    She runs to the mailbox
    On that bright summers day
    Found a letter from her son
    In a war far away

    He spoke of the weather
    And good friends that he'd made
    Said I'd been thinking 'bout dad
    And the life that he had
    Thats why I'm here today
    And that the end he said
    You are what I'm fighting for
    It was the first of the letters from war

    She started writing
    (Chorus)
    Your good and your brave
    What a father that you'll be someday
    Bring him home
    Bring him safe

    She wrote everynight as she prayed

    Late in December
    A day she'll not forget
    Oh her tears stained the paper
    With every word that she read

    It said I was up on a hill
    I was out there alone
    When the shots all rang out
    And bombs were exploding
    And thats when I saw him
    He came back to me
    And though he was captured
    A man set me free
    And that man was your son

    He asked me to write to you
    I told him i would oh I swore
    It was the last of the letters from war

    And she prayed he was living
    Kept on believing and wrote every night just to say

    (Chorus)

    Then two years later
    Autumn leaves all around
    A car pulled in the driveway
    And she fell to the ground
    And out stepped a captain
    Where her boy used to stand

    Said mom I'm following orders
    From all of your letters
    And I've come home again
    He ran into hold her
    And dropped all his bags on the floor
    Holding all of her letters from war

    Bring him home
    Bring him home
    Bring him hom
