G                             C            G
Way back in the hills, when a boy, I once wandered
                                A            D
Buried deep in her grave lies a girl that I love
        G                          C         G
She was called from this earth, a jewel for heaven
                                  G            G
More precious than diamonds more precious than gold.



G                          C            D
When a girl of sixteen, we courted each other
                           A              D
She promised someday to be-come my sweet wife
             G            C           G
I bought her the ring to wear on her finger
                                  D           G
But the angels they called her to heaven one night.



A jewel here on earth, a jewel up in heaven
She'll brighten the kingdom around God's great throne
May the angels have peace, God bless her in heaven
They've broken my heart and they left me to roam.


This world has it wealth, its' trials and troubles
Mother earth holds her treasures of diamonds and gold
But it can't hold the soul of one precious jewel
She's resting in peace with the heavenly fold.

G                          C                G
May the angels have peace, God bless her in heaven
                                  D         C
They've broken my heart and they left me to roam.
