My Dear Son, it is almost June,
I hope this letter catches up to you, and finds you well.
Its been dry but theyíre calling for rain,
And everything's the same olí same in Johnsonville.
Your stubborn 'ol Daddy ainít said too much,
But Iím sure you know he sends his love,
And she goes on,
In a letter from home.


I hold it up and show my buddies,
Like we ainít scared and our boots ainít muddy, and they all laugh,
Like thereís something funny boutí the way I talk,
When I say: "Mama sends her best yíall."
I fold it up an' put it in my shirt,
Pick up my gun an' get back to work.
An' it keeps me driving on,
Waiting on letters from home.


My Dearest Love, its almost dawn.
Iíve been lying here all night long wondering where you might be.
I saw your Mama and I showed her the ring.
Man on the television said something so I couldnít sleep.
But Iíll be all right, Iím just missing you.
An' this is me kissing you:
XXís and OOís,
In a letter from home.


I hold it up and show my buddies,
Like we ainít scared and our boots ainít muddy, and they all laugh,
'Cause she calls me "Honey", but they take it hard,
'Cause I donít read the good parts.
I fold it up an' put it in my shirt,
Pick up my gun an' get back to work.
An' it keeps me driving on,
Waiting on letters from home.


Dear Son, I know I ainít written,
But sittin' here tonight, alone in the kitchen, it occurs to me,
I might not have said, so Iíll say it now:
Son, you make me proud


I hold it up and show my buddies,
Like we ainít scared and our boots ainít muddy, but no one laughs,
'Cause there ainít nothing funny when a soldier cries.
An' I just wipe me eyes.
I fold it up an' put it in my shirt,
Pick up my gun an' get back to work.
An' it keeps me driving on,
Waiting on letters from home.
