Maggie May" (or "Maggie Mae") (Roud 1757) is a traditional Liverpool folk song about a prostitute who robbed a "homeward bounder": a sailor coming home from a round trip. John Manifold, in his Penguin Australian Song Book, described it as "A foc'sle song of Liverpool origin apparently, but immensely popular among seamen all over the world". It became widely circulated in a skiffle version from the late 1950s.

The name "Maggie May" does not occur in the song; Rod borrowed the title from "Maggie Mae," a Liverpool folk song about a Lime Street prostitute which the Beatles included on their Let It Be album. Stewart liked the play on words the title created, sometimes introducing the song by saying, "This is 'Maggie May' - sometimes she did, sometimes she didn't. In his memoir Rod: The Autobiography, Stewart provided details of the experience that led to this song. Wrote Stewart: "At 16, I went to the Beaulieu Jazz Festival in the New Forest.
Maggie May is a 1964 musical conceived by Lionel Bart, who was familiar with the legendary tale and folk song about the title character; The story of an ex-sailor, a prostitute and a wildcat strike. Bart, as usual, has brilliantly written both music and lyrics. As with his former shows, Fings Aint Wot They Used T'be, Lock Up Your Daughters, Oliver! and Blitz!, we are charmed by the strong British characters.
