Testo degli Emmylou Harris

Qui di seguito puoi leggere il testo della canzone Rosewood Casket degli Emmylou Harris .

(Avie Lee Parton)

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.

--- Instrumental ---

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.

--- Instrumental to fade ---
