Sweet marie you mean a lot to me
In my memory I hold you very dearly
Once in all my dreams, my plans, hopes and future schemes
There was sweet marie

But my home is where my heart is
And my heart is not at home
Whenever we are parted
I feel so all alone

With twilight falling
The moon is calling sweet marie
What the sea tells only sea shells
Are whispering sweet marie

Into the darkness goes this message sweet marie
Some lovers are sometimes parted
They must end what they have started
All that's left is the broken hearted, I must depart my sweet marie

Somewhere out in arizona
Such a long way from california
I felt so alone there
I was two thousand miles away from home there

Tonight we're going to play boston
I still don't know what the hell is going on
Oh but I wrote this song
To keep me thinking on about my sweet marie

Sweet marie you mean a lot to me
This melody it keeps haunting me
My sweet marie
In harmony, it's will me constantly, sweet marie

But my home is where my heart is
My heart it's not at home
Now that we are parted
I feel so all alone
