Sweet Marie

marie, it's hard to see you give yourself away like that
even though i'm one of those who chooses to take
no, it ain't right, but what's done is done

there'll be no riots in the streets
no one to scream your name
cause you have always been there
and will you remain, marie?

marie, the trees have stopped growin'
and the water's turnin' black
they might call it love
but they want you for somethin' you'll eventually lack

i hear the sound of steel slowin' steel
the platform comes in view
they're takin' you away
on tha tevenin' train

but there'll be no riots in the streets
no one to scream your name
cause you have always been there
and will you remain, marie?

oh, sweet marie...
