Linda Ronstadt

Linda Ronstadt - Rosewood Casket

rate me

This is how I learned it from a Time-Life Album in about 1958.

There's a little rosewood casket

Lying on a marble stand

And a packet of old love letters

Written by my true love's hand

[Go and bring them to me sister

Read them o'er for me tonight

I have often tried but I could not

For the tears that filled my eyes] I did not know this verse--Thanks!

Last Sunday I saw him walkin'

With a lady by his side,

And I thought I heard him tell her

He would never be his bride.

When I'm dead and in my coffin

And my shroud's around me bound

And my narrow grave is ready

In some lonely churchyard ground.

Take his letters and his locket

Place together o'r my heart

But the golden ring he gave me

From my finger never part
