when it says A for a start and make your way from there.)

Intro:
A, D/A... (A few times)


A
Mara Lisa waves her hand at the car
E                   E7             A
With a stick and a rose-colored shawl
F                                            A
Fighting of tears of a dull and a deafening pain
F#                        G
They'll repay every senseless act
A             G          F#
They ever borrowed from you
(G, A)    B                 E       E7      
     A
Oh, just wait and you will see, won't you, Mara Lisa?

Am                              G              F#
Through the curtains, sees the town and the parades
(G, A)    B                 E        E7     
       A
Oh, you know how innocence fades, don't you, Mara Lisa?


A
Marching softly through the weeds in her front yard
  E             E7            A
Up onto the porch to a sip of tea
  F                                       A
Wounded soldier with a cane and a bitter remedy
  F#                            G
You'll repay every senseless act
         A             G           F#
To the boys who were dead in the field
(G, A)    B                 E        E7     
       A
Oh you know they're were already killed, don't you, Mara Lisa?
  F#                            G
You'll repay every trick you pulled
         A             G           F#
On the boys that were lost out at sea
(G, A)    B                 E        E7     
       A
Oh they drowned in your memory, didn't they, Mara Lisa?


Am                         G                  F#
Through the curtains, sees the town and the parades
(G, A)    B                 E        E7     
       A
Oh, you know how innocence fades, don't you, Mara Lisa?

Bm                          E
Were you even capable of love?
         A          G         F#
If you were, then how do you know
Bm                          E
Innocence keeps tabs on the ones it can't see
Bm                       G      D/F#    E  E7
It wet it's lips, and it said "Mara Lisa"


A
Marching softly through the weeds in her front yard
  E                 E7         A
Up onto the porch to a sip of tea
  F                                      A
Wounded woman with a cane and a sad remedy
  F#                   G
You'll repay every senseless act
A             G          F#
They ever borrowed from you
(G, A)    B                 E       E7      
E     A
Oh, just wait and you will see, won't you, Mara Lisa?
