Intro - C

C           G       C 
Oh, do you see her?
Dm           G              C
Queen of the heavens on the move
  Am                     B7
Carried over oceans into India
 Dm      G                                      Am
Seduced by their gods and the heat and monsoons

 Dm          B7               Dm
How well, how obediently they received her
   D7                                       G      G7
But Maria, there's an elephant head in your womb

C         G            Am
Oh, they believe in her
Dm          G           C
Carved her idol into rock
Am                                B7
Over time, they married her to Shiva
          Dm         G                             Am
On their knees they begged her undrown their crops

Dm       B7         Dm
Oh Lady, Lady Dolorosa
     D7                            G    G7
Many armed, many nippled mother of God

C     G     Am
Santa Maria
Dm     G                  C
Santa Lakshmi of the ponds
Am              G          C
Forgot where she came from
Dm     G                  C
Out in Nirvana she was lost

          Am                  B7
Draped in rosaries of jasmine, broken veena
Dm      G                     Am
Adore, exalt at the foot of a cross
          Dm      C            Dm          
Where she wept in ivory and silver till
 D7                              G    G7
Her child was reborn on a lotus pond

C          G     Am
Oh, do you see her?
Dm           G                   C
Lost in her saffron-scented joy
Am      G   C   E/B
Dm         G                C
Nursing a blue-skinned baby boy
