The Letter

Box Tops

 AmF
 Give me a ticket for an aeroplane,
 AmD
 Ain't got time to take the fastest train
 AmF
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 E7Am
My baby just wrote me a letter.

 AmF
 I don't care how much money I gotta spend,
 AmD
 Got to get back to my baby again
 AmF
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 E7Am
My baby just wrote me a letter.

Chorus
 CG
Well she wrote me a letter
 FCGG
Said she couldn't live without me no more. 
 CG
 Listen mister can't you see
 FCG
got to get back to my baby once more.
 E7
 Anyway.

 AmF
 Give me a ticket for an aeroplane,
 AmD
 Ain't got time to take the fastest train
 AmF
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 E7Am
My baby just wrote me a letter.

Chorus

 AmF
 Give me a ticket for an aeroplane,
 AmD
 Ain't got time to take the fastest train
 AmF
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 E7Am
My baby just wrote me a letter.
