OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
My baby wrote me a letter
And said she couldn't live without me no more

Allemande left your corner, come back and dosado
And the men star left and go one time
Turn your partner by the right to the corner allemande
Swing your own and promenade the land
Lonely days are going, good times are a coming
My baby done wrote me a letter


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade and go halfway round the ring
Come down the middle and square thru four
Four hands around and do the right & left thru
And turn the girl and veer left you go, ferris wheel
Square thru 3 hands in the middle and swing the corner girl
One time around and promenade the world
Lonely days are going, good times are a coming
My baby done wrote me a letter


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER (ALTERNATE)   

(Any 64 beat movement such as Grand Parade,
Grand Spin may be used as intro;

My baby wrote me a letter and said she couldn't live without me no more
Please mister can't you see I gotta get back to my baby, don't you know
Anyway, sell me a ticket for an aeroplane, I ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are going, good times are a coming, my baby done wrote me a letter

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a going home
My baby just wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend
I got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a going home
My baby just wrote me a letter

Well she wrote me a letter, said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen Mister can't you see I got to get back to my baby once more
Anyway, yeah

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a going home
My baby just wrote me a letter

I don't care how much money I gotta spend
I got to get back to my baby again
Lonely days are gone, I'm a going home
My baby just wrote me a letter

Well she wrote me a letter, said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen Mister cant you see I got to get back to my baby once more
Anyway, yeah

Give me a ticket for an aeroplane
Ain't got time to take a fast train
Lonely days are gone, I'm a going home
My baby just wrote me a letter
My Baby just wrote me a letter

Lyrics by Wayne Carson Thompson.
Recorded by The Box Tops.
