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.

THERESA MARIA
(Hugh Scott, 1998)

Well, out through the narrows,
we'll sail for wide ocean,
Leavin' the harbour for forces unseen;
Anxiously waiting for the big catch to follow,
And the big thrash that churns up the sea.

Sail on Theresa Maria,
Bring home the sailors and the catch in your hold;
Trust in hands there to guide you,
Hold up your end now and cut through the sea;
I've faith in the captain and thee.

The cold North Atlantic will gladly destroy you,
She'll whip up her winds, turn her waters aboil;
She'll call on the sea witch to rip off our hatches,
And sweep us all off to the sea.

Sail on Theresa Maria,
Bring home the sailors and the catch in your hold;
Trust in hands there to guide you,
Hold up your end now and cut through the sea;
I've faith in the captain and thee.

The sea witch would cackle
as she sends ice to blind you,
She'll call on the water to sink you right down;
And out of her pocket she'll pull out her mitre,
And dance on our heads till we drown.

Sail on Theresa Maria,
Bring home the sailors and the catch in your hold;
Trust in hands there to guide you,
Hold up your end now and cut through the sea;
I've faith in the captain and thee. Dear Lord!

Sail on Theresa Maria,
Bring home the sailors and the catch in your hold;
Trust in hands there to guide you,
Hold up your end now and cut through the sea;
I've faith in the captain and thee.
