I woke up this mornin'
All cotton- mouthed from drinkin'
Wonderin' how I'd make it through the day
Wild eyed and crazy
All burned out from thinkin'
Wonderin' how the hell I's gonna say.
Goodbye Marie, oh goodbye Marie
Out the window there's a lonesome highway callin' me
It was fun Marie, but I got to run Marie
If I can not keep your love
At least I'll have your memory
Wakin' up beside you
On a Tijuana mornin'
With that ocean breeze to keep us cool
Three weeks of lovin'
Twenty-one nights of heaven
I stayed just long enough to be your fool.
Oh goodbye Marie, ...
Por favor, pour me
One more tequila
I need all the courage I can find
This time tomorrow
I'll be back in Houston
Thinkin' about the girl I left behind.
So goodbye Marie, ....
