Marie Lyrics - Guy Clark

stood in line and left my name 

took about six hours or so 

Well, the man just grinned like it was all a game 

said they'd let me know 

I put in my time till the Pocono line 

shut down two years ago 

I was staying at the mission till I met Marie 

now I can't stay there no more 


Fella 'cross town said he's lookin' for a man 

to move some old cars around 

maybe me and Marie could find a burned-out 

van and do a little settlin' down 

Aw, but I'm just dreamin', I ain't got no ride 

and the junkyard's a pretty good ways 

that job's about a half week old besides 

it'd be gone now anyway 


Unemployment said I got no more checks 

and they showed me to the hall 

my brother died in Georgia some time ago 

I got no one left to call 

Summer wasn't bad below the bridge 

a little short on food that's all 

Now I gotta get Marie some kind of coat 

we're headed down into fall 


I used to play the mouth harp pretty good 

hustled up a little dough 

but I got drunk and I woke up rolled 

a couple of months ago 

they got my harp and they got my dollar 

them low life so and so's 

harps cost money and I ain't got it 

it's my own fault I suppose 


The Pocono's down but the Chesapeak's runnin' 

two freights everyday 

if it was just me I'd be headed south 

but Marie can't catch no train 

She's got some pain and she thinks it's a baby, 

says we gotta wait and see 

in my heart I know it's a little boy 

hope he don't end up like me 


Well, the man's still grinnin' says he lost my file 

I gotta stand in line again 

I want to kill him but I just say no 

I had enough of that line my friend 

I head back to the bridge, its getting kinda cold 

I'm feelin' too low down to lie 

I guess I'll just tell Marie the truth 

hope she don't break down and cry 


Marie she didn't wake up this morning 

she didn't even try 

she just rolled over and went to heaven 

my little boy safe inside 

I laid them in the sun where somebody'd find them 

caught a Chesapeak on the fly 

Marie will know I'm headed south 

so's to meet me by and by 


Marie will know I'm headed south 

so to meet me by and by
