Am      Am/G      F     C
Someone called Maria's name

I swear it was my father's voice
        Am      Am/G         F           C
Saying, "If you stay, you'll all be slain
     G                   F
You must leave now, you have no choice
Am       Am/G     F            C
Take the servants and ride west
G                      F
  Keep the child close to your chest 

Am           Am/G   F              C
  When the American troops withdraw
G            F
  Let Zapata take the rest"
