The Locket
Lauren Alaina
Verse 1
G 	     Em 	  	  	          C 	  	  	  	 G
Back in 41 you met a brown eyed boy who called you pretty
G 	   	         Em 	  	  	  	 C 	  	  	  	  	 G
Heíd 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 donít 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 heíd 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 heís been gone for a couple now 
 	 Em 	  	  	    C
And it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember 
G 	  	  	    D
Iíve 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 havenít 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 Iíve ever known
D/F# 	 G 	  	 
But itís getting time for me to head on home
D/F# 	  	 Em
She said that brown eyed boy is waiting and I donít wanna keep him long
C 	  	  	  	  	  	  	  	  	 G
Heaven is calling and she said my heart is longing for the boy inside your locket

God Bless, y'all! ~G
