G  C  G  D  G

GA cowpoke rode in one hot dusty day
G DTo a store down in old San Antone
C G He stood at the window and I heard him say
G D GDo I have a letter from home
GThe postmaster looked through the mail that had come
G DThen smilingly shook his grey head
C GThe cowpoke looked sadly a moment at him
G D GAnd these are the words that he said
G C GNo letter from home, no letter from home
G DThere's never a letter from home
G C G No message from Mother or none of the others
G D GThere's never a letter from home
//Break G D G //Repeat verse That night he was shot on the wrong side of town No more on those plains will he roam I reached for my Bible and gave it to him And said son here's your letter from home If only I had just a little more time To read it The young cowboy said I can't take it with me and I must go on Then he died with his letter unread //Repeat chorus The letter from home, the letter from home No time for the letter from home The cowboy lay dead with his letter unread Too late for the letter from home //Outro G D G //This obviously doesn't do Cash's song any justice, but it's fun to play and sing along to. Hope this helped you out. -Seb B.
