Broken Marquee

Broken Marquee

I remember well the night I wrote Broken Marquee, up late after a long gig far from home in a freezing motel  romanticizing the life of a songwriter with a bottle of jack. This song and I became best friends.

Lyrics

Broken Marquee 

Jim Dixon 

 

She Doesn’t Know My Name 

Even Though It’s Written on a Broken Sign Outside

She Comes In For a Beer,

a Corona with an Extra Lime 

Afraid To Get My Courage Up 

Afraid I Will Scare Her Away 

I Think I Think Too Much 

My Next Gig Is Three Hundred Miles Away 

 

But If I Could

I would tell her that she’s Beautiful

I Wonder If She Would 

 Walk Away?

 

The Waitress  Says She Doesn’t Talk To Much 

Except To Say She Is through With Love 

Me I Got CD for Sale, Right Upon the Stage

Wonder what is Love 

And Wonder who she’s thinking of 

The Sadness in Her Eyes Gives Her Away

 

But If I Could

I would tell her that she’s Beautiful

I Wonder If She Would 

Walk Away

 

Can You Hear Me, Can You Rescue Me, I Would Sign….

For You

 

She Doesn’t Know My Name 

Even Though It’s Written on a Broken Sign Outside 

Underneath The Words Playing Here Tonight 

She Comes In For A Beer

But Between Last Call and Disappear 

You can Find Me

Loading Out 

 

If I Could

I would tell her that she’s Beautiful

I Wonder If She Would 

Walk Away

Wish I would 

Just Tell Her She Is Beautiful.

If I Sing Real Good

Maybe she’ll stay

 

She Doesn’t Know My Name 

Even Though It’s on the Broken Marquee Sign
