He’d 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 don’t 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

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

He swore he’d 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

And every day felt like a lifetime with him gone and you pray that god would bring him safely home

Cuz you made a promise to the boy inside your locket

Oh 60 years you 2 had together he’s been gone for a couple now

And it breaks my heart to see you struggle to remember 
G			   D
I’ve 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 haven’t seen in quite a while and you said to me
	Dsus4 	    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 I’ve ever known
D/F#	G		
But it’s getting time for me to head on home
D/F#		Em
She said that brown eyed boy is waiting and I don’t wanna keep him long
C									G
Heaven is calling and she said my heart is longing for the boy inside your locket
