Subject: RE: Morning Come, Maria's Gone - recordings
Score and lyrics are included in Jean Richie, "Celebration of Life: Her Songs ...Her Poems," p. 33; Jean Ritchie listed as composer, copyright 1969, 1971, Geordie Music Publishing, Inc.

Oldhippie gave the lyrics above. The chorus "Mornin' come and Maria's gone" is used preceding each verse, and ending the song.

Ritchie's notes with score- In C, moderately. "The "drone sound" is important in this song. The melody is modal."
