R.B. Greaves – Take A Letter, Maria
Capo 3

Intro: G

G C G
Last night as I got home about a half past ten
C
There was the woman I thought I knew
G
In the arms of another man

G C
I kept my cool, I ain't no fool
G
Let me tell you what happened then
C
I packed some clothes and I walked out
G
And I ain't going back again

G F
So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
C G
Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life
F
Take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
C G
Send a copy to my lawyer, I gotta start a new life

G C G
You've been many things but most of all a good secretary to me
C G
And it's times like this I feel you've always been close to me
C G
Was I wrong to work nights to try to build a good life
C G
All work and no play has just cost me a wife

G F
So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
C G
Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life
F
Take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
C G
Send a copy to my lawyer, I gotta start a new life

G C G
When a man loves a woman it's hard to understand
C G
That she would find more pleasure in the arms of another man
C G
I never really noticed how sweet you are to me
C
It just so happens I'm free tonight,
G
Would you like to have dinner with me?

G F
So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
C G
Say I won't be coming home, gonna start a new life

Take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife
C G
Send a copy to my lawyer, I gotta start a new life

Well, take a letter Maria, address it to my wife...
