The Box
Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Buck A. Moore and Randy Bruce Traywick

G
On the top shelf in the closet
C D7 G
In the workshop where he spent his extra time
C D7 G
Was a dusty wooden box I had never noticed till that night
C G
Then we set it on the table and carefully we opened up the top
D7 G
And stared into the memory daddy kept inside the box

C
There was a letter from momma
G
When she went out to Reno to help her sister out in 62
D7
And a flower from Hawaii when they went on vacation
G
It was the first time that my daddy ever flew

C
And the pocket knife I gave to him on Fathers day
G
Years ago I thought it had been lost
D7
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
G C
But that was long before we found the box

G C D7 G
I guess we always knew it but I love you was hard for him to say
C D7 G
Some men show it easy and some just never seem to find the way
C G
But that night I began to see the softer side of someone I had lost
D7 G
I saw the love he kept inside the first time that we opened up the box

C
There was a picture that was taken
G
When he and mom were dating standing by his 1944
D7
And the faded leather Bible he got when he was baptized
G
I guess no one understood him like the Lord

C
And the poem that he had written all about his wife and children
G
The tender words he wrote were quite a shock
D7
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
G
But that was long before we found the box

D7
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
G
But that was long before we found the box
