The Letter
Joe Cocker Lyrics


Give me a ticket for an aeroplane

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
I ain't got time to take no fast train
Oh the lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby she wrote me a letter

I don't care how much I've got to spend
Oh I'm gonna find my way back home again
Oh my lonely days are gone I'm coming home
Yeah my baby, she wrote me a letter

She wrote me a letter
Said, "She couldn't live without no more"
Listen to me Mister ?
My baby once more, anyway

I don't care how much I've got to spend
I'm gonna find my way, way back home again
Lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby, she wrote me a letter

Well she wrote me a letter
Said, "She can't live without me no more"
Listen to me Mister ?
My baby once more, anyway

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
I ain't got time, take no fast train
Oh the lonely days are gone I'm coming home
My baby she wrote me a letter

My baby wrote me a letter
My baby wrote me a letter
My baby wrote me a letter

The Letter"

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
I ain't got time to take no fast train
Oh, the lonely days are gone
I'm coming home
My baby, she wrote me a letter

I don't care how much I've got to spend
I'm gonna find my way back home again
Oh the lonely days are gone
I'm coming home
My baby, she wrote me a letter

She wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen to me, mister, can't you see I've gotta
See my baby once more?
Anyway

I don't care how much I've got to spend
I'm gonna find my way back home again
Oh the lonely days are gone
I'm coming home
My baby, she wrote me a letter

She wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen to me, mister, can't you see I've gotta
See my baby once more?
Anyway

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
I ain't got time to take no fast train
Oh, the lonely days are gone
I'm coming home
My baby she wrote me a letter

My baby wrote me a letter
My baby wrote me a letter
My baby wrote me a letter

Possibly the best live rock song ever recorded in music history, and a measly half-million views. God help this world without hearts

John Llewlyn Davies

The live version with Leon Russell has two-and-a-half million - but, let's face it, most people are bloody ignorant apes. And tone deaf.

Tommaso

Well said bro. Not only lack of heart also ears. Those were years music went far beyond light speed and the world was just but a dream, musically talking.

Kurt Möbus

The piano riff is one of the greatest ever!

John Llewlyn Davies

@Mike DiRocco Films it IS Leon Russell

Mike DiRocco Films

I think it is Leon Russel. I've seen him play with Cocker on other videos. Not positive, but sounds the same to me

Mark Leonard

Deborah Moore
