A Letter From Home Song Lyrics and Chords by Johnny Cash

 

A Letter From Home
Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Maybelle Carter and Dixie Dean
G 
A cowpoke rode in  
D7 
one hot dusty  
G 
day
 
To a store down in old San  
D7 
Antone
 
He  
C 
stood at the window and  
G 
I heard him say
 
Do I have a  
D7 
letter from  
G 
home
 
The postmaster looked through the  
D7 
mail that had  
G 
come
 
Then smilingly shook his gray  
D7 
head
 
The  
C 
cowpoke looked sadly a  
G 
moment at him
 
And these are the  
D7 
words that he  
G 
said
 
No letter from home no  
C 
letter from  
G 
home
 
There's never a letter from  
D7 
home
G 
No message from mother or  
C 
none of the  
G 
others
 
There's never a  
D7 
letter from  
G 
home
 
That night he was shot  
D7 
on the wrong side of  
G 
town
 
No more on those plains will he  
D7 
roam
 
I  
C 
reached for my Bible and  
G 
gave it to him
 
And said son here's your  
D7 
letter from  
G 
home
 
If only I had just a  
D7 
little more  
G 
time
 
To read it the young cowboy  
D7 
said
 
I  
C 
can't take it with me and  
G 
I must go on
 
Then he died with his  
D7 
letter 
 
un
G 
read
 
The letter from home the  
C 
letter from  
G 
home
 
No time for the letter from  
D7 
home
G 
The cowboy lay dead with  
C 
his letter  
G 
unread
 
Too late for the  
D7 
letter from  
G 
home

Who is Johnny Cash?
- John R. Cash (born J. R. Cash February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Much of Cash's music contained themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career. He was known for his deep, calm bass-baritone voice, the distinctive sound of his Tennessee Three backing band characterized by train-like chugging guitar rhythms, a rebelliousness coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor, free prison concerts, and a trademark all-black stage wardrobe which earned him the nickname "The Man in Black".Born to poor cotton farmers in Kingsland, Arkansas, Cash rose to fame in the burgeoning rockabilly scene in Memphis, Tennessee, after four years in the Air Force. He traditionally began his concerts by simply introducing himself, "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash", followed by "Folsom Prison Blues", one of his signature songs. Alongside "Folsom Prison Blues", his other signature songs include "I Walk the Line", "Ring of Fire", "Get Rhythm", and "Man in Black". He also recorded humorous numbers like "One Piece at a Time" and "A Boy Named Sue", a duet with his future wife June called "Jackson" (followed by many further duets after their wedding), and railroad songs such as "Hey, Porter", "Orange Blossom Special", and "Rock Island Line". During the last stage of his career, he covered songs by contemporary rock artists of the time his most notable covers were "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails, "Rusty Cage" by Soundgarden and, "Personal Jesus" by Depeche Mode.
Cash is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. His genre-spanning music embraced country, rock and roll, rockabilly, blues, folk, and gospel sounds. This crossover appeal earned him the rare honor of being inducted into the Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Gospel Music Halls of Fame.
