1460 Elder Street Recorded by Red Sovine Written by Bun Wilson and Doc Richardson
C F C I was waiting for a ship to Vietnam G7 And me being the good time loving guy I am C F C I was looking for some female company F C G7 C I met a girl alone and lonesome just like me
F C We had coffee at a waterfront cafe G7 She said her husband was a soldier far away C F C And she talked about her long nights all alone F C G7 C And the way she's fought temptation since he's gone
F C 1460 Elder Street is where she took me F C G7 And I never knew that love could be so sweet C F C Then she promised me that when the war was over F G7 C I'd have a home at 1460 Elder Street
F C Two months later I was on patrol one day G7 When a hand grenade fell not ten feet away C F C I watched as one brave man gave all that he could give F C G7 C He fell across it gave his life that I might live
F C I found a crumpled tear stained letter in his coat G7 And I read the Dear John Letter his wife wrote C F C He had nothing left for livin' for I guess F C G7 C I thought I die when I saw her return address
F C 1460 Elder Street still drives me crazy F C G7 And sometimes at night we find it hard to sleep C F C Could it be the ones who killed him now are sharing F G7 C Our private hell at 1460 Elder Street
