                Emaj7
Tom was born in 1942

With eyes of blue
                                                B  B*  B  B*  B
And the doctors said that his birth was far too fast


    Emaj7
His heart stopped twice

But yet he survived

As he took his first breathe
                     B  B*  B  B*  B
His mother took her last

        Emaj7
And his father knew that he wasn’t to blame
                                                B  B*  B  B*  B       
But he never quite looked at Tom the same after that

       E
And he rarely spoke about her
             F#
But when he did
                                 B  B*  B  B*  B
He said your mother used to say this

         Emaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope
      Emaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
B
Skies will clear my darling
             B
I’ll wake up with the one I love the most
           Emaj7                  F#*
And in the morning, I’ll make you up
                 B  B*  B  B*  B
some tea and toast



        Emaj7
When we met through a friend

Who introduced them
                                                B  B*  B  B*  B
The first thing Tom said was would you like to dance?
     Emaj7
They moved with each other and when the music got slower
                           B  B*  B  B*  B
He said don’t let go of my hand
             Emaj7
He said It’s only polite if I ask you tonight
                                            B  B*  B  B*  B
Would it be alright, if I could walk you home?
              Emaj7
That night he told her of his birth
   
And said when it hurt
   F#                                                   B  B*  B  B*  B
He thought about what his mother said about tea and toast



Emaj7
Two quick years went by
                  F#*
They were side by side
    Emaj7                                   F#*
And without a plan, they conceived a little child
        Emaj7
He said women I love you and this you know
      F#*
But I only have enough for our food and clothes
      G#min
But I love you and this baby

Until the day that I die
         Emaj7
She said we’ll take care of this little life
          F#*
And we’ll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
    G#min
And we’ll be alright from some advice that I know
         Emaj7
She said I never got to meet her
    F#*                                               B  B*  B  B*  B
But if I did, I’m sure your mother would have said this


         Emaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope
      Emaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
B
Skies will clear my darling
             B
We'll show this baby all the love we know
           Emaj7                  F#*
And in the morning, I’ll make you up
                 B  B*  B  B*  B
some tea and toast

        Emaj7
Well he took those words and he made them proud
          F#*
He worked day after day and hour after hour
        G#min
So that they could buy a little house on the outside of town
Emaj7
The little girl grew up and so did they
          F#*
They said that they loved each other everyday
    G#min
And forty years later, that brings us to now

               Emaj7
And as they’re walking down the street her grip loosens on his hand
            F#*
He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground
             G#min
He hears her breathing and that's the only sound
    Emaj7
Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd
      F#*                                          G#min
Tears rolls off his face as he says “don’t let go, now”

         Emaj7
And he’s sitting by her bed in the hospital 
      F#*                                    G#min
Their daughter walks in with a family of her own
          Emaj7
She says “dad, I don’t know if she can hear you now
            F#*                             G#min
but there’s one thing mum would want you to know”

         Emaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope
      Emaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
B
Skies will clear my darling
          B
Now it's time for you to let go
           Emaj7                  F#*
And in the morning, I’ll make you up
                   B  B*  B  B*  B
With some tea and toast
