Taking Maggie Home

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

The seventh part of Robert Hunter's Amagamalin Street Suite.

I'm taking Maggie home
She don't wanna stay
Walking out of here peaceful
Don't stand in our way

You had your chance
I didn't muscle in
But the way you treat this lady
is a shame and a sin

She came to me
Now I'm coming to you
She was yours, man
but that's all through

You got blood in your eye
but you know what I mean
You start swinging
every time you let off steam

Maggie's leaving you
I'm not dragging her off
If you make a move to stop her
it's gonna turn rough

She's had enough
but she's scared of your rage
Make like a book, Chet
and just turn the page

She's too good for you
Too good for me
Too good for both of us,
that's plain to see

You think you love her
but refuse to understand
she ain't your reflection -
she's a woman

I'm taking Maggie home
She don't wanna stay
We're walking out of here peaceful
Don't stand in our way
Don't stand in our way
