The Letter
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


Send me a ticket for an airplane
I ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby wrote me a letter

I don't care how much I got to spend
I gotta get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby wrote me a letter
Well he wrote me a letter said
He couldn't live without me no more
Oh listen mister can't you see I gotta get back
To my baby once more anyway

I don't care how much I got to spend
I gotta get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby wrote me a letter

Well he wrote me a letter
Said he couldn't live without me no more
Oh listen mister can't you see
I gotta get back to my baby once more anyway

I don't care how much I got to spend
I gotta get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby wrote me a letter

Send me a ticket for an airplane
I ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby wrote me a letter

I ain't got time to take a fast train 
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home 
My baby wrote me a letter 

[Bridge]
And I don't care how much I gotta spend 
I gotta get back to my baby again 
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home 
My baby wrote me a letter 

[Chorus]
Well he wrote me a letter 
Said he couldn't live without me no more 
Ohh listen Mister can you see 
I gotta get back to my baby once more anyway 

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

Sell me a ticket for that airplane 
I ain't got time to take a fast train 
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home 
My baby wrote me a letter

She can do no wrong she can move a person like no one else damn powerful woman who should be here. Great arrangements and it's as if she could see into my heart n pull out the blocks n make me humble .

Mais uma pérola para minha coleção de Eva!

Michael Orzolick

One of the first songs I ever sang by the BoxTops
Great Version Eva RIP Angel 👼

Nola Serv

Can't go wrong with a cover of this.

Ru I

Definitely better than the original or any versions out there.
I'm desperately looking for a karaoke version of this.

Ru I

@Trevor Morris hahahaaa that's sweet . Thank you

@Ru I
May your joints stay strong as you pound the footpaths, and your ears stay keen as you listen to Eva Cassidy. 👍

Ru I

@Trevor Morris I must have heard all her songs. I've heard all you mentioned. My favourite is Take me to the river. Amazing vocals. I don't know how she sang so effortlessly plus these were all live recordings.
Thanks, I think my joint are still young and strong haha

@Ru I
Have you tried her version of Wayfaring Stranger and Wade in the Water? They would probably suit you for running as well. Those two are my favourite Eva songs. Oh, and also Chain of Fools. I mentioned Haley Reinhart's version of The Letter in an earlier post Haley Reinhart .
Enjoy your running - and take care of your joints

Ru I

@Trevor Morris I have listened to this many times. Can you believe I listen to this while I run or jog ? Haha I absolutely love this song.
