Intro: D G x2
[D] Back in '41 [Bm]you met a brown eyed boy
[G] Who called you prett[D]y
He'd walk everyday [Bm]a couple miles out of his way to h[G]old your hand
And keep you compan[D]y
Your [Bm]mama said don't c[G]all it love at 1[D]4
But s[G]itting on that front porch sw[A]ing
He gave you his p[D]icture in a locket that you wore around your neck
Left it r[Bm]ight beside your heart so you would not forget
The w[G]ay it felt when he held your h[D]and
And you swore that you would never take it off
And the [Bm]butterflies you felt said it all
Y[G]ou were falling with the boy inside your lock[D]et
[D] Back in '43 your br[Bm]own eyed boy went over seas
And h[G]ad to leave town for a little wh[D]ile
He swore he'd marry you [Bm]as soon as the war was through
Y[G]ou would be his w[D]ife
St[Bm]anding in the p[G]ouring ra[D]in
You cr[G]ied as you watched him ride aw[A]ay
But everyd[Bm]ay[A]
You had his p[D]icture in a locket that you wore around your neck
Left it r[Bm]ight beside your heart so you would not forget
The w[G]ay his kiss tasted on your l[D]ips
And everyday felt like a lifetime with him gone
And you pr[Bm]ayed that God would bring him safely home
'Cause you m[G]ade a promise to the boy inside your l[D]ocket
Oh, [Bm]60 years y[G]ou two had together and h[D]e's been gone for a couple n[A]ow
And it br[Bm]eaks my heart to see you str[G]uggle to remember
A[D]nd I've been writing all your m[A]emories down
And I stopp[G]ed by today to r[D]ead a couple pages
Gr[Bm]andma, you sure look prett[D]y
And you sm[G]ile that sm[D]ile, the [G]one I haven't se[D]en in quite a wh[G]ile
And you s[A]aid to me, I want you to keep
His p[D]icture in a locket that I wore around my neck
The one I l[Bm]eft beside my heart so I would not forget
The gr[G]eatest love and the greatest man I've ever kn[D]own
But it's getting time for me to head on home
She said, that br[Bm]own eyed boy is waiting and I don't wanna keep him long
H[G]eaven is calling, and she said, my heart is longing
For the boy inside your l[D]ocket [G] [D] [G]
End on D
