Lyrics

I got a mind to give up livin'
Yes and go shopping instead
I've got a mind to give up livin'
Yes and go shopping instead
Pick me a tombstone and be pronounced dead

When I read your letter this morning
That was on your place in bed
When I read your letter this morning
That was on your place in bed
That's when I decided that I'd be better off dead

It read "Daddy, it's no use looking
Or ever hoping to get me back"
It read "Daddy, it's no use looking
Or ever hoping to get me back"
"Because it's all over now
And baby you can bet on that"
