Sweet thing I'm writing this letter to you your name will be blotted with tears
Please read it and answer and tell me it's true your love will remain through the years
Sweet thing I love you you know that it's true don't you remember that day
As we grow older I know you'll forget that's why I'm writing this way
[ mandolin - banjo ]
I want to be loved but only by you that's why tonight I'm so sad
I know that another has gained that reward your love that I wanted so bad
Sweet thing I love you...
