Tear Stained Letter Lyrics

I’m gonna write a tear stained letter,
I’m gonna mail it straight to you.
I’m gonna bring back to your mind,
What you said about always being true.
Bout our secret hiding places;
Being daily satisfied.
I can see you sitting and reading it,
While you hang you head and cry.
I just hope you’re not so sad,
You’re gonna go down suicide.

…………………………*……………………….

I’m gonna write a tear stained letter:
Put it special delivery.
‘Cause it’s gonna be full of stuff,
That’s only known to you and me.
‘Bout how every time I get turned on,
You turn me off and bring me down.
It’ll be about the darkest news,
That ever did arrive in your hometown.
It’ll be about the saddest thing,
Your mailman ever did bring around.

…………………………*……………………….

I’m gonna write a tear stained letter,
I’m gonna tell you one more time.
That you still could reconsider,
And come back to being mine.
An’ if you think about what I’m saying,
It’d be hard to refuse.
Just be sure you think a long time,
On the answer that you choose.
It will be a most important piece,
Of personal, private news.

…………………………*……………………….

I’m gonna write a tear stained letter,
Mark it “Personal Private News.”
An’ I hope you’ll keep it to yourself,
An’ don’t go ’round crying the blues.
Giving off a bad impression,
As to what went really wrong.
When what it was was that suddenly,
The music was all gone.
And this man and this woman got cut off,
In the middle of our song.

…………………………*……………………….

I’m gonna write a tear stained letter,
I’m gonna put it to a tune.
So I’ll be sending with it,
A sweet melody for you.
And not some red-hot, upbeat zinger,
That’ll set your body on fire.
But a hunk of love included,
Meant to take you a little higher.
And to settle on your sweet, sweet mind,
At night when you retire.

I’m gonna write a tear stained letter.

Guitar Chords


I’m going to write a tear stained letter

I’m going to mail it straight to you

I’m going to bring back to your mind

What you said about always being true

About our secret hiding places

Being daily satisfied

I can see you sitting and reading it

While you hang, you head and cry

I just hope you’re not so sad

You’re going to go down suicide


I’m going to write a tear stained letter

Put it special delivery

Because it’s gonna be full of stuff

That’s only known to you and me

About how every time I get turned on

You turn me off and bring me down

It’ll be about the darkest news

That ever did arrive in your hometown

It’ll be about the saddest thing

Your mailman ever did bring around


I’m going to write a tear stained letter

I’m going to tell you one more time

That you still could reconsider

And come back to being mine

And if you think about what I’m saying

It’d be hard to refuse

Just be sure you think a long time

On the answer that you choose

It will be a most important piece

Of personal, private news

I’m going to write a tear stained letter

Mark it “Personal Private News”


And I hope you’ll keep it to yourself

And don’t go around crying the blues

Giving off a bad impression

As to what went really wrong

When what it was, was that suddenly

The music was all gone

And this man and this woman got cut off

In the middle of our song


I’m going to write a tear stained letter

I’m going to put it to a tune

So I’ll be sending with it

A sweet melody for you

And not some red-hot, upbeat zinger

That’ll set your body on fire

But a hunk of love included

Meant to take you a little higher

And to settle on your sweet, sweet mind

At night when you retire


I’m going to write a tear stained letter
