Precious Jewel
Recorded by Hank Locklin 
Written by Roy Acuff 
[3/4 time]

Way back in the hills
     F              C
As a boy I was once wandered
Buried deep in her grave
         D7          G7
Lies the girl that I love

She was called from this earth
  F         C
A jewel for Heaven
More precious than diamonds
     G7            C
More precious than gold
A jewel here on earth
F            C
And jewel in Heaven
She'll brighten the kingdom
D7                G7
Around God's great throne

May the angels have peace
    F            C
God bless her in Heaven
They've broken my heart
            G7         C
And they've left me to roam
When she was sixteen
   F            C
We courted each other
She promised someday
   D7              G7
To become my sweet wife

I bought her a ring
   F           C
To wear on her finger

The angels they called her
   G7         C
To heaven one night
repeat #2
This world has it's wealth
         F          C
And it's trials and troubles
Mother earth holds her treasures
   D7           G7
Of diamonds and gold

But she can't hold the soul
   F            C
Of one precious jewel

She's resting in peace
        G7       C
In that Heavenly home
