THERESA MARIA
Written by David Olney
As sung by David Olney on "Border Crossing" (2003)

Who will you call for when your heart is troubled?
Who will you turn to when I'm far away?
At your darkest hour, will you remember
These moments together as night turns to day?
Theresa Maria, the highway is callin'.
A cold wind is blowin' and soon I'll be gone;
And what if your mem'ry comes back to haunt me?
Will you still want me as you want me now,
Or will the years a-passin' make memories bitter,
And cold as the winter and cruel as the snow?
Theresa Maria, your love will not keep me,
But think of me kindly when you are alone.

Bless'd be the souls who give without takin',
Who touch without breakin' the ones they hold dear.
Cursed is the fool, lovin' then leavin',
Who takes without givin' while pretendin' to care.
Theresa Maria, your love will not leave me.
I'll think of you kindly when I am alone.
It's you I will call for when my heart is troubled,
You I will dream of though you're far away.
At my darkest hour, it's you I'll remember,
These moments together as night turns to day.
Theresa Maria, the highway is callin'.
A cold wind is blowin' and soon I'll be gone.
I'll be gone.
