D   D U   U X U

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

 

 

INTRO:  G x4

 

G                                F#7                      C  Em

Here she comes, she's all dressed up in daisies

G                             F#7                     C  Em

Half the time you'd swear that she is crazy

Am

Flowered drinks and a low-cut dress

B

That's the way I know her best

       Am

She says she's lonely, how could she be?

B

Every night she's got company

 

Chorus:

C     Em

Oh, Marie

D        C                Bm    Am

I sure hope you're happy

C     Em

Oh, Marie

                   D  C     Bm   Am

What about me,     Marie

 

G                                F#7                 C  Em

She likes the way she looks in her camaro

               G                 F#7                        C  Em

She likes lingerie but he prefers the sombrero

Am

She's so famous on the block

      B

She stumbles home around four o'clock

     Am

She claims the guys are hard to please

           B

She wears teen perfume behind her knees

 

 

Chorus

 

 

Solo: 

Am   Em    C   G   Am   Em   C   D   C   Bm   Am

 

G                       F#7                    C  Em

All day long she fills me up with dogma

               G                    F#7                     C  Em

She's all magazines and Benzedrine and vodka

          Am

There was one man she truly loved

              B

He took everything but her bear-skin rug

    Am

And now and then it's clear to me

        B

That need is love and love is need

 

Chorus

 

C      Em

Oh, Marie

D                    C       Bm    Am

What are you looking for

C       Em

Oh, Marie

D                C    Bm   Am

Always an open door

D                    C        Bm   Am   G

What are you looking for
