Scaggs, Boz - You Got My Letter Lyrics




You got my letter
But you must not read your mail
You got my letter baby
But you must not read your mail
Well I'm a happy man if I can get to you
And I'm a sad man if I fail

Should have known better
Than to leave it to the postal lines
I should have known better baby baby baby
I'm like a man running out of time
mmm hmmm
I laid my heart out in that envelope
Now I'm laying it on the line mmm hmmm

Ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo
Yes I'm laying it on the line mmm hmmm
Ooh hoo hoo hoo
And you could take a big load off of my mind

I hope you're gonna read it now
And give me some kind of sign
Don't take much to read it now
You don't have to read between the lines
And shine a little light on me
And take away this mystery
I need a reason to be here
I need a reason to be
And you're the reason to me
Don't fail me now

Hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo hoo

I laid my heart out in that envelope
Now I'm laying it on the line mmm hmmm

I know you're gonna be here
I know you're gonna be here soon
And make it so much better
By the light of the big old moon
Send me some good news
To chase away these yearning blues
You give me reason to be here
You give me reason to be
And you're the reason for me
Don't fail me now baby

Hoo hoo hoo
Woah oh hoo hoo
Hoo hoo hoo
Woah oh hoo hoo

You give me reason to be
You give me reason to be here
I need a reason to be
Oooh hoo

    William Royce is just like Steveland Morris & Gordon Sumner et al...he's never done a bad track...and he's been recording for more than 50 years!!!!!

  2. Thomas Wampler

    THIS IS an AMAZING ALBUM. Of all places, I first heard every cut on the CD I loaned out from a SC public library. I was already a fan and had heard Sierra, Lost it and Some Changes. Just to know how much he had to do with the sounds etc.
