Rosewood Casket Lyrics

Artist: Linda Ronstadt
Album: Trio

Traditional, arranged by Avie Lee Parton

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 I 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

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
