Gold Heart Locket chords – Jeff Black

 "Gold Heart Locket"
Usually with a banjo, but when he plays it live, there's often a full band accompaniment. Beautiful song.
D ,  A ,  Em ,  G ,  D D 
All night long I've been riding riding
A Em 
I should have been there by now
But these old county roads
Got a lot of deep holes
G D 
And the rain keeps pouring down
D   
The bridge is washed out and the rising rising
A Em 
Waters of the river rush by
And I'm up to my fenders in mud
And to my witness above
D 
I'm really stuck this time
G 
I've got a gold heart locket on a silver chain
D 
Clinched tight in my fist in the pouring rain
Em 
And the only road back home again Is all but washed away
G 
I'm going to cross that river tonight
D 
No matter what it takes 
A 
Although I might die trying
F#m Em 
My true love will remain
G D A Em G D 
In a gold heart locket on a silver chain
Open it up and she's lovely lovely
Eyes of hazel green
But I close it up fast 
Because the rain gets past
And lays a tear down on her cheek
I promised her once that I would never ever
Break her heart again
So lord take me there in a silent prayer
And her locket in my hand
Em 
The last thing I remember 
D 
I was fearing for my life
Em 
She was calling out my name 
G 
From over on the other side
G 
I reached out to hold her
D 
But the break was just too strong
A 
Now the silence just gets colder
G 
As the river rages on
D 
All night long I've been riding riding
A Em 
I should have been there by now
But these old county roads
Got a lot of deep holes
G D 
And the rain keeps pouring down
D   
The bridge is washed out and the rising rising
A Em 
Waters of the river rush by
And I'm up to my fenders in mud
And to my witness above
D 
I'm really stuck this time
G 
I've got a gold heart locket on a silver chain
D 
Clinched tight in my fist in the pouring rain
Em 
And the only road back home again Is all but washed away
G 
I'm going to cross that river tonight
D 
No matter what it takes 
A 
Although I might die trying
F#m Em 
My true love will remain
G D A Em G D 
In a gold heart locket on a silver chain
