The Letter Lyrics

The Letter
by The Box Tops
(also covered in a *great* version by Joe Cocker
with Leon Russell and the Shelter People)
Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,
I ain't got time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
'Cause my baby wrote me a letter.
I don't care how much money I gotta spend,
Got to get back to my baby,
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
'Cause my baby wrote me a letter.
Well, she wrote me a letter,
Said she couldn't live without me no more.
Listen, mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once more--anyway...
Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,
I ain't got time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
'Cause my baby wrote me a letter.
