Well, your railroad gate, you know I just can't jump it
Sometimes it gets so, so hard, you see
I'm just sitting here beating on my trumpet
With all these promises you left for me

So where are you tonight?
Where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, I waited for you when I was half sick
Well, I waited for you when you hated me
Well, I waited for you inside the frozen traffic
When you knew I had some other place to be

So, where are you tonight?
Where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, I don't know how it happened
But the river-boat captain, he knows my fate
Let's do this baby even he maybe just gonna have to wait, wait, wait

So, where are you tonight?
Where are you tonight, sweet Marie?

Well, anybody can be just like me, obviously
Then again not many of them are like you, fortunately, fortunately

Six white horses that you did promise
Were finally delivered to the penitentiary
But to live outside the law, you must be honest, darling
I know you will always say that you agree, alright

So, where are you tonight? Where are you tonight?
Where are you tonight, sweet Marie?
