Song Information

First recording and first release by Stanley Brothers (1963)


I don’t want your rambling letters Don’t want your picture in a frame All I want is you in person Won’t you let me change your name Mama said you’d come home soon Papa warned me not to wait Sister thinks that you still love me Hurry home right away I’m so tired of long distance kisses Love by mail is all so cold I just want you in my arms dear Then our love just can’t grow old
