Song   - Down From Dover

C/E - x2000x

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

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

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

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

(capo 1)

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

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