SOLDIER'S LAST LETTER by Ernest Tubb [3/4 time] Written by Sgt. Henry Stewart and Ernest Tubb C
G7 When the postman delivered a letter
C It filled her dear heart full of joy
D7 But she didn't know till she read the inside
C It was the last one from her darling boy
G7 Dear Mom was the way that it started
C I miss you so much it went on
D7 Mom I didn't know that I loved you so
C But I'll prove it when this war is won
G7 I'm writing this down in a trench Mom
C Don't scold if it isn't so neat D7 You know as you did when I was a kid
C And I'd come home with mud on my feet
G7 The captain just gave us our orders
C And Mom we will carry them through
D7 I'll finish this letter the first chance I get
C But now I'll just say I love you
G7 Then the mother's old hands began to tremble
C And she fought against tears in her eyes
D7 But they came unashamed for there was no name
C And she knew that her darling had died
G7 That night as she knelt by her bedside
C She prayed Lord above hear my plea
D7 And protect all the sons that are fighting tonight
C And dear God keep America free
