​Puttin' Pain On Paper

This song is by Dottie West and appears on the album Makin' Memories (1969).

(Puttin' pain on paper crying in permanent blue)
When I began this letter I had hopes I wouldn't cry
But I always knew it would cause me more than a stamp to tell you goodbye
Puttin' pain on paper mailing all my hurt to you
Puttin' pain on paper crying in permanent blue

Now this pen lets me say the things I could never say to you
But these shaky lines would look as sad in any shade of blue
Puttin' pain on paper...

I'm glad this ink is permanent it proves I'm not all done
'Cause if tears could wash these words away you wouldn't know who they're from
Puttin' pain on paper...
Crying in permanent blue
