Version 2 - I thought without the chorus, the verses needed more content...

Marjorie's Place two thousand and three
All day breakfast and the coffee was free
Aromas of donuts and bacon waft through,
Murmuring voices from counter and booth.
When the dust rolled on in from further out west
Marjorie's Place was a welcome rest...

Marjorie cooked and looked after her guests,
Her cousin Dan poured out coffee and swept.
The Mayor and the Sheriff, blue collar and white,
Come for a meal or just a quick bite,
Open all day and half of the night
Marjorie's Place lit by pink neon light.

Marjorie died in December oh four
Dan couldn't cope and he bolted the door.
Dust settled quickly, with no-one to sweep,
Folks just passing could not help but weep.
Ev'ry one came when they laid her to rest
Marjorie's Place had always been blessed

I came home got the keys in two thousand ten
At the counter her spirit stood notepad and pen,
I mopped and I swept, polished timber and brass
Till the sparkle was back in the mirrors and glass.
Opened the door and the crowd bustled in,
“Marjorie's Place, is open again!”

“Marjorie's Place, is open again!”

Version 1

When the dust rolled in from further out west
Marjorie's Place was a welcome rest.

Marjorie cooked and looked after her guests,
Her cousin Dan poured out coffee and swept.
Open all day and half of the night
Marjorie's Place was a welcome sight.

Marjorie died in December oh four
Dan couldn't cope and he bolted the door
Ev'ry one came when they laid her to rest
Marjorie's Place had always been blessed.

(Musical interlude.)

I came got the keys in two thousand ten
At the counter her spirit stood notepad and pen,
She smiled at me when I walked on in, said
“Marjorie's Place, is open again!”

Marjorie's Place, is open again... (repeat to fade)
