Capo 3
Intro: G, Am7, G/B, C2. X2

G         Am7                G/B     C2      
          Am7                   G/B      C2
     She walked to the mailbox,          On that bright summer’s day
G                 Am7              G/B    C2         
(G) (D)      G
     Found a letter from her son,          in a war far away
G     Am7             G/B      C2     G     
           Am7                  G/B    C2
He spoke of the weather             And good friends that he’d made
                           G                       Am7               
          C2
Said, “I’ve been thinking ‘bout Dad And the life that he had.
                   (G)  (D)           G                   
       G
That’s why I’m here today.” Then at the end he said
 G/D                    Dsus             C2                 
             Dsus                 G    D/F#   C2  G/B
“You are what I’m fighting for.” It was the first of his letters from war.

C2              D                      C2                     
      Dsus
She started writing Your good, and you’re brave
              C2/E                             D/F#
What a father that youll be some day
              C2                     Dsus
Make it home, make it safe
       C2/E                                   D/F#
She wrote every night as she prayed

 G    Am7      G/B       C2    G         
           G/B      C2
And late in December         A day she’ll not forget
 G                   Am7            G/B    C2        
        (G)  D/F#       G
   Oh, her tears stained the paper   With every word that she read
                    G                            Am7
It said I was up on a hill I was out there alone
                    G/B                          C2
When the shots all rang out and bombs were exploding
G                                         D/F#
That’s when I saw him He came back for me
        C2                                          G/D
And though he was captured a man set me free
                C2  D/F#         G                            
      G
And that man was your son He asked me to write to you
   C2                 Dsus           C                        
            Dsus             G   D/F#    C/E    B/D
I told him I would Oh I swore It was the last of the letters from war

               Am7                                G/B
And she prayed he was living and kept on believing
         F
And wrote every night just to say
              C2                         Dsus
You are good, and you’re brave
              C2/E                             D/F#
What a father that youll be some day
              C2                     Dsus
Make it home, make it safe
  C2/E                               D/F#
Still she kept writing each day

G       Am7                    G/B    C2
  And then, two years later,
G              Am7           G/B    C2     
          Am7          G/B        C2
Autumn leaves all around                 A car pulled in the driveway
                  (G)      D/F#              G                
Am7              G/B    C2
And she     fell       to     the ground    And out stepped a captain
G               Am7             G/B          C2      
               G                Am7
Where her boy used to stand    he said, “Mom, I’m following orders
         G/B            C2             C/E           
         G
From all of your letters and I’ve come home again
                    D/F#     G         C/E                  
                  C     G/B
He ran in to hold     her and dropped all his bags on the floor
              C             D7sus                 G    
    C/E     G/D    C    G/B    C
Holding all of her letters from war.

Dsus            G        D/F#    C/E    G/D 
  C    G/B   C
  Bring him home,
Dsus            G        D/F#    C/E    G/D 
  C    G/B   C
  Bring him home,
Dsus            G        D/F#    C/E    G/D 
  C    G/B   Am7    G/B    CG
  Bring him home,
