Dearest Sarah

	  		
Intro 
Am G Am  
Am G Am 


Verse 
        Am            G                   F              Am 
Dearest Sarah I'm compelled to write with aching fearful hands  
Am             G             F 
Just in case I never make it back  
  Am              G             F 
I left our family weeks ago for battle stricken lands  
      Am              G               Am 
And I fear I wont survive the next attack  

  Am                 G           F               Am 
I fled Rhode Island willingly to join the Union force  
       Am            G            F 
Understanding I may never know my boys  
         Am                     G            F             Am 
But this country's strength of government is in a great divorce  
        Am             G                Am 
And for this I risk my life and all its joys  

   Am         G              F           Am 
Oh Sarah I do understand within my sacrifice  
     Am           G              F 
Goes nearly every joy for you as well  
      Am                 G             F                Am 
But I hope you sense within my words I thought about it twice  
        Am             G             Am 
But our nation cast a thick momentus spell  

tabchorus
Am G Oh Sarah start a life without me Am G Raise our boys to gentlemen Am G F Am Thrive until the day you pass away and we can meet again Am G Understand my inner fight Am G I didn't choose the war Am G I sided with democracy F C As that is what I'm dying for F Am C Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless G Am Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless

Instrumental Am G Am Am G Am Verse Am G F Am Growing up without my father weighed heavy on my brain Am G F And I dread this makes my children dance that waltz Am G F Am And I'm sure at times your trust was breached and your love for me did wane Am G Am But I ask you to forgive me for these faults Am G F Am And I can't express the irony of the peaceful summer breeze Am G F Dusting my batallion as they rest Am G F C 'Cause within this evening warmness lies a dark and icy freeze D Am That whispered me to send you this request
tabchorus
Am G Oh Sarah start a life without me Am G Raise our boys to gentlemen Am G F Am Thrive until the day you pass away and we can meet again Am G Understand my inner fight Am G I didn't choose the war Am G I sided with democracy F C As that is what I'm dying for F C Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless G Am Oh Sarah - it's deathless
tab
Verse Am G F Am I am one of hundred thousand paying all that we can pay Am G F Standing for an object we can't see Am G F Am Now raise our children proudly to be graceous for each day Am G Am And remind them of the reasons they are free Am G F Am If it's true the dead can drift unseen around the loves they had Am G F Then I will be the wind upon your cheek Am G F Am And the darkest moments in your life will never be so bad Am G Am Cause I will be your strength when you are weak
tabchorus
Am G Oh Sarah start a life without me Am G Raise our boys to gentlemen Am G F Am Thrive until the day you pass away and we can meet again Am G Understand my inner fight Am G I didn't choose the war Am G I sided with democracy F C As that is what I'm dying for F C Oh Sarah - my love for you is deathless G Am Oh Sarah - it's deathless G Am Oh Sarah, my love for you is deathless G Am Oh Sarah, my love for you is deathless
