Marie, Marie
Shakin' Stevens


Marie Marie
playing guitar
on the back porch
I sit in my car


while she sings so sad
Marie Marie

Marie Marie,
It's so lonely
in these farmlands
Please come with me,
to the bright lights downtown
Marie Marie

I said:
"hey, pretty girl,
don't you understand
I just want to be your lovin' man"

Marie Marie,
the sun is down
in the cornfields,
The evening is dark,
and you sing so sad
Marie Marie

SOLO
Marie Marie,
It's so lonely
in these farmlands
Please come with me,
to the bright lights downtown
Marie Marie

Marie Marie,
I got two weeks
in back pay,
There's gas in my car,
and your folks say I must go
Marie Marie

I said:
"hey, pretty girl,
don't you understand
I just want to be your lovin' man"

Marie Marie,
playing guitar
on the back porch
I sit in my car,
while she sings so sad
Marie Marie.

Marie Marie,
I got two weeks
in back pay,
There's gas in my car,
and your folks say I must go
Marie, Marie

and you sing so sad
Marie Marie

and you sing so sad
Marie Marie
