Letter To Heaven

Song Author Dolly Parton Lyrics by: Dolly Parton Performer: Dolly Parton Submitted by: Anonymous


[C]An old man was sitting at his [F]table one [C]day  
[F]Writing a [C]letter to [D7]pass time [G7]away   
His [C]little granddaughter climbed [F]up on his [C]knee
Said [F]won't you [C]please write a [G7]letter for [C]me  

Oh what will I say in this [F]letter I [C]pray
[F]Tell mommy I [C]miss her [D7]since she went [G7]away   
And [C]I'm coming to see her [F]real soon I [C]hope
He [F]choked back a [C]big lump that [G7]arose in his [C]throat

Tell mommy I love her the [F]little girl [C]said
[F]And I pray [C]every evening [D7]fore I go to [G7]bed   
That [C]God up in heaven will [F]answer my [C]prayers
And [F]take me to [C]live with my [G7]mommy up [C]there

He sealed it and wrote on [F]that big [C]envelope
[F]To God up in [C]heaven you'll [D7]get this I [G7]hope   
He [C]stamped it and handed it [F]to her to [C]mail
Her [F]big eyes were [C]shining her [G7]little face [C]pale

She was crossing the street to the [F]box o'er the [C]way  
[F]When she stepped [C]out never [D7]looked either [G7]way   
A [C]big auto hit her and [F]sped away [C]fast
The [F]little girl's [C]prayers had been [G7]answered at [C]last

The postman was passing and [F]picked up the [C]note
[F]Addressed to the [C]Master and [D7]these words he [G7]spoke
[C]Straight up into heaven [F]this letter did [C]go  
She's [F]happy up [C]there with [G7]her mommy I [C]know

An old man was sitting at his table one day
Writing a letter to pass time away
His little granddaughter climbed up on his knee
Said won't you please write a letter for me

Oh what will I say in this letter I pray
Tell mommy I miss her since she went away
And I'm coming to see her real soon I hope
He choked back a big lump that arose in his throat

Tell mommy I love her the little girl said
And I pray every evening fore I go to bed
That God up in heaven will answer my prayers
And take me to live with my mommy up there

He sealed it and wrote on that big envelope
To God up in heaven you'll get this I hope
He stamped it and handed it to her to mail
Her big eyes were shining her little face pale

She was crossing the street to the box o'er the way
When she stepped out never looked either way
A big auto hit her and sped away fast
The little girl's prayers had been answered at last

The postman was passing and picked up the note
Addressed to the Master and these words he spoke
Straight up into heaven this letter did go
She's happy up there with her mommy I know
