I got a letter this mornin', what do you reckon it read?
It said, “The gal you love is dead.”
I got a letter this mornin', what do you reckon it read?
It said, “Hurry, hurry, because the gal you love is dead.”

Well I packed up my suitcase, I took off down the road
When I got there she was laying on the cooling board
Packed up my suitcase and I took off down the road
When I got there she was laying on the cooling board
Well

It looked like ten thousand people standin' around the burying ground
I didn’t know I loved her till they began to let her down
Looked like ten thousand people standing on the burying ground
Well, didn’t know that I loved her till they began to let her down

You know it’s so hard to love someone that don’t love you
Won’t get satisfaction, don’t care what you do
So hard to love, well, someone that don’t love you
Don’t look like satisfaction, well, I don’t care what you do
Yeah

Hush
Thought I heard her call my name

Well, I got up this morning, the break of day
Just hugging the pillows, she used to lay
Got up this morning, believe the break of day
Just hugging the pillows where my baby used to lay
