Letters Have No Arms
Writers: Ernest Tubb/Arbie Gibson


I just got your letter dearest darlin'
And darlin' oh, I miss you oh, so much
Your letter has cheered me, but I'm lonesome
Lonesome just to feel your lovin' touch

Letters have no arms, dear to hold me
Kisses on paper are so cold
These sweet things you write in your letter
I want to be with you dear, when told

Letters never bring me the touch of your hand
Or none of your sweet lovin' charms
I get so lonesome for you, darlin'
For you know letters have no arms
