Song: Keys in the Mailbox
Recorded by: Tony Booth
Songwriters: Harlan Howard

Oh the key's in the mailbox come on in

Oh jealous me and careless you the odds were just too great
I couldn't take those lonely nights you made me sit and wait
I thought I'd seen the last of you when you walked out of sight
Instead I see you in my dreams each night

Oh the key's in the mailbox come on in
I'm sitting here wishing dear I had your love again
I'll never even ask you where you've been
So the key's in the mailbox come on in

[ fiddle ]
I said I'd rather be alone than share your company
I said don't come around at all if you want more than me
But sitting here alone I can't deny the flame that burns
I'll gladly take you back on any terms

Oh the key's in the mailbox come on in...
Oh the key's in the mailbox come on in
