Gene Autry – At Mail Call Today Lyrics

[Verse 1]
At mail call today dear your last letter came
I just stood there smiling ’til they called my name
As I read it over the sky turned to grey
And tears dimmed my eyes love at mail call today
[Verse 2]
I can’t understand love what’s happened to you
The day that I sailed love you said you’d be true
But now it’s all over what more can I say
My poor heart was broken at mail call today
[Verse 3]
I slept in the foxhole amid shot and shell
I’m telling you now love it’s worse than all hell
I thought you would wait love while I was away
But my castle tumbled at mail call today
[Verse 4]
I hope you’ll be happy with somebody new
But always remember my heart beats for you
Good luck and God bless you wherever you stray
The world for me ended at mail call today
