Letter Edged In Black Recorded by Stonewall Jackson Written by Roy Carter
C G7 I was standing by my window yesterday morning C Without a thought of worry or of care F When I saw the postman coming up the pathway G7 C With such a jolly face and jolly air
G7 He rang the bell and whistled as he waited C He smiled and said good morning to you Jack F He little knew the sorrow that he brought me G7 C When he handed me that letter edged in black
G7 With trembling hands I took the letter from him C I opened it and this is how it read F Come home my boy your dear old father needs you G7 C Come home my boy your dear old mother's dead
G7 I’m sorry that harsh words were ever spoken C You know I didn’t mean them don’t you Jack F My eyes are blurred my poor old hand is shaking G7 C As I’m writing you this letter edged in black
G7 The last words that your mother ever uttered C Was tell my boy I want him to come back F The angels bear me witness as I am asking G7 C Your forgiveness in this letter edged in black
