Letter From My Darling Bill Monroe
[G]I can't answer her letter,
[G]For she left me no address. [D]
[G]You should know my little darling,
You left[G] my poor [D]heart in distress. [G]
I g[G]ot a letter from my darling,
She said[G] she hated to go. [D]
It[G] broke my heart the words she wrote me,
She clos[G]ed by saying[D] I love you so. [G]
This letter meant goodbye forever,
Though we'll have each other's hearts.
Our love will fade away in sadness,
Precious one why do we have to part?
She wrote the words she knew would hurt me,
She said I never could be true.
I've tried, I'ved tried my little darling,
To prove my love was just for you.
