Marie Marie
G
Playing guitar on the back porch
G           D
I sit in my car
          C        D  
While she sings so sad
      G
Marie Marie

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

[Chorus]
G        D
I said, "Hey, pretty girl
D
Don't you understand
D
I just want to be your lovin' man"

Marie Marie
The sun is down in the corn fields 
The evening is dark
And you sing 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

[Chorus]

Marie Marie
Playing guitar on the back porch
I leave in my car
While you sing so sad
Marie Marie
