Words and structure:

Intro

Verse
At the station, at the border an egression to the exterior law and order
Upward plantation

Verse (with intro riff)
I remember your red dress
Like a field full o' poppy
It was making me dreamy
Stunned by a love got to do what your head says
Could not let it stop me

Chorus: x2
They got one leaving today
They got one leaving today
They got one leaving today
And it's going away

Verse: (with intro riff again)
Got my feet in the stirrup
It can be kind of banal
But I dream of your red dress
Riding down these dry canals
Oh baby it's not europe

Verse with different lead:
But I'm sending you money
I'm sending you lots of money
So you can buy a ticket
You will be my martian honey all the day

Chorus:
They got one leaving today
They got one leaving today
They got one leaving today
And it's going away.

Outro

This was about the only Pixies' song not tabbed out so I thought I'd fill in the gap. Cheers.
