a song about Marion

St Paddy's Day - or Irish Pride day, as I prefer to think of it... down to Leadbetters for a few in honor.

For a while I've had just a line or two from a potential song about me sainted Irish grandmother in the back of my head...

This is a song about Marion
A girl I never knew
An Irish lass from Baltimore town
With a heart so sweet and true

Now Marion could play the blues
In a dark and smoky bar
Or she could sing a hymn so sweet
T'would make your soul see stars

This is song about Marion
A girl I never knew
An Irish lass from Baltimore town
With a heart so sweet and true

Now Marion's one true love
Was Bill the sailor boy
When he came back from the far-off war
They married with great joy

This is song about Marion
A girl I never knew
An Irish lass from Baltimore town
With a heart so sweet and true

Now Bill and Marion had a daughter
A little girl named Sue
She fell in love with a boy named Mark
That's how I came to sing to you

This is song about Marion
The girl I never knew
My Irish grandmother from Baltimore
With a voice so rich and true

'Cause Marion could play the blues
In a dark and smoky bar
Or she could sing a hymn so sweet
T'would make your soul see stars

She taught me how to play my songs
To sing straight from the heart
She lived and sang with all her soul
She was a girl apart

This is song about Marion
The girl I never knew
An Irish lass from Baltimore
With a heart so sweet and true
