My Marie*

written by Gene Clark/Patrick Gerald Robinson

 

A                C#m
Saw you down in the underground
    F#m         D         A
The knight in tarnished armour
D                    A
You looked a little harder
          C#m              E
There was softness in your smile
    A               C#m
The Magic spell you weave so well
      F#m      D     A
Still lives in me unbroken
   D             A
My love for you unspoken
     C#m               E
It's been there for awhile
  D                  F#m    D       A
I can't believe it's really you my Marie
         D            F#m       D           A
Have you finally realized where you want to be
     D        A        F#m                B7
I've know for sometime somewhere down the line
D                 E           A
You were meant to be with me  Marie.
A                      C#m
The last I heard your painted word
F#m        D      A
Lived with canvas dancers
    D                A
Who ask  you for no answers
       C#m            E
To the questions you deny
    A                   C#m
You bring the darkened walls to light
           F#m   D       A
While  the city was in slumber
D                         A
Reflecting what you remember
         C#m      E
From the ages you survived


  D                  F#m    D       A
I can't believe it's really you my Marie
         D            F#m       D           A
Have you finally realized where you want to be
     D        A        F#m                B7
I've know for sometime somewhere down the line
D                 E           A
You were meant to be with me Marie
E
Your brush it swirls thru worlds now lost ..
    F#m       B7        F#m   B7
Two worlds of greed and passion
E
To the few who do survive
         F#m    B7    F#m  B7
There is no satisfaction.

Harmonica solo

A                  C#m             D             A
The mirror  of the morning finds a poet half awakened
D               A
A song that was mistaken
      C#m                E
And a dream still in his mind
  D                  F#m    D       A
I can't believe it's really you my Marie
         D            F#m       D           A
Have you finally realized where you want to be
     D        A        F#m                B7
I've know for sometime somewhere down the line
D                 E           A
You were meant to be with me  Marie
D                 E           A
You were meant to be with me  Marie

 

Unreleased song from the 80's

 

*(Alternate 2nd verse from a live performance tape)

A                C#m
The angry sons who pound the drums
F#m         D         A
Of dogma and religion
D                    A
Know nothing of the vision
C#m              E
That true love never dies
    A               C#m
I plundered through a fortune
      F#m      D     A
Just to take a beggars wages
D             A
While I try to write the pages
C#m               E
Of the book of many lives.
