Precious Jewel Lyrics

Artist: Hank Locklin
Album: A Tribute to Roy Acuff King of Country Music

Way back in the hills when a boy I once wandered
There beneath the grave lies a girl that I love
She was called from this earth a jewel from heaven
More precious than diamonds more precious than gold
A jewel here on earth and a jewel in heaven
She will brighten the kingdom around God's great throne
Maybe angels have peace God bless her in heaven
They've broken my heart and they've left me to roam
[ piano ]
When she was sixteen we courted each other
She promised someday to become my sweet wife
I bought her the ring to wear on her finger
The angels they called her to heaven one night
A jewel here on earth...
