Mudcrutch - Song of the Day - Oh, Maria

Recommended Posts

Oh, Maria

Hey, Maria

With your kind eyes

Laugh

Through the day time

Night comes, she cries

I am just a rider

On this rough road

Driving some smoke up

From old Mexico

Oh, Maria

Whiskey and rye

Walking up the stairs

With a man

Twice her size

If I had money

I'd buy her a rose

Dress her in gold

From her head

To her toes

Yeah

Maria sparkles

Like sunlight

On a lake

Every time

She passes by

It's all

That I can take

Maria

Oh, oh, oh

Maria

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, Maria

Stays out of the sun

Waits for the rain

To fall down

On her tongue

Hey, Maria

Give me a smile

Let me come over

And stay for awhile

Yeah

Maria sparkles

Like sunshine

On a lake

Every time

She passes by

It's all

That I can take

Maria

Oh, oh, oh

Maria

Oh, oh, oh

Maria

Oh, oh, oh

Maria

Oh, oh, oh

Yeah, Maria

Send me a smile

Let me come over

And stay for awhile

I just adore this song. It does remind me a bit of Lost Children off of the Last DJ album.

It's so pretty and I love the guitar work on this song. So simple. I love how Tom sang this song live, sorry that he dropped it at the Troubadour show I saw.

Love the subtle drum work and keyboard touch.

Nice little song.

This is a nice song. I didn't get into it so much till I saw Tom sing it live and he sings it so sweetly. I hate that he dropped it from the setlist. It's pretty.

The most interesting line to me was....."walking up the stairs with a man twice her size."

I heard this live first, but didn't get into it much. It took a few listens, but now I really love it. It sticks in my head for hours after I hear it.

Same thing here. I didn't like it too much at first, but now I really love it. It always lingers in my head for a while after I listen to it. I like Toms voice on this one.

I like it.

I sang it all the way to the store with my friends the other day, and they said, "What is that?"

I said, "Its Mudcrutch."

"Mudwhat?"

"Its a band. And you're gonna have to hear it again. Hey Maria..."
