Sugar Marie Submit Correct Lyrics

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 can get the young girls into the sack
We'll go 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
CHORUS
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 a 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 ole company
CHORUS
She don't ask any questions
And she don't flirt with the other boys
She belongs to me, Sugar Marie
I never thought I needed no one
I can make a big enough mess myself
Oh, but when I finally found someone
She made me respect myself
Dance for me, Sugar Marie
CHORUS
Hey girl, I wish we could tear the heart
Out of this old town tonight
