Capo 4th Fret

                C
Tom was born in 1942

With eyes of blue
                                                G
And the doctors said that his birth was far too fast
    C
His heart stopped twice

But yet he survived

As he took his first breathe
                    G
His mother took her last
        C
And his father knew that he wasn’t to blame
                                                G
But he never quite looked at Tom the same after that
       C
And he rarely spoke about her
              D
But when he did
                                G
He said your mother used to say this
         C
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope

After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
C
Skies will clear my darling

I’ll wake up with the one I love the most
                                   C    D
And in the morning, I’ll make you up
                   G
With some tea and toast...

           C
Whell they met through a friend

Who introduced them
                                               G
The first thing Tom said was would you like to dance?
      C
They moved with each other and when the music got slower
                           G
He said don’t let go of my hand
             C
He said It’s only polite if I ask you tonight
                                         G
Would it be alright, if I could walk you home?
              C
That night he told of of his birth

And said when it hurt
    D                                               G
He thought about what his mother said about tea and toast
C
Two quick years went by
                  D
They were side by side
    C                                       D
And without a plan, they could see a little child
        C
He said women I love you and this you know

But I only have enough for our food and clothes
      Em
But I love you and this baby

Until the day that I die...
         C
She said we’ll take care of this little life

And we’ll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
    Em
And we’ll be alright from some advice that I know
          C
She said I never got to meet her
         D                                         G
But if I did, I’m sure your mother would have said this...
         C
When the skies are looking bad my dear

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

And all the dust will go
C
Skies will clear my darling

We’ll show this baby all the love we know
                                    C   D
And in the morning, I’ll wake you up
                      G
With some tea and toast
        C
Well he took those words

And he made them proud
          C
He worked day after day

And hour after hour
   Em
So they could buy a little house on the outside of town
    C
The little girl grew up and so did they
          C
They said that they loved each other everyday
    Em
And forty years later, that brings us to now
               G
And as they’re walking down the street

Her grip loosens on his hand
            C
He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground
             Em
He hears her breathing and thats the only sound
    C
Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd
                                                   Em
Tears rolls off his face as he says “don’t let go, now”
         C
And he’s sitting by her bed in the hospital ward
          C                                      Em
And their daughter walks in with a family of her own
         C
She says “dad, I don’t know if she can hear you now
                                            G
but there’s one thing mum would want you to know”
         C
When the skies are looking bad my dear

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

And all the dust will go
C
Skies will clear my darling

Now it’s time for you to let go
         C                       C  D
I'm gonna wake you up in the morning
                  G
With some tea and toast

just a correction on the lyrics, It's 'conceived' not 'could see'
