PRECIOUS JEWEL The Delmore Brothers Way back in the hills when a boy I once wandered Way deep in the grave lies the gal that I love She was called from this earth a jewel for heaven More precious than diamonds more precious than gold A jewel here on earth a jewel in heaven She'll brighten the kingdom around God's great throne May the angels have peace God bless her in heaven They've broken my heart and they've left me to roam When a girl of sixteen we courted each other She promised someday to become my sweet wife I bought her the ring to wear on her finger But the angels they called her in heaven one night This world has left its wealth its trials and troubles The earth holds her treasures of diamonds and gold But they can't hold the soul of one precious jewel She's resting in peace in the heavenly fold
