THE LETTER
The Box Tops


Give me a ticket for an aeroplane

I ain't got time to take a fast train

Lonely days are gone

I'm going home, because my baby just wrote me a letter



I don't care how much money I've got to spend

I've got to get back to my baby again

Lonely days are gone

I'm going home; my baby just wrote me a letter



(x2):

Well she wrote me a letter, said she couldn't live without me no more

Listen mister, can't you see I've got to get back to my baby once more?

Anyway, yeah, give me a ticket for an aeroplane

I ain't got time to take a fast train

Lonely days are gone

I'm going home, because my baby just wrote me a letter



My baby just wrote me a letter
