Capo
1st fret
Capo on the 1st fret 
 
    F             C                               G    G7 C 
She Walked to the mailbox on that bright Summer's day 
        F           C            F   G    C     F 
Found a letter from her son in a war far away.  
                C                                   G   G7 
He spoke of the weather and good friends that he'd made 
                C 
Said "I've been thinking about dad and the life that he had that's  
    F   G    Am 
why I'm here today." 
                G      C      G            Am           F 
And then at the end he said, "You are what I'm fighting for" 
                        G            C 
It was the first of the letters from war. 
 
Chorus: 
     F          G                G C           G C 
And she started writing "You are good and your brave 
        C           F          G 
What a father that you'll be someday, 
        G C         G C          F                        G     G7 C 
Make it home make it safe," She wrote every night as she prayed. 
 
      F         C                       G    G7 C 
Then late in December a day she'll not forget 
          F               C                 F   G        C 
oh, her tears stained the paper with every word that she read 
               G       C           G         C 
It said "I was up on a hill I was out there alone 
         G                      F 
When the shots all rang out and bombs were exploding 
G             C           G             C 
That's when I saw him, he came back for me 
      G           C          F          G 
And though he was captured a man set me free 
         F   G        Am                 G        C 
And that man was your son he asked me to write to you 
             G            Am 
I told him I would, oh, I swore," 
            F           G           C 
It was the last of the letters from war.  
         Am 
And she prayed he was living 
C                      F 
Kept on believing and wrote every night just to say. 
 
Chorus: 
         G C           G C 
"You are good and your brave 
        C           F          G 
What a father that you'll be someday, 
        G C         G C          F                        G     G7 C 
Make it home make it safe," and so she kept writing each day. 
 
 F             C                         G    G7 C 
Then two years later, Autumn leaves all around 
        F           C                 F    G       C     F 
A car pulls in the drive way, and she fell to the ground 
                C                                 G 
And out steps a Captain where her boy used to stand  
                 C         G           C            G 
He said "Mom I'm following orders from all of your letters 
    F          G     Am 
And I've come home again." 
             G    C    Am             G             Am 
He ran in to hold her dropped all his bags on the floor 
        F          G            C 
Holding all of her letters from war 
          G C 
Bring him home 
          G C 
Bring him home 
          G C 
Bring him home
