letters from home  John Michael Montgomery



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