Key: Am

Sullivan Ballou  3/28/1829 Smithfield RI, Killed at 1st Bull Run July 21, 1861

Artist : Larry Luvaul
4/4/2011

Verse 2 and 4 are spoken with music, the rest of the verses are sung

Am...

Verse 1
Am      C               G           Am    
My dear Sarah, we shall move on the morrow
Am     C            G           Am  
I feel impelled, to write a few lines
Am      C                G               Am   
In this letter, that may fall under your eyes.
    Am         C          G          Am   
The day may be dark and I will be no more.

Chorus:
Em       D               Am      
Sarah my love for you is deathless
   Em            D               Am   
It binds me with cables none can break
    Em         D                Am  
Yet my love of country's like a strong wind
   Em        D             Am 
It pushes me onward to the battlefield

Verse 2 Spoken
    Am          C        G                Am 
The mem'ries of blissful times spent with you
       Am      C        G             Am  
I feel grateful,  we enjoyed them so long.
     Am                  C        G          Am   
It's hard to give up the hopes, I carried so strong.
     Am            C           G            Am  
That we might be together and seen our sons grew

Verse3
Am       C         G               Am  
If I die Sarah, my love for you is endless
Am           C                  G           Am    
When my last breath, calls your name on the field.
Am         C          G               Am   
Forgive my faults and pains, that are real.
    Am            C            G            Am 
I'd wash out with tears, every spot on your happiness

Chorus:
Em       D               Am      
Sarah my love for you is deathless
   Em            D               Am   
It binds me with cables none can break
    Em         D                Am  
Yet my love of country's like a strong wind
   Em        D             Am 
It pushes me onward to the battlefield

Verse 4 Spoken
Am         C           G                Am  
Sarah if I could flit around, unseen in death
     Am      C          G            Am   
Then I shall always, be near to your light.
Am          C        G             Am  
In the gladdest days and darkest nights
    Am              C             G                Am    
The soft breeze you feel, on your cheek will be my breath.

Verse 5
Am             C          G                 Am 
Sarah when the cool air, 'round your temple fans
   Am       C         G           Am 
It shall be my spirit,    passing by.
   Am       C    G               Am 
So Sarah do not mourn me when I die
Am                C         G             Am   
Think of me gone and wait   til we meet again.

Chorus:
Em       D               Am      
Sarah my love for you is deathless
   Em            D               Am   
It binds me with cables none can break
    Em         D                Am  
Yet my love of country's like a strong wind
   Em        D             Am 
It pushes me onward to the battlefield
