I fell in love the very first time I saw you
I said oh my god you are so fair and fine
I gave you a wedding ring,
wrote songs for us to sing
And then I asked you if you would be mine

You don't return my tenderness
I love you more, you love me less
Where you are now, I can only guess
Cuz you don't return my tenderness

Wish I was with my sweet little baby daughter
Or back home with my momma for a while
The only two women who ever loved me
The only ones who could ever make me smile

Every letter that I write you gets returned to me
And I write you a new one every day
They forward it around,
your address they never found
You probably wouldn't write back anyway
