Empty Old Mailbox

Song Author Tom T. Hall og Dixie Hall Performer: Don Rigsby Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Empty old mailbox down [D7]there by the [G]road
Mail [C]truck drives by but it don't even [G]slow
[C]Sweet honeysuckle grows over the [G]place
Where your farewell words took the [D7]smile from my [G]face

[C]Empty old mailbox and a heart full of [G]pain
[C]Seasons roll by but the [G]hurtin's the [D7]same   
[G]Darling please write me don't [C]waste precious [G]time
Or you'll have an empty old [D7]mailbox like [G]mine

A lonely old dog wandered [D7]by there to[G]day  
He [C]sniffed for a moment then went on his [G]way  
[C]A pair of young bluebirds out seeking to [G]nest
Passed over the mailbox like [D7]all of the [G]rest

[C]Empty old mailbox and a heart full of [G]pain
[C]Seasons roll by but the [G]hurtin's the [D7]same   
[G]Darling please write me don't [C]waste precious [G]time
Or you'll have an empty old [D7]mailbox like [G]mine

I say I won't go to the [D7]mailbox to[G]day  
That [C]lasts 'til eleven then I'm on my [G]way  
[C]Down at the mailbox I'm faced with the [G]truth
It's empty as promises [D7]given by [G]you  

[C]Empty old mailbox and a heart full of [G]pain
[C]Seasons roll by but the [G]hurtin's the [D7]same   
[G]Darling please write me don't [C]waste precious [G]time
Or you'll have an empty old [D7]mailbox like [G]mine

Empty old mailbox down there by the road
Mail truck drives by but it don't even slow
Sweet honeysuckle grows over the place
Where your farewell words took the smile from my face

Empty old mailbox and a heart full of pain
Seasons roll by but the hurtin's the same
Darling please write me don't waste precious time
Or you'll have an empty old mailbox like mine

A lonely old dog wandered by there today
He sniffed for a moment then went on his way
A pair of young bluebirds out seeking to nest
Passed over the mailbox like all of the rest

Empty old mailbox and a heart full of pain
Seasons roll by but the hurtin's the same
Darling please write me don't waste precious time
Or you'll have an empty old mailbox like mine

I say I won't go to the mailbox today
That lasts 'til eleven then I'm on my way
Down at the mailbox I'm faced with the truth
It's empty as promises given by you

Empty old mailbox and a heart full of pain
Seasons roll by but the hurtin's the same
Darling please write me don't waste precious time
Or you'll have an empty old mailbox like mine
