Write Me a Letter

I know that I haven't been around in a bit
But, Mama, don't think that I could ever forget
You probably been wonderin' as to where that I've been
Got picked up last week, and I'm stuck in the pin
And I know that I haven't been the best son
You can't forgive me for all the things that I done
But my attorney tells me that I got a good case
So, write me a letter, Ma, and send me your grace

Write me a letter, give me a call
'Cause I've been inside for way too long
With all of my sorrows and all my regrets
Write me a letter, and help me forget

Well, hey there, John, man, it's been a long time
And I hope that you and the boys are doin' just fine
You probably been wonderin' why I don't hang around
I've been stuck in county since that shit when down
And it might be a lot to inquire about
That you and the boys could pull some dough, and help me get out
'Cause us and the gang, man, ain't we been through it all?
Just let me know, buddy, just give me a call

And write me a letter, give me a call
'Cause I've been inside for way too long
With all of my sorrows and all my regrets
Write me a letter, and help me forget

Knowin' you're with me, it keeps me holding on
Knowin' you miss me whenever I'm gone
With you all in my heart is my only escape
And oh, how I wish for a loving embrace

Well, Mama, I haven't heard from you in a while
It's been about a year, but I'm still tryin' to smile
I couldn't pull bail, and I lost in the case
And ain't no one willin' to help out in this place
I hope you get this, I hope you respond
'Cause I ain't talked to no one ever since I've been gone
And I don't know if I'll ever see you all again
I just want a family, I just want a friend

So, write me a letter, give me a call
'Cause I been inside for way too long
With all of my sorrows and all my regrets
Write me a letter, and help me forget

Write me a letter, give me a call
'Cause I been inside for way too long
With all of my sorrows and all my regrets
Write me a letter, and help me forget
