Soldier''s Last Letter
Merle Haggard

C                            G
I''m writing this down in a trench Mom
Don''t scold if it isn''t so neat
The way that you did when I was a kid
         G                       C
And I''d come home with mud on my feet

C                             G
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
         G                        C
But for now I''ll just say I love you

C                                     G
Then 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
         G                         C
And she knew that her Soldier had died

C                                G
Then the mother knelt by her bedside
And she prayed ''God above hear my plea
And protect all the sons that are fighting this war
          G                C    A
And dear God keep America free

      D                      A
I''m writing this down in a trench Mom
(Fade)                      D
Don''t scold if it isn''t so neat
