[E]Today I burned your old love letters
I [B7]burned them gently one by [E]one
[E]And as I  light the flame I read it
So [B7]I could see what you had d[E]one[E7]
The [A]first you wrote me was the  [E]sweetest
[E]The last one broke my heart in [B7]two
Our [E]love now lies among the embers
In the [B7]ashes  of your letter  I am [E]blue
SOLO
[E]As I burned your old love letters
It [B7]brough back memories from the[E] past
[E]It told about you and your new love
A [B7]love I knew could never [E]last[E7]
The [A]first you wrote me was the  [E]sweetest
[E]The last one broke my heart in [B7]two
[E]As I light the flame I read it
For [B7]I can say I still love [E]you
