Am 
I stood in line and left my name 
      G                 Am 
took about six hours or so 
 
Well, the man just grinned like it was all a game 
G                  Am 
said they'd let me know 
Dm 
I put in my time till the Pocono line 
Am                  Dm 
shut down two years ago 
Am 
I was staying at the mission till I met Marie 
      G                   Am 
now I can't stay there no more 
 
 
 
Fella 'cross town said he's lookin' for a man 
to move some old cars around 
maybe me and Marie could find a burned-out 
van and do a little settlin' down 
Aw, but I'm just dreamin', I ain't got no ride 
and the junkyard's a pretty good ways 
that job's about a half week old besides 
it'd be gone now anyway 
 
Unemployment said I got no more checks 
and they showed me to the hall 
my brother died in Georgia some time ago 
I got no one left to call 
Summer wasn't bad below the bridge 
a little short on food that's all 
Now I gotta get Marie some kind of coat 
we're headed down into fall 
 
I used to play the mouth harp pretty good 
hustled up a little dough 
but I got drunk and I woke up rolled 
a couple of months ago 
they got my harp and they got my dollar 
them low life so and so's 
harps cost money and I ain't got it 
it's my own fault I suppose 
 
The Pocono's down but the Chesapeak's runnin' 
two freights everyday 
if it was just me I'd be headed south 
but Marie can't catch no train 
She's got some pain and she thinks it's a baby, 
says we gotta wait and see 
in my heart I know it's a little boy 
hope he don't end up like me 
 
Well, the man's still grinnin' says he lost my file 
I gotta stand in line again 
I want to kill him but I just say no 
I had enough of that line my friend 
I head back to the bridge, its getting kinda cold 
I'm feelin' too low down to lie 
I guess I'll just tell Marie the truth 
hope she don't break down and cry 
 
Marie she didn't wake up this morning 
she didn't even try 
she just rolled over and went to heaven 
my little boy safe inside 
I laid them in the sun where somebody'd find them 
caught a Chesapeak on the fly 
Marie will know I'm headed south 
so's to meet me by and by 
 
Marie will know I'm headed south 
so to meet me by and by
