TonyK Lyr Req: Last Letter Home (McDade, Brown) (17) RE: LYR REQ: Last Letter Home - Sam Bush 28 Jun 99

I was just about to start a thread about this song when I saw yours, Roger. I've played it many times in the past and was very surprised to hear Sam Bush sing it on Prarie Home Companion this weekend, especially since he sang a verse I hadn't heard before. I'm familiar with the verses that Folk 1234 listed and am looking for the new one that mentions the broken Southern soldiers laying about the field like trampled Georgia peaches. A web search revealec it to be on Sam's album 'Late as Usual' and I may have to get it unless I get lucky. I learned it from the Amazing Rhythm Aces back in the 70's. The chords are simple enough: C---,F---,C---,--G-G7-(2 extra beats in the measure),C---,F---,G---,C---, (repeat) Then the chorus: Am---,Em---,Am---,Em-G-,C---,F---,G---,C---. I'm hoping someone may have taped the program. I intended to but company came over and I forgot.> Here with fingers crossed.>TonyK
