Songtekst

(C)1971 Intune Ltd, London

Sunrise this is the last day that I'll ever see
Out in the court yard they're ready for me
but I go to my Lord with no fear
'cos I did what I did for Maria.

As I rode into town
with the sun going down
All the windows were barred
there was no one around.
For they knew that I'd come
with my hand on my gun
And revenge in my heart for Maria
My dearest departed Maria.

[chorus]:
Take an eye for an eye
and a life for a life
And somebody must die
for the death of my wife
Yes I did what I did for Maria
I did what I did for Maria.

As I fell to the ground
raisin' dust all around
But I knew he was dead
long before he went down.
It was quick it was clean
made it easy on him
Which is more than he did for Maria
When he did what he did for Maria

Laughter echoed across from the end of the street
There was the man I was burning to meet
And my mind was so calm and so clear
As I took my revenge for Maria.

[chorus]
