Manic Monday with Mo - Wind

okay...this is late...and kinda lame....but how many movies, stories, television shows can you think of where the girl gets two husbands...and I don't mean the porn ones....sheesh.
(I never realized how sad these lyrics are)

Away out here they got 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’flyin’

Maria makes the mountains sound

Like folks were up there dying
Maria...Maria...They call the wind Maria

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’
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
Maria..
Maria...They call the wind Maria

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
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
Maria...Maria... Blow my love to me

Better late than never.

This certainly is a poignant spot in the film. Thanks for posting those lyrics.

This is one of my favorite songs...If you read my "story" for Monday, maybe you'll get why I used this title.
