Verse (same riff as intro)

 

A5 D5

She smashed the radio with the board of education

A5 D5 C#5 A5 E5

Turn up the static left of the state of the nation

 

Pre-Chorus

E D5 C#5 A5 E5

Turn up the flame, step on the gas

Burning the flag at half mast

She's rebel's forgotten son

E

An export of the revolution

 

Verse 2: (lyrics)

 

She is the first voice of the last ones in the line

She'll drag the lake to keep the vendetta alive

 

Pre-Chorus 2: (lyrics)

 

Bring in the head of the government

The dog ate the document

Somebody shot the president

And no one knows where Maria went?

 

Chorus:

D A D A D A E

Mar -i -a, Mar -i -a, Mar -i -a, where did you go?
