The Box

Song Author Buck A. Moore og Randy Bruce Traywick Performer: Randy Travis Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]On the top shelf in the closet
In [C]the workshop where [D7]he spent his extra [G]time
Was a dusty wooden box [C]I had never [D7]noticed till that [G]night
Then we [C]set it on the table and carefully we opened up the [G]top  
And [D7]stared into the memory daddy kept inside the [G]box  

There was a [C]letter from momma
When she went out to Reno to help her sister out in 6[G]2  
And a [D7]flower from Hawaii when they went on vacation
It was the first time that my daddy ever [G]flew

And the [C]pocket knife I gave to him on Fathers day
Years ago I thought it had been [G]lost
We all [D7]thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the [G]box [C]    

[G]I guess we always knew it but [C]I love you was [D7]hard for him to [G]say  
Some men show it easy and [C]some just never [D7]seem to find the [G]way  
But [C]that night I began to see the softer side of someone I had [G]lost
I [D7]saw the love he kept inside the first time that we opened up the [G]box  

There was a [C]picture that was taken
When he and mom were dating standing by his 194[G]4  
And the [D7]faded leather Bible he got when he was baptized
I guess no one understood him like the [G]Lord

And the [C]poem that he had written all about his wife and children
The tender words he wrote were quite a [G]shock
We all [D7]thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the [G]box  

We all [D7]thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the [G]box  


On the top shelf in the closet
In the workshop where he spent his extra time
Was a dusty wooden box I had never noticed till that night
Then we set it on the table and carefully we opened up the top
And stared into the memory daddy kept inside the box

There was a letter from momma
When she went out to Reno to help her sister out in 62
And a flower from Hawaii when they went on vacation
It was the first time that my daddy ever flew

And the pocket knife I gave to him on Fathers day
Years ago I thought it had been lost
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box

I guess we always knew it but I love you was hard for him to say
Some men show it easy and some just never seem to find the way
But that night I began to see the softer side of someone I had lost
I saw the love he kept inside the first time that we opened up the box

There was a picture that was taken
When he and mom were dating standing by his 1944
And the faded leather Bible he got when he was baptized
I guess no one understood him like the Lord

And the poem that he had written all about his wife and children
The tender words he wrote were quite a shock
We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box

We all thought his heart was made of solid rock
But that was long before we found the box
