"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
