Verse 4 (3:15) (steel string acoustic)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rod_stewart/maggie_may_tab.html ]
        A          G                        D
I suppose I should collect my books and get back to school
     A              G                        D
Or steal my daddy's cue make a living out of playing pool
    G                          D         G               A
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand 
     Em               F#m             Em     A
Oh Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face
                   Em              A              Em                  A
You made a first class fool out of me, but I'm as blind as a fool can be 
       Em                A           D
You stole my heart but I love you anyway
