Verse 1
G	    Em			         C				G
Back in 41 you met a brown eyed boy who called you pretty
G	 	        Em				C					G
He’d walk every day couple miles out of his way to hold your hand and keep you company
Em			C	       G	  C		  G	       D
Your mama said don’t call it love at 14 but sitting on that front porch swing
(Chorus)
		G
He gave you his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck
D/F#	Em					      D/F#   C				G
Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget the way it felt when he held your hand
						D/F#  Em
And you swore that you would never take it off and the butterflies you felt said it all
C					G		D/F#
You were falling with a boy inside your locket
Verse 2
G		Em				     C				G
Back in 43 that brown eyed boy went overseas and had to leave town for a little while
G			    Em				C		G		
He swore he’d marry you soon as the war was through you would be his wife
Em		C	G	C				D
Standing in the pouring rain you cried as you watched him ride away
(Chorus)
Em D			   G				
But every day you had his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck
D/F#	Em					    D/F#    C			      G
Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget the way his kiss tasted on your lips
D/F#	    G					D/F#     Em					
And every day felt like a lifetime with him gone and you pray that god would bring him safely home
	C					G
Cuz you made a promise to the boy inside your locket
       Em	     C			G			     D
Oh 60 years you 2 had together he’s been gone for a couple now 
	Em			   C
And it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember 
G			   D
I’ve been writing all your memories down
	    C		G
And I stop by today to read a couple pages
Em			G		C	G
Grandma you sure look pretty and you smile that smile
       C		     G		C		D
The one I haven’t seen in quite a while and you said to me
	Dsus 	    D
I want you to keep
      G
His picture in a locket that I wore around my neck
D/F#	   Em						C
The one I left beside my heart so I would not forget the greatest love
				G
And the greatest man I’ve ever known
D/F#	G		
But it’s getting time for me to head on home
D/F#		Em
She said that brown eyed boy is waiting and I don’t wanna keep him long
C									G
Heaven is calling and she said my heart is longing for the boy inside your locket
