Death Letter Lyrics - The White Stripes

Review The Song (4)



I got a letter this morning
What do you reckon it read?
It said the gal you love is dead
I got a letter this morning
What do you reckon it read?

Said "Hurry, Hurry because the gal you love is dead"
Well I packed up my suitcase
I took off down the road
When I got there she was layin' on the cooling board
I packed up my suitcase
And I took off down the road
When I got there she was layin' on the cooling board

It looked like ten thousand people standing around the burial ground
I didn't know I loved her 'till they began to let her down
Looked like ten thousand people standing on the burial ground
I didn't know that I loved her 'till they began to let her down

You know it's so hard to love
Someone that don't love you
Won't get satisfaction
Don't care what you do
So hard to love
Someone that don't love you

Don't look like satisfaction
And I don't care what you do

Well I got up this morning
The break of day
Just hugging the pillows
She used to lay

Got up this morning
The break of day
Just hugging the pillows
Where my baby used to lay

son house | Reviewer: michael thoresen | 6/6/2006

jack white would certainly be the first to acknowledge son house and would want all of his fans to check out the original version. jack's always made exceptional and unusual choices for cover tunes. keep it up.

Excellent song | Reviewer: Kate | 3/3/2006

This is an excellent song covered by an excellent band. Jack White makes good changes in the lyrics and does a great job of making it both a blues and rock song. Go buy De Stijl if you haven't already and listen to it!
