Beautiful Maria of My Soul  Los Lobos

In the summer of our l[Em]ives,    [C]
In the magic of l[Am]ove,
Am B C B7 B7(short)
Storms a-bove scattered away,

~Stanza 2~ Am D
Lovers dreaming in the night,
Reaching for [G]paradise, [C]
But as the d[Am]ark shadows f[Em]ade,
C B7(short)
Love sleeps away.
~Same as stanza 1~
On an empty stretch of beach,
In the pattern of the waves,
Drawing pictures with my hand,
In the sand I see your face,

~Same as stanza 2~
Skipping pebbles on the sea,
Wishing for paradise,
Sand castles crumble bellow,
The restless tide ebb and flow,

~Chorus~ (Los Lobos version)
Listening to a she[Em]ll, [Am9]     [B7#9]
Hoping for your vo[Em]ice,[Am9]     [B7#9]
Em Am/c Am B7 Em
Beautiful Mari - a of my soul
[Em]    [Am]   [B7]of my [Em]soul

~Chorus~ (Mambo All-Stars version)
Listening to a she[Em]ll, [B7b13]
Hoping for your vo[Em]ice,[B7b13]
Em Am/c Am B7 Em
Beautiful Mari - a of my soul
[Em]    [Am]   [B7b13]of my [Em]soul

Flute/Trumpet Solo ~Same as stanza 1~

Bridge ~Same as intro~

~Same as stanza 1~
Do we always be apart,
Locked forever in a dream,
If I ever love again,
Even then nothing will change,

~Same as stanza 2~
And the taste of you remains,
Clinging to paradise,
But as the distance from you grows,
All that my heart ever knows,

Chorus ~same~
Em Am9/C B7 repeated to the end
