Marion Marshall

 

Forty years made some idear

What makes a man tick inside

Bustin' tires pumpin' gas

Red knuckles made o'brass

 

 

Two hundred two dollar bills

Numbered straight downstairs

Bostonians spit and fit to wear

For time and time again

 

Twenty thousand workin' days

Before the sun came up

A steady hand knows ev'ry nail

You drove for ev'ryone

 

            Marion Marshall

            Standin' to the wind

            Callin' Marion Marshall

            Time and time again

 

A stomach full o' blood one night

They whispered he was through

But a water pitcher on the table

Poured out all the truth

 

            Marion Marshall

            Standin' to the wind

            Callin' Marion Marshall

            Time and time again

 

Morphine left the lawyer came

What makes a man tick inside

The son remains God knows the rest

In time and time again

 

(Chorus)

 

(Chorus)
