Your Old Love Letters - Jim Reeves


"Your Old Love Letters"
~Jim Reeves~
Today I burned your old love letters.
Burned them gently one by one
Before I'd light the flame I'd read it
To try and find the wrong I've done

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one broke my heart in two
Our love is there among the embers
Of the ashes of your letters tied in blue

Today I burned your old love letters
I watched our love go up in smoke
I lived again those precious mem'ries
I heard each tender word you spoke

The first you wrote me was the sweetest
The last one said that we were through
Our love is there among the embers

Of the ashes of your letters tied in blue.
