Sam Cooke – They Call The Wind Maria (From Paint Your Wagon) lyrics

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria

Way out here they got a name
For rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire's Joe
And they call the wind Maria

Maria blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a-flyin'
Miriam makes the mountain sound
Like folks were up there dyin'

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria

Before I knew Maria's name
And heard her wail and whinin'
I had a gal and she had me
And the sun was always shinin'

Then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I'm lost so cold and lost
Not even God can find me

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria

Out here they got a name
For rain, for wind and fire only
But when you're lost and all alone
There ain't no word but lonely

And I'm a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Miriam, blow my love to me
I need my girl beside me

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria
Maria, Maria
Love, my love, pull me
