When God Comes and Gathers His Jewels
by Hank Williams  3/4 time
G                C
The ceremony was over
  D7                 G
A lad stood alone in tears
For he had just said goodbye
       D7                           G
To the one he had loved through the years
He stood all alone with his head bowed down
   D7                     G
As though his heart would break
Then the Parson came over and took his hand
       D7                     G
And to him these words he did say
When God comes and gathers his jewels
    D7                            G
All his treasures of diamonds and gold
You'll meet her up there up in heaven so fair
     D7                        G
When God comes and gathers his jewels
Each night when the pale moon is shining
    D7                   G
You can see this lad all alone
With his eyes lifted toward heaven
     D7                           G
He's repeating these words he was told
repeat #3
