[Verse 1]
                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

[Hook]
         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

[Verse 2]
        Emaj7
When they 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

[Hook]
         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

[Verse 3]
        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

[Hook]
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
