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
