A true story....
(to hear recording, scroll down)


"Maria" by Elizabeth Grimes, Copyright 2009

Vs 1:
"Mi esposa bonita, te amo," he told her.
And she cried with joy for she believed it was true.
To prove his love for her, he endured the pain.
On his right arm he showed her the fresh green tattoo.

Te amo, Maria.
Te amo, Maria.

One day she found his lies. And he chose another.
And she cried with grief as she watched them both leave.
Oh, but his young, new chiquita won't let him go with out his pancho
for when he takes it off she just can't bear to read,

Te amo, Maria.
Te amo, Maria.

And now he must live wearing that sweet angel's name.

Te amo, Maria.
(Now he's missing Maria.)
Te amo, Maria
(He dreams of kissing Maria.)

Te amo, Maria.
(Now he's missing Maria.)
Te amo, Maria
(He dreams of kissing Maria.)
