G You should know my little darling, G D G You left my poor heart in distress.G This letter meant goodbye forever, G D Though we'll have each other's hearts. G Our love will fade away in sadness, G D G Precious one why do we have to part? ***Chorus G She wrote the words she knew would hurt me, G D She said I never could be true. G I've tried, I'ved tried my little darling, G D G To prove my love was just for you. ***ChorusG I got a letter from my darling, G D She said she hated to go. G It broke my heart the words she wrote me, G D G She closed by saying I love you so.
