Last Letter Home
My bluegrass band just got in off the road -- Bluegrass Road Trip, the Patchwork String Band 2004 Tour of northern MS!

One of the songs we've been doing is Last Letter Home, which I learned from the Amazing Rhythm Aces:

I can hear the cannons thundering at night
And I cannot help but wonder why the rebels' cause was right
And the morphine seems to do no good at all
And I would run all the way if I would not fall

And I dreamed of a rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you as I placed it in your hair
And if I'm ever on my feet again I will,
I will run all the way just to see you there.

I joined the Southern cavalry for fun
I have rode a thousand horses, always had a way with a gun
Now I'm one of the faceless riders lying still
Swallowed up by the cause on Heroes' Hill.

And I dreamed of a rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you as I placed it in your hair
And if I'm ever on my feet again I will,
I will run all the way just to see you there.


My new favorite song. Seems pretty relevant today.
