INTRO 
 
        G7       C       
The ceremony was over, 
  D                  G 
A lad stood alone in tears. 
           G7   C 
For he had just said goodbye, 
       D                            G 
To the one he had loved through the years. 
 
 
              G7            C 
He stood all alone with his head bowed down, 
   D                      G 
As though his heart would break. 
                     G7       C 
Then the Parson came over and took his hand, 
    D                         G 
And to him these words he did say: 
 
 
                   G7          C 
When God comes and gathers his jewels, 
        D                         G 
All his treasures of diamonds and gold. 
                   G7          C 
You'll meet her up there up in heaven so fair, 
     D                         G 
When God comes and gathers his jewels. 
 
 
G   C   D   G  G7  C   D   G 
INSTRUMENTAL 
 
 
                    G7           C 
Each night when the pale moon is shining, 
        D                 G 
You can see this lad all alone. 
              G7            C 
With his eyes lifted toward heaven, 
       D                          G 
He's repeating these words he was told. 
 
 
                   G7          C 
When God comes and gathers his jewels, 
        D                         G 
All his treasures of diamonds and gold. 
                 G7       C 
I'll meet you up there up in heaven so fair, 
     D                         G 
When God comes and gathers his jewels. 
 
 
G   C   D   G   G7  C   D   G 
INSTRUMENTAL 
 
 
                   G7          C 
When God comes and gathers his jewels, 
        D                         G 
All his treasures of diamonds and gold. 
                 G7       C 
I'll meet you up there up in heaven so fair, 
     D                         G      D   G 
When God comes and gathers his jewels.
