MARIES THE NAME OF HIS LATEST FLAME
Elvis Presley


A very old friend came by today

'Cause he was telling everyone in town

About the love that he just found

And Marie's the name of his latest flame


He talked and talked and I heard him say

That she had the longest blackest hair

The prettiest green eyes anywhere

And Marie's the name of his latest flame


Though I smiled the tears inside were a-burning

I wished him luck and then he said goodbye

He was gone but still his words kept returning

What else was there for me to do but cry


Would you believe that yesterday

This girl was in my arms and swore to me

She'd be mine eternally

And Marie's the name of his latest flame
