I woke up this morning all cotton mouthed from drinking
Wonderin' how I'd made it through the day

Wild eyed and crazy all burnt out from thinkin'
Wonderin' how the hell I's gonna say

Goodbye marie - oh goodbye Marie
Out the window there's a lonesome highway callin' me
It was fun Marie - I gotta run Marie
If I cannot keep your love
At least I'll have your memory

Wakin' up beside you in the Tijuana mornin'
With that ocean breeze to keep us cool

Three weeks of lovin' - 21 nights of heaven
I stayed just long enough to be your fool

Goodbye Marie - oh goodbye Marie
Out the window there's a lonesome highway callin' me
It was fun Marie - I gotta run Marie
If I cannot keep your love
At least I'll have your memory

Por favor pour me One more tequila
I need all the courage I can find

This time tomorrow I'll be back in Houston
Thinkin' about the girl I left behind
