Marty Robbins - I Did What I Did For Maria Lyrics




Sun bright this is the last one that I'll ever see
Out in the court yard they're waitin' for me
But I go to my death with no fear
Cause I did what I did for Maria

As I rode into town with the sun going down
All the windows were barred there was no one around
With my hand on my gun they all knew I had come
With revenge in my heart for Maria
My dearest departed Maria

Take an eye for an eye and a life for a life
And somebody must pay 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 a man I was burning to meet
And my mind was so calm and so clear
As I took my revenge for Maria

There was dust all around as he fell to the ground
But I knew he was dead long before he went down
It was quick it was clean, made it easy on him
Which was 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
And somebody must pay for the death of my wife
Yes I did what I did for Maria
I did what I did for Maria
Maria
Maria
