Lyrics

I got a letter from my true love up in Baltimore
He said if I would be his love he'd never roam no more

I got a letter from down the road
I got a letter from down the road

He took me to his parlor and he got down on one knee
I swear he's the prettiest thing that this girl ever did see

I got a letter from down the road
I got a letter from down the road

I wish I had a new made house on the new cut ground
I'd take my true love by the hand and with him I'd lay down

I got a letter from down the road
I got a letter from down the road

I'm goin' up on the mountain and watch the sun rise high
I don't know if I'll ever come back I'll stay here 'til I die

I got a letter from down the road
I got a letter from down the road

I don't wanna go to heaven I don't wanna go below
Just wanna stay with my true love until the trumpet blows
