I am looking for a recording of "Morning's Come, Maria's Gone". I am aware of Margaret Walter's CD "Power in a Song". Any other suggestions?

Morning Come, Maria Gone

    Morning come and Maria's gone
    Morning come and Maria's gone
    Morning come and Maria's gone
    And it's early in the morning

Oh, she's gone and I can't go
Oh, she's gone and I can't go
Oh, she's gone and I can't go
And it's early in the morning

Never could I know her mind
Never could I know her mind
Never could I know her mind
And it's early in the morning

Trouble, trouble is my name
Trouble, trouble is my name
Trouble, trouble is my name
And it's early in the morning

Looks like it comes from Jean Ritchie's "Singing Family of the Cumberlands". But I can't tell if its a recording or a songbook.

Jean Ritchie recorded it on "Clear Waters Remembered", issued at times on XTRA, Geordie (LPs) and Greenhays (currently, I think) Try Jean's website or maybe even PM her on the Cat (kytrad, I believe) for more info. I have it on an LP.

I suggest you have a listen to The Duncan McFarlane Band's gutsy version on their Woodshed Boys album. It's fantastic and makes all the hair on the back of my neck stand up!

I ran across a clip of that when I was googling the song. The Duncan MacFarlane Band are a hell of a group, but I have to say that a sad and reflective interpretation works better for me (at least for now).

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."

I'm with Mollycat on this one, Duncan's version works everytime, but I do like Margaret's rendition too.

Cheers CET - Duncan McF here - thanks for the 'nod'.
I appreciate the sad reflective versions myself!
My leccie band had to do their own thing with it
- so it's grand someone gives it its dues even when the louder uptempo thing isn't their particular 'bag'. Cheers!

As a matter of fact (and interest?)
- I learned the song from Marg Walters version
when I had the privilege of being her guitar player on her UK tour a few years back.
She learned it from a Peter Bellamy version if I remember right.
So it went from Keighley (Peter) near me, all the way to Oz, for me to learn it in Yorkshire off her. Grand!
...and she hated our rendition actually - bless her!
Mostly cause we broke it up with Sir John Cope for an instrumental break! Why? She said!

if you need a copy of her album (Power/Song) that has it on
PM me - I have copies of it she left with me to sell for her.

Hers is indeed a soulful versh - love it!

All the best - Duncan
PS - thanks Molly and BBPaul - good fans y' are - bless!

Jon Boden did a very nice recording of this haunting song for January 15 for his A Folk Song a Day project.

I've got a feeling that Peter Bellamy made a recording of this, commercial or possibly not.

Bellamy recorded it on his EFDSS album Second Wind in 1985 - long unavailable...
