emmylou harris – rosewood casket lyrics

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
[ mandolin ]
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
[ ac.guitar – mandolin ]
