MARIA ELENA

Maria Elena
You're the answer to a prayer
Maria Elena
Can't you see how much I care?
To me your voice is like the echo of a sigh
And when you're near my heart can't speak above a sigh

Maria Elena
Say that we will never part
Maria Elena
Take me to your heart
A love like mine is great enough for two
To share this love is really all I ask of you

You can find a set at The Guitar Guy - Songs. A quick search showed that there are probably quite a few more sets available online.

Welcome, Joe. I didn't direct link to the site because I still don't get it right when I do. Figure it's easier for you to do what ya gotta do with the site info just in plain type.

Subject: Maria Elena Sheet Music Wanted
From: GUEST,Harry
Date: 17 Feb 08 - 04:21 PM

I'm trying to locate a (free) sheet music download site for "Maria Elena" by Lorenzo Barcelata. Anyone know one?

The sheet music collections holding it show a 1941 copyright date, so you won't be able to see one there.

Lyrics are available here: Maria Elena lyrics (amongst other places)

There is a transcription from a Ry Cooder version here: Maria Elena (standard notation and tab for guitar).

If you're interested, I've generated a couple of lead sheets (pdf) from midi files I've found on the net (just imported into Band in a Box - no cleaning up, but usable I think). If you'd like them join Mudcat and send me a personal message (there's a link there in the Quick Links drop down at the top of the page - you need to be a member to use it) with your email address.

Subject: Tune Req: Maria Elena (intro)
From: Artful Codger
Date: 16 Dec 08 - 01:50 PM

Somewhere on the net I found Spanish lyrics for "Maria Elena" which include a six-line introduction beginning:

Quiero cantarte mujer
mi más bonita canción

I assume these belong to Barcelata's original (1925), though none of the recordings I've heard (bilingual or English-only) include it. If someone has Barcelata's sheet music, please let me know how the introductory melody goes, via ABC, a dot scan, a MIDI link or some other means. Thanks in advance.

A little more searching, and got my hands on a sound clip and a recording. It'd still appreciate getting the melody as written in the original sheet music, as well as verification on the introductory lyrics (which vary in three spots with each citation I find.)

This is too funny. My wife and I were having dinner in a local Mexican restaurant last night in Old Town. A single guitarist/singer stopped at the next table and, for his first selection, played --- "Maria Elena." I remember the Los Indios Tabajaros, allegedly two Jivaro Indians from Brazil, who made an instrumental recording of the song in the late 1950's or early '60's. It made the charts and hung around a while.

Quiero cantarte mujer
Mi mas bonita cancion
Porque eres tu mi querer
Reina de mi corazon
No me abandones mi bien
Porque eres tu me querer

I can sing you the melody via SKYPE, but can't write a lick of music. I gave an El Tri Los Panchos record LP (the old size between a 45 and the 60s sized LPs) which had this song and so many other chassics on it.

If you are still interested, my email is marwin_smith@hotmail.com. Please put "MARIA ELENA LYRICS" as the subject line so I won't miss it.

This is just my simple version of how I play and sing this beautiful Balada, Maria Elena. Hope it helps.

C
Vengo a contarte, mujer.
G7                C
Mi mas bonita cancion.

Porque eres tu mi querer.
G7             C
Duena de mi corazon.
                Am
No me abandones, mujer.
                      G7
Porque eres tu, mi querer.

                C
Tuyo es, mi, corazón.
                G7
Oh sol, de mi querer.

Mujer de mi ilusión.
                  C
Mi amor, te con sagré.
                                     G7
Mi vida la embellece, una esperanza azul.
                                     C
Mi vida tiene un cielo, que le diste tu.

Tuyo es mi corazón.
                G7
Oh sol, de mi querer.
                               F
Tuyo es todo mi ser, mi amor mujer.

Yo todo el corazón, te lo entregué.

Eres mi fé, eres mi ser, eres mi amor.
