Intro

Gu C

Saint GMother Maria watch oDver us please As we Awonder around in this Gdangerous Dworld Thank GMother Maria there's Dnothing so sweet As the Aundying love of a GSouth Texas Dgirl There is a nice little melody here, that repeats a couple of times during the song, in the chorus and verse. It is played by the piano, cello and other "large band" but I will do my best to tab it out for one guitar. Give me some time!!!!

Verse

Dadd9^D G Three in the front seat they sat on each side Dadd9^D A That green-and-white 58 Fairlane it would glide Dadd9^D G Down farm roads past open fields seeming like no big deal Dadd9^D Aadd9 ^A As it was happening I never felt a thing Dadd9^D G But now looking back it seems like it was everything Dadd9^D Aadd9 ^A Singing with mom just so we could hear ourselves sing Dadd9^D G Stealing a drink from the cold can in daddy's lap Dadd9^D Aadd9 ^A Protected by only a small thin brown paper sack GAnd the wind blew the echoes of lDong-faded voices And Athey'd sing me a song that the Gold cowboys Dsang And GI didn't know what the Dwords meant or anything AI was just singing Abecause I was supposed to

Chorus

Sing GMother Maria watch Dover us please Aadd9^A G D As we wonder around in this dangerous world Thank GMother Maria there's noDthing so sweet Aadd9^A G D As the undying love of a South Texas girl

Verse

And with the windows wide open it felt hot to us anyway Three bound together on a day just like any day They told me and taught me and showed me and bought me Whatever I wanted from the corner U-tote-M They say the name Corpus Christi means the body of Jesus Pronounce it Refugio (Re-fur-io) city folks they don't know It looks like Palacios (Pu-law-see-os) but sounds like Palacios (Pu-laa-shus) Just listen the next time you're watchin' Sid Lasher And the wind blew the echoes of long-faded voices And they would sing me a song that the old cowboys sang And I didn't know what the words meant or anything I was just singing

Chorus

Saint Mother Maria watch over us please As we wonder around in this dangerous world Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet As the undying love of a South Texas girl And GI didn't know what the Dadd9words meant or Danything AI was just singing

Verse

And these days with car seats and open container laws Social correctness leaves no room for Santa Claus Sitting right next to me she looks like that used to be Song that they sang for me And with the windows wide open it feels hot to us anyway Two bound together on a day just like any day The wind blows the echoes of long-faded voices And they sing us a song that the old cowboys sang And now that I know what the words mean and everything I am still singing

Chorus

Saint Mother Maria watch over us please As we wonder around in this dangerous world Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet As the undying love of a South Texas girl Saint Mother Maria watch over us please As we stumble around in this dangerous world Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet As the undying love of a South Texas girl As the undying love of a South Texas girl SGuaintC Mother Maria watch over us please As we wonder around in this dangerous world Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet As the undying love of a South Texas girl SEaint Mother Maria watch over us please As we wonder around in this dangerous world Thank Mother Maria there's nothing so sweet As the undying love of a South Texas girl
