hello Momma
It’s Jimmy your favorite son
here’s my weekly letter
just one more and I’m done
I just can’t wait to see you
to tell you it’s all right
they say I’m coming home now
just one more lonely night

Oh no Momma,
there’s trouble on rise
as I sat here writing to you
the sky was set on fire
So I’m finishing this letter
with my rifle in my arms
and I’m praying they’ll give it to you
or I’ll make it back to the farm

As the sky falls down around us
I think of summer nights mid july
all the fire works above us
and daddy pulled us in and held us tight
I hope I’ll get another midwest summer night

Hello momma
I’m a friend my name is Jack
and I’m reading you this letter
cause Jimmy’s not coming back
he wants you to remember
he wants you to recall
the words he whispered to you
when he left home in the fall
