OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*I gave a letter to the postman
He put it in his sack

Walk around your corner, see saw your own
Left allemande and weave
She wrote upon it
Return to sender

Swing your own and promenade
I write I'm sorry
But my letter keeps coming back


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*So then I dropped it in the mailbox
I sent it special D


*This time I'm going to take it myself
And put it right in her hand


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway round
Side two couples do the right & left thru
Square thru go four, go moving around the floor
Dosado and do an eight chain four
She wrote upon it
Return to sender

Swing your corner and promenade
I write I'm sorry
But my letter keeps coming back

Return To Sender

I gave a letter to the postman
He put it in his sack.
Bright and early next morning
He brought my letter back.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
We had a quarrel, a lover's spat
I write I'm sorry but my letter keeps coming back.

So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special "D".
Bright and early next morning
It came right back to me.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such person, no such zone.

This time I'm gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand.
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I'll understand (the writing on it)

Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.

Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender

Lyrics by Otis Blackwell and Winfield Scott.
Recorded by Elvis Presley.
