Lyrics
Sun rise this is the last day
That I'll ever see
Out in the court-yard
They're ready for me
But I go to my Lord without 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 noone 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
And 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 form
The end of the street
There was the man
I was burnin' to meet
And my mind was so calm and so clear
As I took my revenge for Maria

And he fell to the ground
Raisin' dust all around
But I knew he was dead
Long before he went down
It was quick it was clean
Made it easy on him
Which is more than he did for Maria
When he did what he did for Maria
