TAKE A LETTER MARIA (R.B. Greaves) Anthony A. Jones - 1969 Last night as I got home About a-half past ten There was a woman I thought I knew In the arms of another man I kept my cool, I ain't no fool Lemme tell you what a-happened then I packed some clothes and I walked out And I ain't goin' back again So take a letter, Maria Address it to my wife Yeah, say I won't be comin' home Gotta start a new life So take a letter, Maria Address it to my wife Send a copy to my lawyer Gotta start a new life You been many things, but most of all A good secretary to me And it's times like this I feel That you'll always be close to me Was I wrong to work nights To try to build a good life All work and no play Has just cost me a wife So take a letter, Maria Address it to my wife Say I won't be comin' home Gotta start a new life So take a letter, Maria Address it to my wife Yeah, send a copy to my lawyer Gotta start a new life When a man loves a woman It's hard to understand That she would find more pleasure In the arms of another man Maria, I never really noticed How sweet you are to me It just so happens I'm free tonight Would you like a dinner with me So take a letter, Maria Address it to my wife Say I won't be comin' home Gotta start a new life Woah, yeah, take a letter, Maria Woah, yeah, address it to my wife Yeah, send a copy to my lawyer Gotta start a new life Woah, yeah, take a letter, Maria.........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2013)
