"They Call the Wind Maria" as written by and Alan Jay/loewe Lerner....
Away out here they've got a name
For wind and rain and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire is Joe
And they call the wind Maria

Maria flows the stars around
Since the clouds are flying
Maria makes the mountains sound
Like folks were out there dying

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria

Before I knew Maria's name
Heard her wails and whining
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shining

And then one day I left my girl
Left her far behind me
Now I'm so lost, so dark, no, lost
Not even God can find me

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria

Out here they've got a name for rain
Wind and fire only
But when you're lost and all alone
There ain't no name for lonely

Now I'm a lost and lonely man
Without the stars to guide me
Maria blowed her love to me
I need her here beside me

Maria, Maria
They call the wind Maria
