C B Em B C B Em Em


[Verse 1]
C B Em C G B"Oh I know that you are an artist" she said, “for you make your songs out of clay.
C B Em C G BYou carry the dust on your hands and your face, you never quite brushed it away
C Am G DYou were trying to chisel a perfect truth, when the instrument broke in your hand
Am C Bsus4 BNow you seat all alone on the greenhouse roof, with your shoes full of sand“.
Em G D C G B EmAnd the golden rays of the sun divide In the slanting mists of the rain. And Maggie, is on the road again
[Verse 2]
C B Em C G B"Oh I know that you are an sailor" she said, "Till you came too close to the shore.
C B Em C G BAnd like any shipwrecked sailor now, you live by an open door
C Am G DAnd when evening sails in the masts of the trees, your feet seem to slip on the ground
Am C Bsus4 BAnd you long for the little ship In which you can safely drown"
Em G D CAnd the silver mounds of the waves divide at the feet of the wind and the rain.
G B EmAnd Maggie, is far at the sea again
[Verse 3]
C B Em C G B"Oh I know that you are an outlaw" she said, “and you robbed both the rich and the poor.
C B Em C G BNow you seek my bed like a sanctuary, but you keep one eye on the door
C Am G DAnd you press my hand in the dead of the night, and say I can heal all your wounds
Am C Bsus4 BIn the morning your eyes just look hunted again, you'll be leaving soon"
Em G D CAnd the silver, rays of the moon divide In the slanting mists of the rain.
G B EmAnd Maggie, is on the prowl again
[Verse 4]
C B Em C G B"Oh I know that you are an artist" she said, “for you make your songs out of clay.
C B Em C G BYou carry the dust on your hands and your face, you never quite brushed it away
C Am G DAnd you work with your back to an open door, while the light is beginning to fade
Am C Bsus4 BAnd the windows are liquid the sky is alive, and the night is jade“
Em G D CAnd the silver rays of the moon divide In the slanting mists of the rain
G B Em BAnd Maggie, is on the road again.
[Outro]
Em G D CAnd the silver rays of the moon divide at the feet of the wind and the rain.
G B EmAnd Maggie, I'm at your door again
