Latest Flame

Lyrics: Pomus, Shuman
Music: Pomus, Shuman

Sung by Rusty Gauthier with the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the 1980s.

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 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

Though I smiled the tears inside were 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
And Marie's the name
Of his latest flame
And Marie's the name
Of his latest flame
