Old Love Letter

	  		(G) Today I burned your old love letters.  
 
 I (D) burned them slowly one by (G) one. 
 
Before I?d light the flame I?d read them. 
 
 To (D) to try and find the wrongs I?d (G) done. (G7) 
 
 
1st Chorus: 
 
The (C) first you wrote me was the (G) sweetest. 
 
That Last one broke my heart in (D) two. 
 
And (G) all alone I?m left here weeping. 
 
For  (D) the ashes of your letters tied in (G) blue. 
 
 
(G) As I burned your old love letters. 
 
I (D) watched my dreams go up in (G) smoke. 
 
I lived again those precious memories. 
 
I (D) heard each tender word you (G) spoke. (G7) 
 
 
2nd Chorus 
 
 
The (C) first you wrote me was the (G) sweetest. 
 
The last one said that we were (D) through. 
 
Our (G) Love is there among the embers. 
 
In (D) the ashes of your letters tied in (G) blue.
