Old Love Letters chords - Ralph Stanley

Ralph Stanley Lyrics


            INTRO
D G


VERSE 1
G
Today I burned your old love letters
  D                         G
I burned them gently one by one
    G
And as I'd light the flame I'd read them
    D                         G
For I could see what you have done


CHORUS
    C                          G
The first you wrote me was the sweetest
                               D
The last one broke my heart in two
    G
And as I'd light the flame I'd read it
    D                       G
For I can say I still love you

VERSE 2 And as I burned your old love letters It brought back memories from the past It told about you and your new love A love I knew could never last (CHORUS)
