      Lyrics for Patty Loveless - "Tear-Stained Letter"

      (Richard Thompson)
      (Track 1 - Time 3:28)

      It was three in the morning when he took me apart
      He wrecked my house and he wrecked my heart
      He danced on my head like Arthur Murray
      The scars ain't never going to mend in a hurry
      Just when I thought that things would get better
      Right through the door came a tear-stained letter

      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter
      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter

      Well, my head was spinning just a little to fast
      It was writing checks that my body couldn't cash
      I jumped to my feet, I was reelin' and a-dizzy
      I went for the phone but the line was busy
      Just when I thought that things would get better
      Right through the door came a tear-stainted letter

      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter
      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter

      Now, I like coffee and I like tea
      But I just don't like this feeling in me
      It makes me nervous, it gives me the hives
      Looking for the truth in a pack of lies
      Just when I thought that things would get better
      Right through the door came a tear-stained letter

      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter
      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter

      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter
      Whoa, oh, oh Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
      Cry and cry if it makes you feel better
      Set it all down in a tear-stained letter
