Sugar Marie Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I'm all gassed up
The car is waitin' outside
I got three more hours on this loser's job
And then I'll be ready to ride

I got this cowboy comin' with me
This guy's name is Jeffrey Jack
He can shoot the eyes out of a pool ball
He'll get those young girls into the sack

We'll drop down to the dance hall
Locals will be kickin' up their heels
They'll be drinkin' Tequila Sunrises
Until the morning light fills up the window sills

And then I'll be with Sugar Marie
She's the only girl I know that can make me forget about me
Come on and dance with me, Sugar Marie
She don't ask me any questions when it's time to leave

She works down at the truck stop
Where she polishes the spoons
She gets colas and burgers for the boys
On those hot summer afternoons

She's got this girlfriend named Linda
Linda's got a tattoo that says, Christ
Well, she ain't half bad to talk to
And I reckon she looks pretty nice

We'll drive down to the dance hall
Sittin' there, waitin' on me
Jesus, you know it feels pretty good
And sometimes I need some good old company

And then I'll be with Sugar Marie
She's the only girl I know that can make me forget about me
Come on, dance with me, Sugar Marie
And she don't ask me any questions, she don't flirt with the other boys
She belongs to me Sugar Marie, Sugar Marie

I never thought I needed no one
I can make a big enough mess myself
Oh, but when I finally found someone
And she made me forget myself

Dance with me Sugar Marie
She's the only girl I know that can make me forget about me
Shake that thang for me, Sugar Marie
But she don't ask me any questions when it's time to leave

Sugar Marie, Sugar Marie

Hey, girl I wish we could tear the heart
Out of this old town tonight
