//Verse GA cowpoke rode in one hot dusty day GTo a store down in old San AnDtone He Cstood at the window and GI heard him say GDo I have a Dletter from Ghome GThe postmaster looked through the mail that had come GThen smilingly shook his greDy head The Ccowpoke looked sadly a Gmoment at him GAnd these are the Dwords that he Gsaid //Chorus GNo letter from home, no Cletter from Ghome GThere's never a letter from Dhome GNo message from Mother or Cnone of the Gothers GThere's never a Dletter from Ghome //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.
