## Gordon Lightfoot

 1m 1m7 6maj7 1m 1m7 6 But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light
 3 * 5m *
 Just tell her, ...... they tell her
 1m 4 6 4 That you've got ten dollars and you'll be all right
 6 3 6 1 And when you get straight, you're gonna come back East some day

 1 * 4 6m
 ..... Does your mother know, you had a man in the West
 1 * 7b 4 3
 4 6m 3 4 5 *
 Anyway, that's all you think about, you'd call her if you could

 1 * 4 6m
 .... Does your mother know you walked all day in the rain
 1 * 7b 4 3
 4 6m 3 4 5 *
 Anyway, that's all you think about, you'd call her if you could

 1m 1m7 6maj7 1m 1m7 6 But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light
 3 * 5m *
 Just tell her, ...... they tell her
 1m 4 6 4 That you've got ten dollars, and your rent costs eight
 6 3 6 1 And when you get straight, you're gonna come back East some day

 1m 1m7 6maj7 1m 1m7 6 But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light
 3 * 1m6 * 7b 4 5 1
 Just tell her, ...... they tell her
