I recognize the writing on the plain white envelope
I've wondered where she'd wind up before she called or wrote
The answer's in a circle through the word love on a stamp
Postmarked Birmingham

I'd have bet on California ?cause her sister's in Bel Aire
Or I could see Seattle with her mom and dad up there
She never mentioned alabama so I don't understand
Postmarked Birmingham

A two page letter written on ramada stationary
Dated April twenty two
She asked me not to hate her, said she's sorry
But leavin's what she felt she had to do

So the day she left she made it two hundred miles south
Did she settle there, did she mail this note on her way out of town
What chance is there to find her when the only clue I have is
Postmarked Birmingham

A two page letter written on ramada stationary
Dated April twenty two
She asked me not to hate her, said she's sorry
But leavin's what she felt she had to do

Everyday down by the mailbox standin' on the curb I check
The upper right hand corner of every piece of mail I get
Hopin' there's that certain circle through the word love on a stamp
