Lucinda Williams – Maria lyrics

Maria, you're still wild and restless
And I can just see ya ridin' in a rodeo
You might even make it down to Texas
Or you might head out west to New Mexico

So pack up all of your belongings
A pick-up will take you where you wanna go
You can ride out when you hear mountains calling
Out to Canada or the canyons of Colorado

New York City was always your home
But in your heart you know you were born to roam
And you're gonna leave as soon as you get the money
After you sell everything you own


Maria, is loneliness a virtue
Or does it steal you blind and leave you split apart
Maria, can you give me an answer
Are the songs we sing worth the broken heart

The highway has always been your lover
And someday you may know his name
Wherever you stay it wouldn't really matter
'Cause all those cities start to look the same

Some folks will try to take your heart away
And just when you think you've really got it made
You wake up and find madness in the morning
But damn the pain and damn those restless days
Damn the pain and damn those restless days
