         E  B  A A
My maria
          E                 B         A A
don't you know, I've come a long long way
  E          B          A   A
I've been longing to see her,
              E                   B     A  A
when shes around she takes my blues away
           E  B  A A
sweet maria
         E       B        A  A
sunlight surely hurts my eyes
 E      B      A   A
I'm a lonely dreamer
       E       B      A  A
lonely highway in the skies

[Chorus] both vocals listed
  E         B        A        E
  oh   ma   ria   I  love you, girl

A     B  A     E
oh    my ma    ria

A  A     E
eeeya I  love  you
maria I  love  you

[Verse 2]
        E  B  A A
my maria
                   E     B        A  A
there were some blue and sorrowed times
 E        B         A    A
just my thoughts about you
            E  B        A  A
bring back my peace of mind
        E   B   A A
gypsy lady
         E       B          A  A
you're miracle worked for me
 E    B      A    A
you set my soul free
 E           B       A A
like a ship sailing on the sea

B        A        A    A     E      B B  A    A  A
  she's sunlight when the   stars  are  grey
B  B    B      B  A        A  A   E    B B  A   A  A
   she treats me so right lady   take  me  away

E   B   A  A

I'm capoing the first fret. Play the chords as you would an open D (not E), A (not B), and G (not A).
