The Last Letter
recorded by Jack Greene   [3/4 time]
written by Rex Griffin

C                                       G7
Why do you treat me as if I were only a friend
What have I done that's made you so different and cold
                                C7        F
Sometimes I wonder if you'll be contented again
G7                                             C
Or will you be happy when you are withered and old
I cannot offer you diamonds and mansions so fine
And I cannot offer you clothes that your young body craves
                                   C7         F
But if you'll say that you long to forever be mine
G7                                                           C
Just think of the heartaches the tears and the sorrow you'll save
When you are weary and tired of another man's gold
And when you get lonely remember this letter my own
                                             C7      F
But don't try to answer though I've suffered anguish untold
G7                                               C
If you don't love me then why don't you leave me alone
As I am writing this letter I think of the past
And of the promises that you are breaking so free
                                       C7          F
But to this old world I'll soon say my farewell at last
G7                                                 C
I will be gone when you read this last letter from me
