Song: Soldiers Last Letter Tablature for Guitar



As recorded by Merle Haggard and
originally Ernest Tubb

When the postman delivered a letter
And it filled her dear heart full of joy
Because she didn't know 'till she read the inside
It was the last one from her darlin' 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
But I'll prove it when this war is won.

I'm writing this down in a trench Mom
So don't scold if it isn't so neat
You know as you did when I was a kid
And I'd come home with mud on my feet

The captain just gave us our orders
And Mom we will carry them through
And I'll finish this letter the first chance I get
But for now I'll just say I love you

The mother's old hands began to tremble
As she fought against tears in her eyes
But they came unashamed for there was no name
And she knew her poor darlin had died

That night as she knelt by her bedside
She prayed 'Lord above hear my plea and
Protect all the son's who are fighting to night
And dear God keep America free
