The Letter

This song is by Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn and appears on the album United Talent (1976).

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 you and you'd help me
And I said yeah, I remember, and she said

Well, there's this fellow that I've been going with
And I just found out that he's been slipping around 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 may find it and it might read it
And it might make him jealous and I might not lose it

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've asked me to
And I hope it makes him jealous the way you want it to
For I've told you I still love you and I wanna be with you
But you know sweetheart the saddest part
I'm not pretending for I still do...
