Letter Edged In Black

Höfundur lags: Hattie Nevada Flytjandi: Stonewall Jackson Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]I was standing by my window yesterday [G7]morning
Without a thought of worry or of [C]care
When I saw the postman coming up the [F]pathway
With [G7]such a jolly face and jolly [C]air  

He rang the bell and whistled as he [G7]waited
He smiled and said good morning to you [C]Jack
He little knew the sorrow that he [F]brought me
When he [G7]handed me that letter edged in [C]black

With trembling hands I took the letter [G7]from him
I opened it and this is how it [C]read
Come home my boy your dear old father [F]needs you
Come [G7]home my boy your dear old mother's [C]dead

I´m sorry that harsh words were ever [G7]spoken
You know I didn´t mean them don´t you [C]Jack
My eyes are blurred my poor old hand is [F]shaking
As I´m [G7]writing you this letter edged in [C]black

The last words that your mother ever [G7]uttered
Was tell my boy I want him to come [C]back
The angels bear me witness as I am [F]asking
Your [G7]forgiveness in this letter edged in [C]black
