Maries The Name

Elvis Presley

A.   A very old friend   came by today
     Cos' he was telling everyone in town
     Of the love that he'd just found
     And Marie's the  name of his latest flame.

A.   He talked and talked and I heard him say
     That she had the longest blackest hair
     The prettiest green eyes anywhere
     And Marie's the  name of his latest flame.

B.   Though I smiled the tears inside were a burnin'
     I wished him luck and then he said goodbye
     And he was gone but still his words kept returning
     What else was left for me to do but cry.       

A. Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and sworing me
She'd be mine eternally
And Marie's the name of his latest flame.

B. Though I smiled . . .

A. Would you belive . . .
