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
