Sam Cooke - They Call The Wind María lyrics

Way out west, they got a name
For rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire’s joe and
They call the wind Marīa

O no, Marīa blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a-flying
Marīa makes the mountain sounds
Like folks were up there dying
Marīa, They call the wind Marīa

Now before I knew Marīa's name
And heard her wail and whining
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shining
O, but then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I’m lost, I’m oh so lost
Not even God can find me

Marīa, O, Marīa, They call the wind Marīa
I hear they got a name for rain
and wind and fire only
but when you’re lost and all alone
there ain’t no words but lonely
And I’m a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Marīa, blow your love to me
I need my girl beside me
He, Marīa, O, Marīa
I’m lonely can’t you see
Marīa, O, Marīa
Please blow my love to me
Marīa, blow my love to me
