They Call The Wind Mariah Lyrics

Artist: The Kingston Trio

They Call the Wind Mariah
The Kingston Trio
Words and Music by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe

-From their 1959 LP "From the Hungry"
-From the musical "Paint Your Wagon"

Way out here they have a name for wind and rain and fire
The rain is Tess , the fire's Joe, and they call the wind Mariah
Mariah blows the stars around, sets the clouds a'flyin'
Mariah makes the mountain sound like folks was up there dyin'
Mariah, (Mariah), Mariah (Mariah), they call the wind Mariah

Before I knew Mariah'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 gal, I left her far behind me
And now I'm lost, so gol-durned lost not even-God-can find me
Mariah, Mariah, they call the wind Mariah

Out here they have a name for rain wind and fire only
When you're lost and all alone there ain't no name for lonely
I'm a lost and lonely man without a star to guide me
Mariah, blow my love to me, I need my gal beside me
Mar-i-ah, (Mar-i-ah), MARIAH ! (Mariah), they call the wind Mar-i-ah
Mar-i-ah, Mariah, Mariah
They call the wind Mar-i-ah.
