Pablo & Maria
By Zane Williams
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Am                    C
Pablo Escavado took Maria for his bride
Dm                F
Dead of winter 1885
  Am                           C
A bitter snow was falling as a dozen ragged men
   Dm                         F          
Surrounded the little chapel, trapping Pablo in

They called out “Surrender or we’ll burn the whole place down.”
Pablo whispered “Death can’t hurt me know”
“Stay here my Maria, and remember me this way”
Then he kissed her lips and they dragged him away.

    F          G
She heard him, calling to her
       F              C
“Sweet Maria, can you hear me?”
G                              Am 
Muffled echoes up and down the frozen canyon walls
   F          C
“Maria, how I love you.”
         G                                  Dm
Till the lonesome sound had nowhere else to go 
           Dm               C       Am    C  Dm  F
And it was swallowed in the January snow

Silence fell; the solemn priest said “God will avenge my child”
Maria just stared right through him, hollow eyed and wild
Stumbling into the muddy street she lifted her eyes to see,
The twisting awkward silhouette now still beneath the tree

No one dared to touch her and she left her lover there
And ran down to the river, with the wind whipping her hair
The snowflakes swirled behind her like the finest flowing train
And the north wind moaned and whispered, as if it knew her name

Chorus 2:
she swore she, still heard him calling
“Sweet Maria, can you hear me?”
Muffled echoes up and down the frozen canyon wall
“Maria, how I love you”
Till she reached the edge of the river far below 
And leapt into the January snow

If you’re ever down in Texas in the January snow
And you hear a mournful whisper in the North wind as it blows
You may feel the lonesome presence of a lady all in white
Weeping in the distance, just out of your sight

Chorus 1

Great song. Good job on the tab. Zane Williams... the best artist to come out since Chris Knight. They have different styles yes, but wow what powerful singer songwriters. Check more Zane Williams out, you will not be disappointed.
