There's a little rosewood casket resting on a marble stand
With 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 could not for the tears that filled my eyes
When I'm dead and in my casket when I gently fall asleep
Fall asleep to wake in heaven dearest sister do not weep
[ mandolin ]
Take his letters and his locket place them gently on my heart
But this golden ring that he gave me from my finger never part
There's a little rosewood casket resting on a marble stand
With a packet of old love letters written by my true love's hand
[ ac. Guitar - mandolin ]
