letters from home

John Michael Montgomery



 C
 My dearest son itâs almost June
I hope this letter catches up with you
 FC
And finds you well, itâs been dry but theyâre callinâ for rain
 F
And everythingâs the same old same in Johnsonville
 AmGF
 Your stubborn old daddy ainât said to much
But Iâm sure you know he sends his love
 GC
And she goes on in a letter from home·
(Chorus)
 F
 I hold it up and show my buddies
Like we ainât scared and our boots ainât muddy
 CAm
And they all laugh like thereâs somethinâ funny about the way I talk
 F
When I say momma send her best yaâll
I fold it up and put it in my shirt
Pick up my gun and get back to work
 CAmFC
 And it keeps me drivinâ on waitinâ on letters from home
 C
 My dearest love itâs almost dawn
Iâve been lying here all night long
 F
 Wonderinâ where you might be
 C
 I saw your momma and I showed her the ring
 F
Man the television said some thing so I couldnât sleep
 AmGF
 But Iâll be allright Iâm just missinâ you
 GC
And this is me kissinâ you xâs and oâs in a letter from home·
(Chorus)
 F
 I hold it up and show my buddies
Like we ainât scared and our boots ainât muddy
 C
And they all laugh cause she calls me honey
 AmF
But they take it hard cause I donât read the good part
I fold it up and put it in my shirt
Pick up my gun and get back to work
 CAmFC
 And it keeps me drivinâ on waitinâ on letters from home·
 Dm
 Dear son I know I ainât written
 FC
But sittinâ here tonight alone in the kitchen it occurs to me
 Am
I might not have said it so Iâll say it now
 F
Son you make me proud
(Chorus)
 F
 I hold it up and show my buddies
Like we ainât scared and our boots ainât muddy
 CAm
But no one laughs cause there ainât nothinâ funny when a soldier cries
 F
And I just wipe my eyes
I fold it up and put it in my shirt
Pick up my gun and get back to work
 CAmFGC
 And it keeps me drivinâ on waitinâ on letters from home·
