When the mailman came to our house this mornin
I was waitin right there for him at the door
But when I opened up and read your last letter
Then I knew that I would wait for him no more

Cause you said Dear One, there's somethin that I have to tell you
Dear One, there's somethin that I have to say, yay-yay
Dear One, he's tall, dark, well you know how it is
And Dear One, he stole my heart away.

Ah please don't cry, try not to be sad
I tried and I tried not to hurt you bad
I tried so hard not to give in not to give in
But I lost my head and I lost my heart and I lost your love to him

Then she said Dear One, there's somethin that I have to tell you
Dear One, there's somethin that I have to say, yay-yay
Dear One, he's tall, dark, well you know how it is
And Dear One, he stole my heart away.

Oh oh oh Dear One, there's somethin that I have to tell you
Dear One, there's somethin that I have to say, yay-yay
Dear One, he's tall, dark, well you know how it is
And Dear One, he stole my heart away.

Cause you said Dear One, there's somethin that I have to tell you
Dear One, there's somethin that I have to say, yay-yay
Dear One, he's tall, dark, well you know how it is
And Dear One, he stole my heart away.

Oh, Dear One, he stole my heart away.
Ah, Dear One, he stole my heart away.
Oh, Dear One,

Fade he stole my heart away.

    I heard this song many years ago once or twice probably when it was first released and only remembered the words 'Dear One'. I remembered that the song was sad and I liked it but I did not hear it again till currently and learned the whole song. In my opinion it is a genuine classic with soul and blues feeling. Bad that Finnegan left us quite young. Peace, Max.
