Maria Elena (Hazzard)

There's a cottage in the village in the country
I have learned to love
And every night the curfew rings
And people sing their prayers to heaven above

In the cottage there lives a girl
Who's crying for she can see
Soldiers marching away to war
They're fighting to be free

Maria Elena I'm going away to war
I'm going to fight I may not be back again
Maria Elena I love you forever more
Please say it's alright you'll stay by my side 'till dawn

I remember moonlit nights
And dancing in the streets 'till break of day
Yes I remember how it was
No one would separate us come what may

Like a dream it dissolves away
And morning will soon be here
Revolution has come our way
I'm warning you now dear

(2x fading on 2nd)
Maria Elena I'm going away to war
I'm going to fight I may not be back again
Maria Elena I love you forever more
Please say it's alright you'll stay by my side 'till dawn
