They call the wind Maria [From Paint Your Wagon] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Away out here they got a name
For wind and rain and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire's Joe,
And they call the wind Maria
Verse 2
Maria blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a'flyin'
Maria makes the mountains sound
Like folks were up there dying
Verse 3
Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria
Verse 4
Before I knew Maria's name
And heard her wail and whinin'
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shinin'
Verse 5
But then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I'm lost, so gone and lost
Not even God can find me
Verse 6
Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria
Verse 7
(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)
Verse 8
And I'm a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Maria blow my love to me
I need my girl beside me
Verse 9
(Maria, Maria)
They call the wind Maria
Verse 10
(Maria, Maria)
Blow my love to me
