Found a great song by Lyle Lovett on Youtube. The music is clear but vocals a bit muffled. The video has no title.
The chorus seems to go....' Mother Maria watch over us please, as we wander around in a dangerous world ' ... then something about undying love.
Does anyone know the name of this song or have the lyrics or know where I could find them.
Search in d/trad came up with nothing.
Here's hoping.
L.

Something in a concert review on the 'net mentions a song entitled "Mother Maria", and also says it's new. The review was from November 12, 2006.

SOUTH TEXAS GIRL
As sung by Lyle Lovett and His Large Band on "It's Not Big It's Large" (2007)

CHORUS: Saint Mother Maria, watch over us please
As we wonder around in this dangerous world.
Thank Mother Maria, there's nothing so sweet
As the undying love of a South Texas girl.

Three in the front seat they sat on each side
That green-and-white '58 Fairlane it would glide
Down farm roads past open fields seeming like no big deal.
As it was happening I never felt a thing.

But now looking back it seems like it was everything
Singing with mom just so we could hear ourselves sing,
Stealing a drink from the cold can in daddy's lap,
Protected by only a small thin brown paper sack.

And the wind blew the echoes of long-faded voices,
And they'd sing me a song that the old cowboys sang,
And I didn't know what the words meant or anything.
I was just singing because I was supposed to. CHORUS

And with the windows wide open it felt hot to us anyway,
Three bound together on a day just like any day.
They told me and taught me and showed me and bought me
Whatever I wanted from the corner UtoteM.

They say the name Corpus Christi means the body of Jesus.
Pronounce it Refugio; city folks they don't know.
It looks like Palacios but sounds like "palashes."
Just listen the next time you're watchin' Sid Lasher(?).

And the wind blew the echoes of long-faded voices,
And they would sing me a song that the old cowboys sang,
And I didn't know what the words meant or anything.
I was just singing. CHORUS

And I didn't know what the words meant or anything.
I was just singing.

And these days with car seats and open container laws,
Social correctness leaves no room for Santa Claus.
Sitting right next to me, she looks like that used-to-be
Song that they sang for me.

And with the windows wide open it feels hot to us anyway,
Two bound together on a day just like any day.
The wind blows the echoes of long-faded voices,
And they sing us a song that the old cowboys sang,
And now that I know what the words mean and everything,
I am still singing.

CHORUS 4X
