Love Letters
Ketty Lester
Written by Victor Young and Edward Heyman

Peaked at # 5 in 1962
Revoyda Frierson's first and only Top 10 single, released under her stage-
name "Ketty Lester." Ketty later commented that the song was recorded in a
garage studio in LA, and, surprisingly, her vocals were recorded in a
bathroom. Cover version of Dick Haymes' 1945 Top 15 pop hit. Later
performed by Elvis as a Top 20 hit in 1966.

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And, darling, then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

I memorize every line
And I kiss the name that you sign
And, darlin', then I read again right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart
