Verse 1
G Em C GBack in 41 you met a brown eyed boy who called you pretty
G Em C GHe’d walk every day couple miles out of his way to hold your hand and keep you company
Em C G C G DYour mama said don’t call it love at 14 but sitting on that front porch swing
(Chorus)
GHe gave you his picture in a locket that you wore around your neck
D/F# Em D/F# C GLeft it right beside your heart so you would not forget the way it felt when he held your hand
D/F# EmAnd 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 GBack 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 DStanding 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 GLeft 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 GCuz you made a promise to the boy inside your locket
Em C G DOh 60 years you 2 had together he’s been gone for a couple now
Em CAnd it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember
G DI’ve been writing all your memories down
C GAnd I stop by today to read a couple pages
Em G C GGrandma you sure look pretty and you smile that smile
C G C DThe one I haven’t seen in quite a while and you said to me
Dsus DI want you to keep
GHis picture in a locket that I wore around my neck
D/F# Em CThe one I left beside my heart so I would not forget the greatest love
GAnd the greatest man I’ve ever known
D/F# G But it’s getting time for me to head on home
D/F# EmShe said that brown eyed boy is waiting and I don’t wanna keep him long
C GHeaven is calling and she said my heart is longing for the boy inside your locket
