The Box  Randy Travis

The Box
By Randy Travis
On the [A]top shelf in the closet, in the [D]workshop where he [E]spent his extra [A]time
Was a [A]dusty wooden box [D]I had never [E]noticed till that [A]time
Then we [D]set it on the table and carefully we opened up the [A]top
And [E]stared into the memory, Daddy kept inside the [A]box
Chorus 1:
There was a [D]letter from Mamma, when she went out to Reno to help her sister out in 6[A]2
And a [E]flower from Hawaii, when they went on vacation
It was the first time that my Daddy ever [A]flew
And the [D]pocket knife I gave to him on Fathers day
Years ago, I thought it had been [A]lost
We all [E]thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the [A]box
I guess we always knew it_but "I love you" was hard for him to say
Some men show it easy and some just never seem to find the way
BUT that night I began__to see the softer side of some I had lost
I saw the love he kept inside the first time_we opened up the box
Chorus 2:
There was a picture that was taken, when he and Mom were dating standing by his 1944
And the faded leather Bible, he got when he was baptised
I guess no one understood him like the Lord
And the poem that he had written, about his wife and children
The tender words he spoke were quite a shock
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box
Yes that was long before we found the box
