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 the 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 loving man.
Marie
Marie

The sun is down in the cornfield

The evening is dark
And you sing so sad

Marie
Marie.
Marie
Marie

It's so lonely in the farmlands
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
Marie
Marie

Playing guitar on the back porch
I leave in my car
While she sings so sad

Marie
Marie.
Marie
Marie

I got two weeks in back pay
While you sing so sad

Marie
Marie
While you sing so sad

Marie
Marie
