             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 


             Cadd9                                                            
Waiting on June, I hope she comes to see me 
             G                               
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 


               G  
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 


          Cadd9 
Waiting on June, I hope that she says yes 
             G 
Waiting on June, in her faded summer dress 
            Cadd9 
Waiting on June, her daddy shook my hand 
 Em                                D 
And she lit up the moment I pulled out that silver band 
             G 
Waiting on June 

         
         G 
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 


           Cadd9    
Waiting on June, she?s putting on her makeup 
             G  
Waiting on June, she?s trying to get her hair curled 
            Cadd9 
Waiting on June, kids listen to me 
     Em                               D 
You walk on down to Sunday school I?ll be there in 15 
            G 
Waiting on June 


       G              
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 


           Cadd

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 
            G 
Waiting on June 


           G              
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

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 
            Cadd9  
Waiting on June, our mansion is so grand

Em                                   D          
Me and Jesus are standing here til? she walks through that light
