      About "Soldier's Last Letter"

      Lyrics for Ernest Tubb - "Soldier's Last Letter"

      When the postman delivered a letter
      It filled her dear heart full of joy
      But she didn't know till 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 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
