    "Soldier's Last Letter" Lyrics

    George Hamilton IV

    (Dear God keep America free)
    When the postman delievered a letter it filled her dear heart full of joy
    But she didn't know till she read the end sign
    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 love you so but I'll prove it when this war is won
    I'm writing this down in a trensh 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 knelt 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
