lyrics

Hannah Maria, she came from Jicarilla, she filled me up & I listened well
I broke my promise, I did not outlive her, swear I used to know her, I used to know myself

Hannah Maria, saw seven doves in the mornin’ outrode the storm she was born in
outrode any man you ever saw
I once believed I’d see here silhouette ridin’ through the pines some sweet summer dawn,
I once believed there were no sins on this earth for which one could not atone

Maybe mesteño’s still out in the mountains, maybe he’s runnin’ where the rivers run red
maybe some sins they don’t need no redeemin & it’s us that owes a sting to death

Hannah maria, come on home to wyomin’ lay down the diamonds you’re holdin
head your pony for home & hold on
I can still hear the wind sing your name in the sagebrush, I can still hear your high lonesome song
I can still hear you call this cold, calloused country the only country to which you belong

Hannah maria, she came from Jicarilla, with a .44 & an empty past
Lilacs grow green in the garden, all good things have come & passed
