LYRICS:
play intro

D        E         Esus4  D#+
   Oh my Ma - ri - a
D            E              Esus4        D#+
   Seems you got me in your spell once more
D          E           Esus4        D#+
   Must be there's a storm on the way
    D              C#5              F#m   E
You taught me to know when you're near
D   C#5   F#m
Mmmm...

In your glance recall my shady days of youth
Stealing altar wine and microphones
Not so blindly fueling my need
As rock and roll fueled my dreams
         D          C#5          D#+
You know rock and roll fueled my dreams yeah

BRIDGE 1
              E                             E#                 F#m
Back then you saw me as this child in great need of the wildest sin
    E                  D#+
How sweet your grace I stumbled in
           E                      E#
And how completely you waved as I laughed in your face
   F#m  E  D#+
Oh my Maria
   F#m  E  D#+
Oh my Maria

play MARIA figure


Oh my Maria
how you stood for strength and sanity
Now there is someone poking holes in thee
I see now why you've called me near
  D        C#5          D#+
Maria my song can you hear

BRIDGE 2
                   D
I know you see the silence on the sidewalk and the anger in the street
        D#+
And the voices of all these children coming up to my feet
       E                              E#                          F#m
And we sing your song in vain as some preacher sees his reign come down
  E  D#+
Maria
      F#m     E  D#+
Oh my sweet Maria
       E                                    E#
In the silence on the hill you know I'll be dreamin' of you still
        F#m   E  D#+
Now the one Maria
    F#m E  D#+
Oh my Maria

play MARIA figure
Maria
