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
