Sweet Marie Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Found a note of words this very morning
Written on the best paper you could find
You left it on your favorite table
Kind of expected your goodbye

It said like something about separation
It said like something for our own good
It said like fly in our own direction
And spread our souls across the world

Sweet Marie I'm alive
Sweet Marie I'm alive
Sweet Marie I'm alive

Last night I went a walking down by the lakeside
It was a hot balmy night and three ducks flew by
I came to a tree I said, Hi can I sit here
And listen to the crickets lullaby?

And I will make you a basket
From the rushes by the lake
Keep your memories and thoughts in it
Take as long as it might take - It might take long

Oh, I hope you find your good fortune
I hope you find peace in everything you do
I hope the colors of the rainbow
They Color your clothing
And I hope you'll find love, true love, I do

And I hope you get there safely girl
'Cos I know you find the way

Sweet Marie I'm alive
Sweet Marie I'm alive
Sweet Marie I'm alive
