Absolutely Sweet Marie
Well, your railroad gate You know I just canâ€™t jump it Sometimes it gets so hard, you see Iâ€™m just sitting here beating on my trumpet With all these promises you left for me But where are you tonight, sweet Marie? Well, I waited for you when I was half sick Yes, I waited for you when you hated me Well, I waited for you inside of the frozen traffic When you knew I had some other place to be Now, where are you tonight, sweet Marie? Well, anybody can be just like me, obviously But then, now again, not too many can be like you, fortunately Well, six white horses that you did promise Were finâ€™lly delivered down to the penitentiary But to live outside the law, you must be honest I know you always say that you agree Alright so where are you tonight, sweet Marie? Well, I donâ€™t know how it happened, but the Riverboat captain, he knows my fate But evâ€™rybody else, even yourself Theyâ€™re just gonna have to wait Well, I got the fever down in my pockets The Persian drunkard, he follows me Yes, I can take him to your house but I canâ€™t unlock it You see, you forgot to leave me with the key Oh, where are you tonight, sweet Marie? Well now, I been in jail when all my mail showed That a man canâ€™t give his address out to bad company And now I stand here lookinâ€™ at your yellow railroad In the ruins of your balcony Wondâ€™ring where you are tonight, sweet Marie
