6. Death Letter



I got a letter this morning
how do you reckon it read?
hurry the gal you love is dead

I got a letter this morning
I'm wondering 
how you reckon it read
he said, hurry, hurry
on account that gal you love is dead

I grabbed up my suitcase, I took off down the road
When I got there she was, laying on the cooling board 
Packed up my suitcase and I took off down the road 
When I got there she was laying on the cooling board 

It looked like ten thousand people standing around the burying ground 
I didn't know I loved her, 'til they began to let her down 
looked like ten thousand, people standing around the burying ground 
I didn't know I loved her, 'til they began to let her down 

You know it's so hard to love someone that don't love you 
Don't look like satisfaction, don't care what you do 
so hard to love someone that don't love you 
Don't look like satisfaction, and  don't care what you do 

Well I got up this morning the break of day 
Just hugging the pillow, she used to lay 
Got up this morning would you believe the break of day 
Just hugging the pillow, where my baby used to lay
