    "Letter to Heaven" Lyrics

    George Jones feat. Dolly Parton

    Dolly Parton

    An old man was sitting at his table one day
    Writing a letter to pass time away
    His little granddaughter climbed up on his knee
    Saying won't you please write a letter for me.

    Oh what must I say in this letter I pray
    Tell mommy I miss her since she went away
    I coming to see her real soon I hope
    He choked back a big lump that rose in his throat.

    He sealed it and wrote on that big envelope
    To God up in heaven you'll get it I hope
    He stamped it and handed it to her to mail
    Her big eyes were shining her little face pale.

    She was crossing the street to the box o'er the way
    And when she stepped out never looked either way
    A big auto hit her and sped away fast
    The little girls prayers had been answered at last.

    The postman was passing and picked up the note
    Addressed to the Master and these words he spoke
    Straight up into heaven this letter did go
    She's happy up there with her mommy I know...
