From the recording Goin' Down for the Third Time

Lyrics

In this old hotel
I can hear a grown man cry
“I have nothin’ left to live for
And sweet Marie’s the reason why”
 
Somebody help me
Jesus, please throw me a line
I’m drownin’ in a sea of tears
Goin’ down for the third time
 
He said, “There’s a blue moon at my window
All night I walk the floor
Callin’ Baby please come back
Is that you knockin’ at my door?”
 
I can hear him through the wall
Callin’ out for sweet Marie
He said, “ My only two companions
Are pain and misery”
 
Have mercy
Have mercy
Have mercy
