Dear Corrine,
On the third, got your letter from the first.
I've been so tired,
but now I'm fine.
I've got a bar, said he's swell,
said he takes his time telling folks to go to hell,
with a handlebar riding across his face.
Should the medicine fail me today,
send a prayer, if you can, my way.
If my body breaks, then my heart you'll take this time.
Without you, its hard to sleep.
It's a wooden shack but it's mine and its cheap,
and a half a block from the job I got.
oh, hey my doll, did you hear?
Mother's a mess and we all live in fear.
And nature, she's gonna take her course.
And when the night falls black over me,
and the moon crawls over the sea,
if my body breaks, then my heart you'll take this time.
Dear Corrine, won't you send me your love?
tie a note to the foot of a dove.
If my body breaks, then my heart you'll take this time.
Darling, did you get the money?
Twenty three dollars is all I could manage today.
Will that be okay?
Went to the beach just yesterday,
Hope its nice when you make it out this way, Corrine.
The sand was warm on my feet.
But when the night falls black over me,
and the moon crawls over the sea.
If my body breaks, then my heart you'll take this time.
And if the wind rushes into my bones, picks me up and delivers me home,
and if my body breaks, then my heart you'll take this time.

    General CommentI think it's: "I've got a boss, and he's swell" and "Hank shipped off, yeah, did you hear?"

    General CommentOkay, I know
    "I've got a bar, said he's swell"
    and
    "oh, hey my doll, did you hear?"
    are totally off, but I couldn't make it out. I think the rest is pretty accurate though.

    So just edit them if you've got anything better, but don't be a dick and say: "THESE LYRICS ARE TOTALLY WRONG."
    Thanks.
