The Last Letter.
Album: Ramblin' Fever.
Intro: Bb Eb E F Dm Bb
Bb Bbmaj7 F7 C7 F F7
Why do you treat me as if I were only a friend?
F6 F C Fm7 F Bb
And what have I've done that has made you so distant and cold,
Bb Eb F7
Sometimes I wonder if you'll be contented again,
F Dm F7 Bbmaj7 Gm Bbm
Will you be happy when you are withered and old?
Bb Gm7 F
I cannot offer you diamonds or a mansion so fine,
F7 F G/F Bb
I cannot offer you clothes that your young body craves,
Bb Fm Eb
But if you will say that you long to forever be mine,
F Dm F Bb
Think of the heartaches the tears and the sorrow you'll save.
While I am writing this letter I think of the past,
F7 F C F Dm Bb
And of the promises that you are breaking so free,
Bb Bb/D Eb
But to this old world I'll soon say my farewell at last,
F F7 F6 Bb
I will be gone when you read this last letter from me.
