Capo on 7th fret
- G 

She was from North Louisiana in the town of Mer Rouge 
                                    C                                   G  
I fell in love in a week or two it didn?t take long to love a girl like that 
We were barely ten in the cotton fields playing horseshoe with the colored kids 
   C                                        G  
I tried to kiss her she grabbed a baseball bat 

Waiting on June, I hope she comes to see me 
Waiting on June, I can't take this feeling 
             Cadd9                                          Em  
Waiting on June, I pray to God she?ll love me one of these days 
           D                     G   
I hope I find my way waiting on June 

I went off in 42? to fight those boys and pay my dues 
     C                               G 
Her wallet picture kept my spirits high 
Charley Boy died in my arms, he saw Jesus I saw blood 
    C                                  G 
It soaked her wallet picture that cold night 

   D                                   Cadd9            G 
I told my best friend Charley I would kiss his girl goodbye 
             D                          Cadd9          G 
He made me promise I?d go home and make Miss June my wife 
                 D                Cadd9              G     
Shaking like a drunk old fool I hopped off of that plane 
       Em          D            Cadd9                            
And I ran home to ask her in the rain 

Waiting on June, I hope that she says yes 
Waiting on June, in her faded summer dress 
Waiting on June, her daddy shook my hand 
 Em                                D 
And she lit up the moment I pulled out that silver band 
Waiting on June 

Well we married at the methodist church 
                                                C                                 G 
Found a big white cow and a piece of dirt with pecan trees to build our homestead on 
Jolynn Becky then Donna then Shelby, our tiny house was a sanctuary 
C                                     G 
Laughter filled those rooms all day long 

Waiting on June, she?s putting on her makeup 
Waiting on June, she?s trying to get her hair curled 
Waiting on June, kids listen to me 
     Em                               D 
You walk on down to Sunday school I?ll be there in 15 
Waiting on June 

The time flew by like they said it would 
The kids grew fast and the farm did good 
       Cadd9                   G 
Mrs. Bertha made our supper everyday 
At noon that silver bell would ring 
                                      Cadd9                      G 
We?d all say grace and dig on in we always ate together in those days 

    D                                  Cadd9             G 
Oh one by one those kids went off and found a love their own 
          D                                   Cadd9                 G 
There?s nothing like the joy I knew when they brought their babies home 
          D                                      Cadd9              G 
We?d play all day in the cotton fields with the dogs I raised up right 
    Em                  D            Cadd9 
And end in grandma?s kitchen every night 

Waiting on June, honey don't burn the bacon 
Waiting on June, our bellies are a? achin 
Waiting on June, she turns that fork so slow 
 Em                                        D  
And we all had to sit there til the last bite was no more 
Waiting on June 

We were slower than we used to be the nursing home told June and me 
               Cadd9                   G 
That we?d have separate rooms side by side 
   D                                   cadd9               G 
Oh what I?d give for one more night of sleeping with my wife 
       D                                Cadd9          G 
Since 45? I've touched her skin in the middle of the night 
      D                             Cadd9           G 
I'm lying in this single bed until they cut the lights 
      Em                  D             Cadd9 
That?s when she?ll sneak in and I?ll be fine 

Waiting on June so we can kiss goodnight 
Waiting on June I?ll hold her hand so tight 
Waiting on June I?ll love her til? I die 
           D                                 Cadd9 
It's bittersweet when love grows old and you really miss your wife 
Waiting on June 

Well they buried me last Tuesday morn 

The good lord came and he took me home 
    Cadd9                           G 
I closed my eyes and quickly went away 
         Em            D          Cadd9 
But the angels let me see her everyday 
Waiting on June, our mansion is so grand 
Waiting on June, footprints in the sand 
Waiting on June, that?s the story of my life 
Em                                   D          
Me and Jesus are standing here til? she walks through that light
