Ron Wood & Rod Stewart - Maggie May/Gasoline Alley



Faces were an English rock band formed in 1969 by members of Small Faces after lead singer/guitarist Steve Marriott left that group to form Humble Pie. The remaining Small Faces—Ian McLagan (keyboards), Ronnie Lane (bass guitar, vocals), and Kenney Jones (drums and percussion)—were joined by Ronnie Wood (guitar) and Rod Stewart (lead vocals), both from the Jeff Beck Group, and the new line-up was renamed Faces.




Lyrics


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 led me away from home, just to save you from being alone You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts

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

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 'n' roll band that needs a helping 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
