OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Way out here they got a name
For wind and rain and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire Joe
And they call the wind

Allemande left and weave the ring
Maria, Maria
Swing, promenade
They call the wind Maria

Heads square thru 4 hands you know
Corner lady now dosado her
Swing thru and here the boys run right

Square thru the middle 'n go 3 hands around
Swing your corner lady, promenade her

And sends the clouds a-flyin

They Call The Wind Maria
 
 

Away out west they have a name
For rain and wind and fire.
The rain is Tess, the fire Joe
And they call the wind Maria.

Maria blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a-flying.
Maria makes the mountains sound
Like folks were up there dying.

Maria (Maria), Maria (Maria)!
They call the wind Maria.

Before I knew Maria's name
I heard her wail and whinin'
I had a gal, and she had me
And the sun was always shinin'.

But then one day I left my gal
I left her far behind me
And now I'm lost, so gol' darn lost
Not even God can find me.

Maria (Maria), Maria (Maria)!
They call the wind Maria.

Out here they have a name for rain
And wind and fire only.
When you're lost and all alone,
There ain't no name for lonely.

And I'm a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me.
Maria blow my love to me.
I need my gal beside me.

Maria (Maria), Maria (Maria)!

They call the wind Maria.

Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe.
