Intro: Dm /E  F6 /G  A7  

Dm             /E F        /G    Bb  
There's a cottage in the village in the country
A7                 Dm   /Eb 
I have learned to love
Dm             /E   F        
And every night the curfew rings 
/G  Bb                A7                 Dm
And people sing their prayers to heaven above

C                    F6       
In the cottage there lives a girl
      G          Bb       
Who's crying for she can see
C                  F6
Soldiers marching away to war
        G           Bb  A7   
They're fighting to be free

Chorus:
D               A7		G
Maria Elena I'm going away to war
    F                C                G    G7  
I'm going to fight I may not be back again
D             A7   	 G
Maria Elena I love you forever more
       F                       C                G
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

Chorus (2X fading on 2nd)
