Marie Marie
Playing guitar on the back porch
I sit in my car
While she sings so sad
Marie Marie
It's so lonely in these farmlands
Please come with me
To the bright lights downtown
Marie Marie
I said, "Hey, pretty girl Don't you understand
I just want to be your loving man"
Marie Marie
The sun is down in the corn fields
The evening is dark
And you sing so sad
Marie Marie

Marie Marie
I got two weeks in back pay
There's gas in my car
And your folks say I must go
I said, "Hey, pretty girl Don't you understand
I just want to be your loving man"
Marie Marie
Marie Marie
Playing guitar on the back porch
I leave in my car
While you sing so sad
Marie Marie

Sorry to hear about your severe concussion as a kid.
They've been touring relentlessly this past year and are still at it. Look'em up. On the east coast (again) right now I think.
{#Devil_pimp} zesty !
Just saw Phil & Dave do this at Solid Sound Festival in June!{#Dancingbanana_2}

Phil's showing his age, but his pipes still sounded great!

Alejandro Escovedo, Los Lobos, Dwight Yoakam and The Blasters, pretty good era

 
Absolutely - and I'd add True Believers, X, John Dee Graham and John Doe to that list.

Early 80's Slash Records in L.A.:

And to think I hated this band when I first heard them.
Nice to hear this song after all those years. Dave and Phil are still going strong!
Geez!  It's been almost 10 YEARS this you played this...Let's GET IT GOING AGAIN!

I'd rather hear Chuck Berry Sweet Little Sixteen......sounds a lot similar except Chuck Berry was ground breaking. Can't say the same for this tune. :skull:
Ah, but the Blasters WERE groundbreaking. Dig into it a little.
This is cool. Sounds like a cajun accent. Can't really get into at my desk here, but I can just picture myself in a dark bar with a beer and smoke having a real good time
Saw these guys on thier reunion tour in San Diego. Man they were good.

The Blasters were/are one of those bands that defines "fun"! I cried like a baby when I had to miss their House of Blues appearance with X!

I like Shakin' Stevens version better (British rockabilly).
Watching this guy sing was always something. I was always afraid he was going to burst a vein or something. Fun band, though.
