Bill Monroe — Letter From My Darling lyrics

I can't answer her letter
For she left me no address
You should know my little darling
You left my poor heart in distress
I got a letter from my darling
She said she hated to go
It broke my heart the words she wrote me
She closed by saying I love you so
She wrote the words she knew would hurt me
She said I never could be true
I've tried I've tried my little darling
To prove my love was just for you
This letter meant goodbye forever
Though we'll have each other's hearts
Our love will fade away in sadness
Precious one why did we have to part
