Steve Earle - Marie Lyrics

(by Townes Van Zandt)

I 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 theyíd 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 canít stay there no more

Fella ícross town said heís lookiní for a man
To move some old cars around
Maybe me and marie could find a burned-out
Van and do a little settliní down
Aw, but Iím just dreaminí, I ainít got no ride
And the junkyardís a pretty good ways
That jobís about a half week old besides
Itíd 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 wasnít bad below the bridge
A little short on food thatís all
Now I gotta get marie some kind of coat
Weíre 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 soís
Harps cost money and I ainít got it
Itís my own fault I suppose

The poconoís down but the chesapeakís runniní
Two freights everyday
If it was just me Iíd be headed south
But marie canít catch no train
Sheís got some pain and she thinks itís a baby,
Says we gotta wait and see
In my heart I know itís a little boy
Hope he donít end up like me

Well, the manís still grinniní 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, itís getting kinda cold
Iím feeliní too low down to lie
I guess Iíll just tell marie the truth
Hope she donít break down and cry

Marie she didnít wake up this morning
She didnít even try
She just rolled over and went to heaven
My little boy safe inside
I laid them in the sun where somebodyíd find them
Caught a chesapeak on the fly
Marie will know Iím headed south
Soís to meet me by and by

Marie will know Iím headed south
So to meet me by and by
