INTRO- (acoustic guitar)

(Guy Clark)
      F                   C
Saint Mother Maria watch over us please
      G                     F         C
As we wonder around in this dangerous world
      F                    C
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
       G                 F           C
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

There is a nice little melody here, that repeats a couple of times during the song, in 
the chorus and verse. It is played by the piano, cello and other "large band" 
but I will do my best to tab it out for one guitar. Give me some time!!!!

VERSE- (piano, guitars, cello)

(Lyle Lovett)
C2^C                    F
Three in the front seat they sat on each side
     C2^C               G
That green-and-white 58 Fairlane it would glide
     C2^C                        F
Down farm roads past open fields seeming like no big deal
C2^C                 G2 ^G
As it was happening I never felt a thing

C2^C                          F
But now looking back it seems like it was everything
C2^C                     G2 ^G
Singing with mom just so we could hear ourselves sing
C2^C                      F
Stealing a drink from the cold can in daddy's lap
C2^C                G2 ^G
Protected by only a small thin brown paper sack

F                                C
And the wind blew the echoes of long-faded voices
    G                              F           C
And they'd sing me a song that the old cowboys sang
    F                      C
And I didn't know what the words meant or anything
G                  G
I was just singing because I was supposed to

CHORUS- (same as intro)
     F                  C
Sing Mother Maria watch over us please
      G2^G                   F        C
As we wonder around in this dangerous world
      F                      C
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
       G2^G              F           C
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

VERSE- (same as above)

And with the windows wide open it felt hot to us anyway
Three bound together on a day just like any day
They told me and taught me and showed me and bought me
Whatever I wanted from the corner U-tote-M

They say the name Corpus Christi means the body of Jesus
Pronounce it Refugio (Re-fur-io) city folks they don't know
It looks like Palacios (Pu-law-see-os) but sounds like Palacios (Pu-laa-shus)
Just listen the next time you're watchin' Sid Lasher

And the wind blew the echoes of long-faded voices
And they would sing me a song that the old cowboys sang
And I didn't know what the words meant or anything
I was just singing

CHORUS- (same as above)

Saint Mother Maria watch over us please
As we wonder around in this dangerous world
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

    F                      C2             C
And I didn't know what the words meant or anything
G
I was just singing

VERSE- (same as above)

And these days with car seats and open container laws
Social correctness leaves no room for Santa Claus
Sitting right next to me she looks like that used to be
Song that they sang for me

And with the windows wide open it feels hot to us anyway
Two bound together on a day just like any day
The wind blows the echoes of long-faded voices
And they sing us a song that the old cowboys sang
And now that I know what the words mean and everything
I am still singing

CHORUS- (same as above)

Saint Mother Maria watch over us please
As we wonder around in this dangerous world
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

Saint Mother Maria watch over us please
As we stumble around in this dangerous world
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
As the undying love of a South Texas girl
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

(Music ends)

(Guy Clark)
Saint Mother Maria watch over us please
As we wonder around in this dangerous world
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

(Everyone)
Saint Mother Maria watch over us please
As we wonder around in this dangerous world
Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet
As the undying love of a South Texas girl

Enjoy. Lyle and the boys are the best!!!
