"Sweet Marie" as written by and Liam Tadg/o'braonain O'maonlai....
Found a note of words this very morning
Written on the best paper you could find
You left it on your favorite table
And I expected your goodbye

It said like something about separation
It said for the two of us only good
It said like fly in our own direction
And spread our souls across the world

Sweet Marie I'm alive

Last night I went a walking down by the lakeside
It was a hot balmy night and three ducks flew by
I came to a tree I said, ?Hi can I sit here
And listen to the crickets lullaby??

And I will make you a basket
From the rushes by the lakes
Put your memories and thoughts in it
Take as long as it might take

Oh, I hope you find your good fortune
I hope you find peace in everything you do
I hope the colors of the rainbow
Color your clothing
And I know you'll find love, I do

Sweet Marie I'm alive

And I hope you get there safely girl
'cause I know you know the way

Sweet Marie I'm alive
