    Lyrics

    (Roy Acuff)

    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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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 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.
