Your Little Band Of Gold Written and Recorded by Hank Snow
G C On the raging field of battle in a dugout dark and cold D7 G Lies a soldier boy in tears and wracked with pain C We gathered close beside him as our Captain said a prayer D7 G We knew his chance to live was all in vain
B7 C He opened up his big blue eyes and smiled through flowing tears A7 D7 These last few words then to our Captain told G C In this pocket by my heart sir is a message send it please D7 G And with it send this little band of gold
C G I promised you sweetheart someday I'd meet you A7 D7 Your tender form close to my heart I'd fold G C But I'll never keep that promise I have trod the last long mile D7 G But I'm sending you your little band of gold
C We laid him down in silence t'was so hard to leave him there D7 G Our hearts were heavy as we walked away C But we know tonight in Heaven there's another soldier boy D7 G Who'll be marked a hero on that judgment day
B7 C We wrote his dear old mother sent his love to folks back home A7 D7 And told her God had called him to the fold G C And the message to his darling we so carefully mailed away D7 G With his picture and her little band of gold
