Letter to Me (Van Buren)

I wrote myself a letter
Put it in the mail
Told me all the reasons
Why I oughta stay here

It told me 'bout a lady
With long blonde golden hair
Told me how I loved her
And that I oughta stay here

I set out on that highway
Down to the bright blue sea
Signed on board a clipper ship
That took me away from thee

That clipper ship it took me
To all the seven seas
I thought no more about you
Till that letter got back to me

Now as I read that letter
I knew where I should be
I hope you will forgive me
'Cause I'm coming back you see

I wrote myself a letter
Put it in the mail
Told me all the reasons
Why I oughta stay here.
