written by John Hiatt

Marlene, Marlene
When you call my name
Marlene, Marlene
Like the summer rain
Like the honey dew
Drippin' all in my brain
Marlene, Marlene
I'm in love with you

You know I've never been satisfied
You make the blues just run and hide
I don't know how many times I tried
To have a good girl by my side
Well I can mumble and I can squawk
You got me talkin' that baby talk
I try to run but I can't even walk
Marlene, Marlene

Marlene, Marlene
If it was up to me
You know you'd ride my train back to Tennessee
Gold watch and chain, pawn ticket is due
Marlene, Marlene
I give it all to you


repeat first verse
