LAST LETTER HOME (Lyrics by David "Butch" Mcdade / James.H.Brown Jnr) Transcribed by Alan Percy The Amazing Rhythm Aces From the Album "Burning the Ballroom Down" Verse .1. (D)I have heard the cannons thundering all(G)night And I(D)cannot sleep for wondering why's a rebels cause so(A)right And the(D)morphine seems to do no good at(G)all And I would(A)run away it I would not(D)fall Verse .2. I joined the southern cavalry for(G)fun And I had(D)rode a thousand horses Always had a way with a(A)gun Now I'm(D)among the horseless riders Iying(G)still Swallowed(A)up by the cause on the widows(D)hill Chorus And I(Bm)dreamed about a rose in a Spanish(F#m)garden And I(Bm)kissed you and I placed it in your(F#m)hair (A) And if I'm(D)ever on my feet again I(G)will And I will(A)run all the way just to meet you(D)there. Verse .3 (Added on the 1996 Album "Ride Again Vol.1) Through the day I watched those southern boys go(G)down And they(D)lay like Georgia peaches bruised and broken on the(A)ground Through the(D)night I wondered was it worth the(G)pain And I(A)cried not revenge I called your(D)name Repeat Chorus

I do this in C, using an Am/Em on the chorus. Rolls out pretty good and matches my vocal range better. Great song. Butch McDade was a master.
