Subject: Help! Name this tune.

Hi there. A friend of mine is looking for the name of this song. I'm not sure if it's a folk song or country/western any help is appreciated.

Here is the first verse:

In a big front room of a big white house by the fire on a cold winters night,
A little boy sat at Momma's knee with his pencil and paper he writes.
Dear Santa Claus, I'm writing to you to tell you I've been a good boy,
And Momma says if I have been good, you'll bring me red wagon and toys.
But Santa Claus my toys are still new. I still have them all with me here.
Please don't bring toys bring this little boy his Daddy for Christmas this year.

Please send me e-mail if you have anything to offer.

This kind of tear jerker has to be country without the western tag. Sorry, don't know it, but this will get it back to the top for another trip down the page. Maybe you will get somewhere this time around.

Subject: Lyr Add: I'M SENDING A LETTER TO SANTA CLAUS
From: Jim Dixon

Although not the same song, and not the same style, this is built on the same trope:


I'M SENDING A LETTER TO SANTA CLAUS
As recorded by Vera Lynn

I met a little fellow with a letter in his hand.
He asked me if I'd post it in the box for Fairyland.
I slipped it in the mailbox for that little curly head.
It seemed to make him very happy as he smiled and said:

I'm sending a letter to Santa Claus,
A letter I hope he'll receive.
Oh, I wonder if he
Will please remember me
When he calls on Christmas eve.

He'll get a lot of letters for playthings from other girls and boys,
But I want my soldier daddy; he's better that all the toys,
And so I'm sending a letter to Santa Claus,
To bring daddy safely home to me.


[There were also recordings by Gracie Fields and Phyllis Robins.]
