[Refrain]
C                                  G 
I'm writing this down in a trench, mom
                           C                                        
Don't scold if it isn't so neat
                                  D
The way that you did when I was a kid
        G                        C
And I'd come home with mud on my feet

[Verse 1]
C                            G
The captain just gave us our orders
                             C
And Mom I will carry them through
                                 D
And I'll finish this letter, the first chance I get
        G                         C
But for now I'll just say, I love you

[Verse 2]
C                                    G
Then the mother's old hands began to tremble
                                    C 
And she fought against tears in her eyes
                               D          
But they came unashamed 'cause there was no name
    G                             C
And she knew that her soldier had died

[Verse 3]
C                              G
And then she knelt down by her bedside
                                   C
And she prayed, Lord above hear my plea
                                 D
Protect all the soldiers who are fighting tonight
    G                      C
And dear God, keep America free

[Refrain]
C                                  G 
I'm writing this down in a trench, mom
                           C                                        
Don't scold if it isn't so neat
                                  D
The way that you did when I was a kid
        G                        C
And I'd come home with mud on my feet
