"Take A Letter Maria"

(As recorded by R.B. Greaves)
R.B. GREAVES

Last night as I got home, about half past ten
There was a woman I thought I know, in the arms of another man
I kept my cool, I ain't no fool
Let me tell you what happened then
I packed some clothes and I walked out
And I ain't going back again

Oh take a letter Maria
Address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home
Gotta start a new life
So take a letter Maria
Address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer
Gotta start a new life

You've been many things, but most of all
A good secretary to me
And it's times like this I feel you've
Always been close to me
Was I wrong to work nights to try to build a good life
It seems that all work and no play has just
Cost me a wife

When a man loves a woman
The way it's hard to understand
That she would find more pleasure in the arms of another man
I never really noticed how sweet you are to me
It just so happens I'm free tonight
Would you like to have dinner with me

So take a letter Maria
Address it to my wife
Say I won't be coming home
Gotta start a new life
Take a letter Maria
Address it to my wife
Send a copy to my lawyer
Gotta start a new life
