Maria

	  		Capo on 4 
 
         Am             E 
i'm an expatriate cut adrift 
 
                  Am                         E 
i caught a good glimpse of her smile and her midriff 
 
   Am                     E                Am               E 
i got me a body full of soul, and now i got me a mind full of sangria 
 
Am                   E 
 i didn't go there looking for trouble, 
 
    Am                           E 
i singled her out earlier but now i'm seeing double 
 
        Am                E        Am                        E 
and the bartender told me that both of their names were maria 
 
     C                  G                  C                    G 
the castanets in her hands, clickity-clack my own understanding 
 
C             G                                   C  --  G 
 of what it means to have some rhythm in your soul 
 
        D                             G 
with a stomp and a shuffle from her feet, 
 
             D                          G 
she made me lose a little bit of the pace in my heartbeat 
 
D                       G              D  --  D7 
 it's never been more fun to lose control 
 
 
 
 
             Am                                E 
her swirling skirt shows a little bit of thigh 
 
                Am                        E 
the glass in my hand won't stop running dry 
 
     Am                      E 
and all those flamenco guitars 
 
      Am                    E 
keep rattling all of those bones in my ear 
 
Am                 E 
 i guess its just too late 
 
         Am                  E 
she can already see that i'm from the states 
 
    Am                   E            Am                        E 
i guess we all have a tendency to get a little loud when we come over here 
 
    C                 G 
i'm sorry about the insult, 
 
     C                            G 
but please i don't need another bar bouncer catapult 
 
C                G               C         G 
 i can find my own way to the door tonight 
 
                D                            G 
yeah, and i'm finding it a little hard to walk 
 
                D           G                      D 
and this wine makes me yell every time i try to talk 
 
                G                    D  --  D7 
look what your dancer did to me tonight 
 
 
 
 
Em            C                  G                   D 
maria don't go, what are you doing after the show 
 
Am                C                G        D 
these are the words i'll never get to say 
 
Em         C                      G                        D 
maria i know, that i could be someone you'd like to know 
 
Am                C                    G                     D 
but i'm in no condition to make any first impressions today 
 
(back to intro (Am--E)) 
 
 
            Am                 E 
later that night in my hotel bed 
 
                    Am                    E 
the rhythm of the stomps and the claps still ringing in my head 
 
Am                E                  Am            E 
 i begin more than a little bit to regret some of my excess 
 
Am                 E                    Am                    E 
i'll have to find another way, the very next time i'm gonna try to make a play 
 
        Am                    E 
for a beautiful spanish dancer 
 
     Am                          E 
and hope to have any kind of success 
 
            C                            G 
was it the wine or the redness of her lips 
 
              C                    G 
that made me lose all of the feeling in my fingertips 
 
C            G                C  --  G 
 i guess i never will find out 
 
            D                            G 
was it the wind from the swish of her skirt 
 
              D                   G                        D 
that blew my mind and swept me up like a featherweight flirt 
 
          G                    D  --  D7 
i guess i never will find out 
 
 
 
 
Em            C                  G                   D 
maria don't go, what are you doing after the show 
 
Am                C                G        D 
these are the words i'll never get to say 
 
Em         C                      G                        D 
maria i know, that i could be someone you'd like to know 
 
Am                C                    G                     D 
but i'm in no condition to make any first impressions today 
 
 
 
                Am                          E 
the next morning came with a ring from the phone-a 
 
          Am              E 
i was already late for the bus to barcelona 
 
Am                 E                     Am                        E 
 i jumped outta bed and ran down the hall with my suitcase in my hand 
 
Am                            E 
 i took the stairs; it was just one flight 
 
        Am                         E 
made my way towards the door and into bright sunlight 
 
Am                 E                  Am                    E 
 how i was still able to move, i don't think i'll ever understand 
 
     C                        G 
but just as i stepped outside 
 
          C                    G 
something inside caught my eye 
 
C                        G                        C  --  G 
 it was the beautiful dancer from the night before 
 
                D                        G 
she was just sittin' in a hotel lobby chair 
 
              D                            G 
reading magazines, and playing with a strand of her hair 
 
D             G                           D -- D7 
i wanted to speak but i went out the door 
 
 
 
 
Em            C                  G                   D 
maria don't go, what are you doing after the show 
 
Am                C                G        D 
these are the words i'll never get to say 
 
Em         C                      G                        D 
maria i know, that i could be someone you'd like to know 
 
Am                C                    G                     D 
but i'm in no condition to make any first impressions today 
 
 
 
Em  C    G   D 
Hey,  Maria stay (repeat) 
 
 
(because of the limited space, i hope this posts right)
