(Earl Montgomery / J Tidwell)
as recorded by Tammy Wynette
I'll try to write this letter, dear, the best I can,
Although I haven't heard from you in quite a while.
I'm doing just fine,
No complications at this time,
Thought you'd like to know that I'm with child!
I'll send this letter to the last address you gave,
Hoping that the news you heard will make you smile.
There's a list of names enclosed,
Hope you like the one I chose,
Don't be afraid to know that I'm with child!
Our friend came came by last night and gave a xxxx?,
The tiny clothes were all the latest style.
These beauties you should see,
Oh they'll fit in to a T,
Our friend were proud to know that I'm with child!
My prayer is that you'll soon be home
And that this child in me is strong,
I'm lonely but I'm proud to be with child!
