I woke up this mornin' all cotton mouthed from drinkin'
Wonderin' how I'd make it through the day-ay
Wild eyed and crazy, all burned out from thinkin'
Wonderin' how the hell I's gonna say
Goodbye Marie, oh goodbye Marie-ie
G D A
Out the window there's a lonesome highway callin' me
It was fun Marie, but I got to ru-un Marie
G A G D
If I can not keep your love at least I'll have your memory, goodbye Marie
Wakin' up beside you on a Tijuana mornin'
With that ocean breeze to keep us cool
Three weeks of lovin' twenty-one nights of heaven
I stayed just long enough to be your fool
Por favor, pour me one more tequila
I need all the courage I can fi-ind
This time tomorrow I'll be back in Houston
Thinkin' about the girl I left behi-ind
