[D] Why do you treat me as if I were only a [A] friend What have I done that has made you so diff'-[A7] rent and [D] cold Sometimes I wonder if you'll be content-[D7] ed a-[G] gain [A] Will you be happy when you are wither-[A7] ed and [D] old? I cannot offer you diamonds and mansions so fine I cannot offer you clothes that your young body craves But if you'll say that you long to forever be mine Think of the heartaches, the tears and the sorrows you'll save. When you are lonely and tired of another man's gold When you are weary, remember this letter, my own Don't try to answer though I suffer anguish untold If you don't love me, I wish you would leave me alone. While I am writing this letter I think of the past And of the promises that you are breaking so free But to this world I will soon say my farewell, at last I will be gone when you read this last letter from me. Repeat 1st verse.
