Your Old Love Letters

This song is by Faron Young and appears on the album Pen And Paper (1965).

Today I burned your old love letters
Yes, I burned them slowly one by one
And before I'd light the flame
I'd read them to try and find the wrongs I done.

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one broke my heart in two
And now alone I left you weeping
For the ashes of your letters tied in blue.

As I burned your old love letters
I watched my dreams go up in smoke
I lived again those precious moments
I heard each tender word you spoke.

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one said that we were through
And our love is there among the embers
In the ashes of your letters tied in blue...
