The Letter
by The Box Tops

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just a wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend
Got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just-a 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-a more
Anyway, yeah

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just-a 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-a more
Anyway, yeah

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home
My baby, just-a wrote me a letter, my baby just-a wrote me a letter

I remember Sunday mornings I would wake up to my dad playing this along with other awesome oldies. I could always tell he was gonna be in a good mood if I woke up to his loud music :) RIP dad

My mom dad had a record player and they had this song on a 45 record .
I was like four that would of been 1974 and I'd play it over and over.
Just popped into my head for some reason

That's a great memory to always cherish. ❤

Listened to Dick Bartley solid gold Saturday night, wolfman Jack and others with my dad. I was born in '77 and this is my music. RIP to our dads. 💔

My mother cleaned the house on Saturdays. Get the fuck out and don't come home until after (whatever time she said). This stuff playing on the stereo.

I can't tell you how many times she chewed me out because someone, eventually, would walk on the fresh-mopped kitchen floor and it happened to be my turn. And I mean after it dried. Use the front door!!!

Except the front room had carpeting, and we weren't allowed to use it for that reason.

I've known this song my entire 48 years on Earth, but only tonight after getting a call from my husband after 9 days unconscious in.an ICU with Coronavirus, do I now feel literally exploding joy from this song!

@Brie Ro I'm sorry for your loss.

I lost six people due to the pandemic in one effing month. All from Baltimore County MD. Covid (4) , liver disease from drinking alcohol and suicide. That doesn’t include the unborn baby that Laura Boyd died with or the dog that was shot by a neighbor who assumed the dog has Covid. 😞
