Subject: New Song Resent-to: ~firstname.lastname@example.org To: Greg Vaughn MIME-version: 1.0 THE BOX by Randy Travis On the top shelf in the closet, in the workshop where he spent his extra time Was a dust wooden box _that I had never noticed till that time And we set on the table and carefully, we opened up the top And stared into the memory_Daddy kept inside the box THERE was a letter from mamma, when she went out to Reno To help her sister out in 62 And a flower from Hawaii, when they went on vacation It was the first time that my Daddy ever flew AND the pocket knife I gave__to him on Fathers day Years ago, I thought it had been lost We all thought his heart was made from solid rock But that was long before we found the 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 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 Cheers!!
