I am just a humble music lover who does not / not own the rights to this music, and thus bear no responsibility for the ads. Only the companies that do in fact own those rights have the ability to place ads. Seems a small price to pay to enjoy a perfect masterpiece of a composition such as this. regards, david (http://youtube.com/davidhertzberg)
My Maria Don't you know I have come a long, long way I've been longin' to see ya When she's around she take my blues away
Sweet Maria The sunlight surely hurts my eyes I'm a lonely dreamer Lonely highway in the skies
Mar-i-a Mar-i-a, I love you
My Maria There were some blue and some low times Just my thoughts about you bring back My peace of mind
Gypsy lady Your a miracle work for me You set my soul free Like a ship sailin' on the sea
She is the sunlight When the skies are grey She treat me so right lady Take me away
Mar-i-a Mar-i-a, I love you Mar-i-a Mar-i-a, I love you
B.W. Stevenson (5 October 1949 - 28 April 1988) was an American country pop artist, working in a genre now called progressive country. "B.W." stood for "Buckwheat." Stevenson is most famous for his song "My Maria", co-written with Daniel Moore. As recorded by Stevenson, "My Maria" became a smash hit, reaching #9 on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1973. The tune was covered much later by the country duo Brooks & Dunn, for whom it was a three-week #1 country hit in mid 1996. ------------------------------------------------------------ Discography:
