 Intro:      G


G           Em
 Back in '41, you met a brown-eyed boy 
C                    G
 Who called you pretty
G                  Em                                C
 He'd walk everyday, couple miles out of his way to hold your hand 
                    G
 And keep you company

      Em               C               G
 Your mama said don't call it love at 14
      Am               C           D
 But sittin' on that front porch swing
 

                  G
 He gave you his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck 
          Em
 Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget 
      C                             G
 The way it felt when he held your hand
           G
 And you swore that you would never take it off
         Em
 And the butterflies you felt said it all
  C                                       G
 You were falling with the boy inside your locket
 

G                  Em
 Back in '43, the brown-eyed boy went overseas 
      C                               G 
 And had to leave town for a little while
G                       Em    
 He swore he'd marry you as soon as the war was through
  C                G
 You would be his wife

   Em             C        G
 Standing in the pouring rain
       Am          C                 D
 You cried as you watched him ride away
           C
 But everyday
 

              G
 You had his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck
          Em
 Left it right beside your heart so you would not forget
      C                           G
 The way his kiss tasted on your lips
           G
 And everyday felt like a lifetime with him gone
           Em
 And you prayed that God would bring him safely home
             C                                     G
 'Cause you made a promise to the boy inside your locket

   
     Em        C                  G                                 D
 Oh, 60 years you two had together and he's been gone for a couple now
          Em                          C
 And it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember
G                                D
 And I've been writing all your memories down 
         C                  G
 And I stopped by today to read a couple pages
Em                        G
 Grandma, you sure look pretty
           C          G        Am                               C
 And you smile that smile, the one I haven't seen in quite a while
          D
 And you said to me, I want you to keep 


      G
 His picture in a locket that I wore around my neck
            Em
 The one I left beside my heart so I would not forget
       C                                            G
 The greatest love and the greatest man I've ever known
           G
 But it's gettin' time for me to head on home 
                  Em
 She said, that brown-eyed boy is waiting and I don't want to keep him long
  C                                                G
 Heaven is calling, and she said, my heart is longing
                          G       C      G
 For the boy inside your locket 

 
 End on G
