Letter Edged In Black
Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Roy Carter

G D7
I was standing by my window yesterday morning
G
Without a thought of worry or of care
G7 C
When I saw a postman coming up the pathway
D7 G
With such a happy face and jolly air

D7
He rang the bell and whistled as he waited
G
And then he said good morning to you Jack
G7 C
But he little knew the sorrow that he brought me
D7 G
As he handed me a letter edged in black

D7
With trembling hand I took that letter from him
G
I broke the seal and this is what it said
G7 C
Come home my boy your dear old father wants you
D7 G
Come home my boy your dear old mother's dead

D7
The last words your mother ever uttered
G
Were tell my boy I want him to come back
G7 C
My eyes are blurred my poor old heart is breaking
D7 G
While I'm writing you this letter edged in black

D7
I bowed my head in sorrow and in silence
G
The sunshine of my life it all had fled
G7 C
Since the postman brought that letter yesterday morning
D7 G
Come home my boy your dear old mother's dead

D7
Those angry words I wish I'd never spoken
G
You know I did not mean them don't you Jack
G7 C
May the angels bear this message I am sending
D7 G
Your forgiveness in this letter edged in black
