The Letter

Words & Music:

Wayne Carson Thompson


Am                    F

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane.

G                        D

Ain't got time to take a fast train.

Am                    F

Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,

          E7                     Am

'Cause my baby just-a wrote me a letter.


I don't care how much money I gotta spend,

Got to get back to my baby again.

Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,

'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter.



          C          G

Well, she wrote me a letter,

         F        C        G

Said she couldn't live without me no more.

C               G

Listen, mister, can't you see

  F          C          G                E7

I got to get back to my baby once more?  Anyway...
