by Ernest Tubb     [3/4 time]
Written by Sgt. Henry Stewart and Ernest Tubb
C                            G7
When the postman delivered a letter
It filled her dear heart full of joy
But she didn't know till she read the inside
           G7                        C
It was the last one from her darling boy
Dear Mom was the way that it started
I miss you so much it went on
Mom I didn't know that I loved you so
         G7                        C
But I'll prove it when this war is won
I'm writing this down in a trench Mom
Don't scold if it isn't so neat
You know as you did when I was a kid
        G7                       C
And I'd come home with mud on my feet
The captain just gave us our orders
And Mom we will carry them through
I'll finish this letter the first chance I get
          G7                 C
But now I'll just say I love you
Then the mother's old hands began to tremble
And she fought against tears in her eyes
But they came unashamed for there was no name
        G7                        C
And she knew that her darling had died
That night as she knelt by her bedside
She prayed Lord above hear my plea
And protect all the sons that are fighting tonight
         G7               C
And dear God keep America free
