The Letter

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the album Play, Guitar Play (1977).

Today, I saw her for the first time since she left me
And she said I've got a favor to ask of you
And I said all right, what is it?
And she said you know you always told me
If I ever needed any help just to ask and you'd help me
And I said, yeah, I remember
And she said, well, there's this fellow that I've been goin' with
And I just found out that he's been slippin' around on me
And I thought that maybe if you'd write me a letter
And tell me that you miss me and that you still love me
That he might find it and he might read it and
It might make him jealous and I might not lose him
And I said, Ok I'll write you the letter

Dear sweetheart, just a line to let you know
That I still think about you and I still love you so
I remember your kisses and every time you held me tight
But most of all I remember the good times that we had each night

Dear sweetheart, if you're lonely, just let me know
For you're still my one and only and I still love you so
I'm gonna close for now sweetheart and try to go on without you
But don't forget I'll always love you, no matter what you do

So now I've written the letter the way you asked me to
And I hope it makes him jealous, the way you wanted it to
For I've told you I still love you and I want to be with you

But you know sweetheart the saddest part
I'm not pretending for I still do...
