THE KINGSTON TRIO They Call The Wind Mariah Lyrics
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`


SLOWLY
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

SLIGHTLY FASTER
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

EVEN FASTER
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.
