Artist - Dolly Parton
Song   - Down From Dover

G/B - x2000x

I know this dress I'm wearing 
        C               G            D  C  G/B  C
Doesn't hide the secret I have tried concealing 
D                                        C
When he left he promised me that he'd be back 
       G           D  C  G/B  C
By the time it was revealing 
The sun behind a cloud just casts the crawling shadow 
                   D  C  G/B  C
O'er the fields of clover 
And time is running out for me 
  C                  G               D  C  G/B  C
I wish that he would hurry down from Dover 

D                              C
He's been gone so long when he left 
             G             D  C  G/B  C
The snow was deep upon the ground 
D                                   C
And I have seen a spring and summer pass 
            G                  D  C  G/B  C
And now the leaves are turning brown 
And any time a tiny face will show itself 
                       D  C  G/B  C
Cause waiting's almost over 
But I won't have a name to give it 
C             G               D  C  G/B  C
If he doesn't hurry down from Dover 

D                                        C 
My folks weren't understanding when they found out 
     G                D  C  G/B  C
They sent me from the home place 
My daddy said if folks found out 
C                  G             D  C  G/B  C
He'd be ashamed to ever show his face 
My momma said I was a fool 
                                  D  C  G/B  C
And she did not believe it when I told her 
Momma everythings gonna be alright
C                G                D  C  G/B  C
Soon he would be coming down from Dover 

D                                C
I found a place to stay out on a farm
      G              D  C  G/B  C
Takin care of an old lady
She never asked me nothin
     C               G            D  C  G/B  C
So I never talked to her about my baby
I send a message to my mom 
                                    D  C  G/B  C
With a name an address of Mrs. Elma Grover
D                            C
And to make sure he got that information 
     G                 D  C  G/B  C
When he came down from Dover

(capo 1)

I loved him more than anything 
    C           G                  D  C  G/B  C
And I could not refuse him when he needed me 
He was the only one I'd loved 
      C          G                   D  C  G/B  C
And I just can't believe that he was using me 
He couldn't leave me here like this 
                                  D  C  G/B  C
I know it can't be so it can't be over 
D                                   C
He wouldn't make me go through this alone  
         G                D  C  G/B  C
He'll be coming down from Dover 

My body aches the time is here 
     C              G               D  C  G/B  C
It's lonely in this place where I'm lyin' 
D                                      C
Our baby has been born but something's wrong 
              G               D  C  G/B  C
It's much too still I hear no cryin' 
I guess in some strange way she knew 
                                    D  C  G/B  C
She'd never have a father's arms to hold her 
D                                C
And dying was her way of telling me 
          G                D  C  G/B  C
He wasn't coming down from Dover
