    (Ernest Tubb - Redd Stewart)

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

    The captain just gave us our orders
    And mom we must carry them through
    And I'll finish this letter the first chance I get
    But for now I'll just say I love you.

    Then the mothers old hands began to tremble
    And she fought against tears in her eyes
    But they came unashamed,for there was no name
    And she knew that her soldier had died.

    Then the mother knelt down by her bedside
    And she prayed Lord above hear my plea
    And protect all the sons who are fighting tonight
    And dear God keep America free.

    I'm writing this down in a trensh mom
    Don't scold if it isn't so neat...
