8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Away out here they got a name for wind, and rain and fire.
The rain is Tess, the fire is Joe,  And They Call The Wind Maria.
Maria blows the stars around,  And sends the clouds aflyin'.
Maria makes the mountan sound like folks were up there dyin'.
(Folks were up there dyin')
Maria!  Maria!
They Call The Wind Maria!
Listen to the Kingston Trio perform "They Call The Wind Maria" (mp3)
