
           Em                        
you just smiled at me 
G             D
how was i to know?


C      G    C            G
oh, maggie, what am i to do? 
C                           G         D
how i can live with only memories of you? 
C      G     C            G
oh, maggie, tell me the truth 
C           G                                 
when your ship was sinking 
 D      C
did you think it through? 
Em       D    Em    C   C/B   C   Em  G   D
i miss you 


verse 3
Em             D              Em     C   C/B  Am
you were the fountain of my youth 
            Em                            
and when i fumbled 
G                            D  
you showed me what to do 
Em                 D     Em      C   C/B  Am
and when we were both seventeen 
            Em                           
you left me standing there 
G                  D
but you were never mean 
Em         D                 Em     C   C/B  Am
and when i saw you out with him 
               Em
he looked much older 
     G               D
and you looked very thin 





Verse 4
Em         D                 Em     C   C/B  Am
i hadn't heard from you in years 
               Em  
and then your mama called 
      G                D
she couldn't speak for tears 
Em            D         Em      C   C/B  Am
she said you left me a note 
            Em  
inside my pocket burns 
 G                     D
with these words you wrote 


Chorus:
C             G     C              G
hey darling boy, don't you cry for me 
C      G         
i am forever yours 
D              C
now that i am free 
C           G                                 
we'll be together 
        D            C
throw stones into the sea 
C              Em
they'll be no others there 
 G               D
just you and me 
Em       D    Em    C   C/B   C   Em  G   D
i miss you 
Em       D    Em    C   C/B   C   Em  G   D
maggie's gone 



verse 5
Em            D             Em     C   C/B  Am
i think you came the other night 
                Em  
you stroked my brow 
      G                D
your eyes were full of light 
Em             D      Em      C   C/B  Am
may have only been a dream 
             Em   
but i would walk with you 
      G                 D
to places i never have been 
Em       D    Em    C   C/B   C   Em  G   D
maggie's gone
