Video Of The Day – ROD STEWART & JOHN PEEL… 45 Years Ago…

‘Maggie May’ by ROD STEWART

magiemay

Forty-five years ago – 22 October 1971 Scottish rocker/singer-songwriter/playboy ROD STEWART had the number one spot on the British singles with MAGGIE MAY one of his biggest hits ever. Two weeks before he was on the fabulous BBC show Top Of The Pops.
A special performance for three reasons. One: his former band mates The Faces joined
him for the occasion. Two: John Peel, the late, legendary English DJ also accompanied
– on mandolin – Rod the Mod. Three: Ronnie Wood played some football at the end of
the song. Here’s the fun…



Wake up Maggie I think I 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 lured me away from home just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart and that’s what really hurt

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 lured 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 anymore
You lured me away from home ’cause you didn’t want to 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 playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helpin’ hand
Oh Maggie I wish 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 wish I’d never seen your face
I’ll get on back home one of these days
