Song from ALI 2001
The song "Death Letter" by Johnny Farmer is a rendition of "Death Letter Blues". Though, upon listening to his version I realized that he changed the hell out of the lyrics. Now, I just listened to the song and wrote them down. Only on word I'm not 100% on. But, music and lyrics in the blues are almost never performed by wrote so, it doesn't matter too much.

His:
I gotta letter this mornin
this is the way my letter read
I gotta letter this mornin
this is the way my letter read
say you better come home papa john
Help me, your baby dead
I've gotta wite a letter
but I believe I'll go myself
I've gotta wite a letter
I believe I'll go myself
hey hear me, letter too slow
and a telegam may get lost
no i aint going to my baby's burying ground
no i aint going to my baby burying ground
But i was standing right there,
when the grave digger let her body down


Original:
I received a letter that my man was dyin'
I received a letter that my man was dyin'
I caught the first plane and went home flyin'

When I got there the folks had gathered around
When I got there the folks had gathered around
His eyes was set and his face was full of frowns

He wasn't dead but he was slowly dyin'
He wasn't dead but he was slowly dyin'
And to think of him I just can't help from cryin'

I followed my daddy to the buryin' ground
I followed my daddy to the buryin' ground
I watched the pall bearers slowly let him down

That was the last time I saw my daddy's face
That was the last time I saw my daddy's face
Mama love you sweet papa but I wish I could take your place
