      About "Soldier's Letter"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "Soldier's Letter"

      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 and I'd come
      Home with mud on my feet

      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
      But for 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 soldier had died

      Then the mother knelt down by her bedside
      And she prayed, "Lord above hear my plea"
      And protect all the boys who are fighting tonight
      And dear God, keep America free

      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 and I'd come
      Home with mud on my feet
