Verse 1
G                                   C
Sun rise, this is the last day that I'll ever see
Cm                           G
Out in the courtyard they're ready for me
      D                     G
But I go to my Lord with no fear
         D                    G   G
'Cause I did what I did for Maria

Verse 2
     D                       G
As I rode into town with the sun going down
        D                             G
All the windows were barred there was no-one around
         D                          G
For they knew that I'd come with my hand on my gun
      D                        G      D                   G
And revenge in my heart for Maria, my dearest departed Maria

Chorus
        D                    G
Take an eye for an eye and a life for a life
        D                     G
And somebody must die for the death of my wife
       D                    G
Yes, I did what I did for Maria
  D                    G    G
I did what I did for Maria

Verse 3
G                               C
Laughter echoed across from the end of the street
Cm                      G
There was the man I was burning to meet
       D                       G
And my mind was so calm and so clear
     D                     G
As I took my revenge for Maria

Verse 4 
       D                           G
And he fell to the ground, raisin' dust all around
      D                       G
But I knew he was dead long before he went down
       D                            G
It was quick it, was clean, made it easy on him
         D                      G
Which is more than he did for Maria
        D                    G
When he did what he did to Maria

Chorus
        D                    G
Take an eye for an eye and a life for a life
        D                     G
And somebody must die for the death of my wife
       D                    G
Yes, I did what I did for Maria
  D                    G   D G D G  G
I did what I did for Maria

Repeat verse 1
G                                   C
Sun rise, this is the last day that I'll ever see
Cm                           G
Out in the courtyard they're ready for me
      D                     G
But I go to my Lord with no fear
         D                    G   
'Cause I did what I did for Maria

Chorus
        D                    G
Take an eye for an eye and a life for a life
        D                     G
And somebody must die for the death of my wife
       D                    G
Yes, I did what I did for Maria
  D                    G    
I did what I did for Maria

Chorus
        D                    G
Take an eye for an eye and a life for a life
        D                     G
And somebody must die for the death of my wife
       D                    G
Yes, I did what I did for Maria
  D                    G    
I did what I did for Maria
