The Great Mail Robbery

Song Author Joseph Paul Allen Performer: Rex Allen Jr. Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]He met me at the corner with his hand above his hip
Prepared to shoot me down with his toy [Am]gun   
He [D7]said I've got a little score to settle with you sir
And it's all about the way you hurt my [G]mom  


It seems that you've forgotten there's a letter in your pouch
The one to tell her [G7]where my daddy's [C]gone
And [D7]you'd better hand it over if you don't want to fight
Cause today I'm bringing daddy's letter [G]home


I asked him what his name was he said my name is Tim
And I'm momma's little man at six years [Am]old   
Don't [D7]ask me any questions cause I'm here to rob the mail
And you'd better do exactly like you're [G]told


Cause last night I heard momma crying and call my daddy's name
She kept me up all [G7]night until the [C]dawn
I'm [D7]really not a bad guy I don't want to shoot you down
But today I'm bringing daddy's letter [G]home


Then his lips began to tremble and his hands began to shake
He said I don't believe you under[Am]stand
Since [D7]my daddy went away and left us here alone
I've done my best to be a little [G]man  


I thought that it might help my mom if I could rob the mail
And try to find out [G7]where my daddy's [C]gone
And [D7]the last thing that I promised her when I strapped on the gun
Today I'm bringing daddy's letter [G]home


Ever since that day that Timmy tried to rob the mail
I've wondered how a [G7]kid could be so [C]strong
The [D7]last thing that he promised her when he strapped on his gun
Today I'm bringing daddy's letter [G]home


He met me at the corner with his hand above his hip
Prepared to shoot me down with his toy gun
He said I've got a little score to settle with you sir
And it's all about the way you hurt my mom

It seems that you've forgotten there's a letter in your pouch
The one to tell her where my daddy's gone
And you'd better hand it over if you don't want to fight
Cause today I'm bringing daddy's letter home

I asked him what his name was he said my name is Tim
And I'm momma's little man at six years old
Don't ask me any questions cause I'm here to rob the mail
And you'd better do exactly like you're told

Cause last night I heard momma crying and call my daddy's name
She kept me up all night until the dawn
I'm really not a bad guy I don't want to shoot you down
But today I'm bringing daddy's letter home

Then his lips began to tremble and his hands began to shake
He said I don't believe you understand
Since my daddy went away and left us here alone
I've done my best to be a little man

I thought that it might help my mom if I could rob the mail
And try to find out where my daddy's gone
And the last thing that I promised her when I strapped on the gun
Today I'm bringing daddy's letter home

Ever since that day that Timmy tried to rob the mail
I've wondered how a kid could be so strong
The last thing that he promised her when he strapped on his gun
Today I'm bringing daddy's letter home
