Jim Reeves – Read This Letter lyrics

Somebody read this letter for me
There's tears in my eyes and I can't see
I'm afraid that my darling walked through these trees
Somebody read this letter for me.

I'd like to read it but each time I try
My heart says it's bad new and I start to cry
I know at the ending there'll be a goodbye
To see through these tearsdrops, I can't though I try.

This is the letter I knew I would get
It's payment for something I'll alway regret
Be careful the papers a little bit wet
With teardrops for someone I'll never forget.

If it's signed by a lawyer I know what that means
Tomorrow he'll put an end to my dreams
You tell my darling once more you are free
Won't somebody read this letter for me?...
