Sunrise, this is the last thing that I'll ever see
Out in the courtyard they're ready for me
But I go to the Lord with no fear
'Cos I did what I did for Maria

As I rode into town with the sun coming 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

Take an eye for an eye
And a life for a life
For somebody must die for the death of my wife
Yes I did what I did for Maria
I did what I 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
And I took my revenge for Maria

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

Take an eye for an eye
And a life for a life
For somebody must die for the death of my wife
Yes I did what I did for Maria
I did what I did for Maria

Sunrise, this is the last thing that I'll ever see
Out in the courtyard they're ready for me
But I go to the Lord with no fear
'Cos I did what I did for Maria

Maria, Maria
I did what I did for Maria
Maria, Maria
I did what I did for Maria

Take an eye for an eye
And a life for a life
For somebody must die for the death of my wife
Yes I did what I did for Maria
I did what I did for Maria

Maria, Maria
I did what I did for Maria
Maria, Maria
I did what I did for Maria
