'My Maria' - B.W. Stevenson
Covered by Brooks & Dunn

I have updated my post after playing it for a year.
Hope these revsions help.

1.  To play with the record, tune DOWN 1 step,
The song is actually played in Eb.
2.  You can achieve the same tuning by capoing 1 fret in standard tuning, 
and playing D,A,G in lieu of the E,B,A tuned down one step.

Verse 1  - (starts w/ riff-E-B-A progression; below)

N/C  - E  B  A A  
My Maria
      	  	      E      B         A A  
Don't you know I've come a long long way
  E          B          A   A
I've been longing to see  her
              E                   B     A  A
When shes around she takes my blues away
           E  B  A A
Sweet Maria
             E       B        A  A
The Sunlight surely hurts my eyes
 E      B      A   A        E       B      A  A
I'm a lonely dreamer,  On a highway in the skies
      

chorus: both vocals listed 

  E         B        A        E
Marieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  Oh   Ma   ria   I  love you love you

A     B  A     E
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeya
Oh    my Ma    ria

A  A     E
eeeya I  love  you
Maria I  love  you


Verse two 

        E  B  A A
My Maria
                   E     B        A  A
There were some blue and sorrowed times
 E        B         A    A
Just my thoughts about you
            E  B        A  A
bring back my peace of mind
        E   B   A A
Gypsy lady
         E       B     A  A
You're miracle work for me
 E    B      A    A
You set my soul free
 E           B       A A
Like a ship sailing on the sea

Bridge 

B               A        A       E      B    A    A  A
  She is the sunlight when the   skies  are  grey
B  B    B      B  A        A  A   E    B B  A   A  A
   She treats me so right lady   take  me  away

E   B   A  A
