A Letter From Home
Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Maybelle Carter and Dixie Dean

G D7 G
A cowpoke rode in one hot dusty day
D7
To a store down in old San Antone
C G
He stood at the window and I heard him say
D7 G
Do I have a letter from home

D7 G
The postmaster looked through the mail that had come
D7
Then smilingly shook his gray head
C G
The cowpoke looked sadly a moment at him
D7 G
And these are the words that he said

C G
No letter from home no letter from home
D7
There's never a letter from home
G C G
No message from mother or none of the others
D7 G
There's never a letter from home

D7 G
That night he was shot on the wrong side of town
D7
No more on those plains will he roam
C G
I reached for my Bible and gave it to him
D7 G
And said son here's your letter from home

D7 G
If only I had just a little more time
D7
To read it the young cowboy said
C G
I can't take it with me and I must go on
D7 G
Then he died with his letter unread

C G
The letter from home the letter from home
D7
No time for the letter from home
G C G
The cowboy lay dead with his letter unread
D7 G
Too late for the letter from home
