Goodbye Marie is a Kenny Rogers song from 1979. It was written by Dennis Linde and Mel McDaniel and tells the story of someone who goes to Mexico and falls for a girl he can't stay with.
"I first heard Goodbye Marie in 2014 when I first discovered the album Wired! by the band Livewire. I was immediately drawn to it but didn't think about working it up until 2021. We dig the song so much we've played it in just about every performance since then, so it had to go on the album!"
