Soldiers Last Letter

	  		C When the postman delivered a G letter 
It filled her dear heart full of C joy 
But she didn't know til she D read the inside 
It was the G last one from her darling C 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 
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. 
I'll finish this letter the first chance I get 
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  
And she knew that her darling had died. 
 
That night as she knealt by her bedside 
She prayed Lord above hear my plea 
And protect all the sons that are fighting tonight 
And dear God keep America free.
