Bonnie Raitt, "Love Letter"

Here's a good video of Bonnie performing this song:



If you want to see the "official" video for this song, here's the link, but be warned: in my opinion, it's the cheesiest video in the history of music videos! How can Bonnie be both sitting in her car and standing outside, playing her slide guitar? And who are all those other people? Why is she singing about the pouring rain while surrounded by dry desert??

Audio:         



Amazon.com link for the track.

And the lyrics by Bonnie Hayes:

Sittin’ in front of your house, light rain in early dawn
Workin’ on a love letter with the radio on
Got my eye on your window pane and I smoked a lot of cigarettes
Mercy, mercy but love is strange, and you haven’t even kissed me yet

We’d come to push, push comes to shove
Shove comes to touch, touch will come to love
Workin’ on a love letter, listenin’ to a love song
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter, with the radio on

Hope you get the message baby, I know that you’re gonna let me in
It’s weird in your neighborhood, if this is war then I’m gonna win

We’d come to push, push comes to shove
Shove comes to touch, touch will come to love
Love don’t sit waitin’, love don’t behave
Love’s waiting in the car, in the pouring rain now

Workin’ on a love letter, listenin’ to a love song
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter, got the radio on

We’d come to push, push comes to shove
Shove comes to touch, touch has come to love
Workin’ on a love letter, listenin’ to a love song
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter, got the radio on
Workin’ on a love letter, listenin’ to a love song
I’m writing you a love letter, love letter, got the radio on
