Tell me baby did you get that letter I sent across the river to you
I’ve been falling so long, such a lonely, life time seen it through
And out side in the great wide world I’m holding on for you
You been falling like a freight train rolling down a hill across a river of
Blue

Lonely time, wait until the evening well that fly’s
Lonely time wait until the night time it cries

So tell me baby did you get that letter I sent across the river to you
Big red and bold like a colour of a rose, was the letter all drenched for
You
And out side in the great wide world I’m holding on just for you
Been falling like a freight train rolling down a hill across a river of
Blue

Lonely sign wait until the evening well that fly’s
Your lonely sigh wait until the night time well it cries
Lonely time you’ll see
Lonely time you’ll be

Lonely time you’ll be
Lonely time you’ll be
Alone

Tell me baby did you get that letter I sent across the river to you
I’ve been falling so long, such a lonely, life time seen it through
Out side in the great wide world I’ve been searching the bars for you
You been falling like a freight train rolling down a hill across a river of
Blue

Lonely time, wait until the evening that fly’s
Lonely sigh wait until the night time it cries
