    "Soldier's Last Letter" Lyrics

    Dave Dudley

    Recorded by Ernest Tubb
    Written by Sgt. Henry Stewart and Ernest Tubb

    When the postman delivered a letter
    It filled her dear heart full of joy
    But she didn't know til she read the inside
    It was the last one from her darling 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.
