Got a letter this morning
This is the way my letter read (2x)
Come home Sunny
The gal you love is dead

Well I went to the station
But the southbound train had gone (2x)
I hung my head
And I began to moan

She wasn't dead
But she was very alone (2x)
I heard her when she whispered, "Sunny look like I'm booked to go"

I followed my baby to the burial ground (2x)
An' I watched the pall bearer
Slowly let her down

I know I would never see her smilin' face again (2x)
But I will always remember
She sure has been my friend
