                B
Tom was born in 1942 with eyes of blue
                                                 B/A#
And the doctors said that his birth was far too fast
Emaj7
His heart stopped twice, But yet he survived
                                                   B/A#
As he took his first breathe, His mother took her last
Emaj7
And his father knew that he wasn't to blame
                                                  B/A#
But he never quite looked at Tom the same after that 

Emaj7
And he rarely spoke about her 
             F#maj7
But when he did
                                 B/A#
He said your mother used to say this

Emaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear
                                     B
And your heart has lost all it's hope
Emaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine 
                        B
And all the dust will go
B/A#
Skies will clear my darling, I'll wake up with the one I love the most
Emaj7                             F#maj7
And in the morning, I'll make you up
                B/A#
Some tea and toast

Emaj7
When we met through a friend who introduced them
                                                 B/A#
The first thing Tom said was would you like to dance?
Emaj7
They moved with each other and when the music got slower
                             B/A#
He said don't let go of my hand
Emaj7
He said It's only polite if I ask you tonight
                                            B/A#
Would it be alright, if I could walk you home?
Emaj7
That night he told of his birth and said when it hurt
F#maj7                                                 B/A#                   
He thought about what his mother said about tea and toast

Emaj7
Two quick years went by
                    F#maj7
They were side by side
Emaj7                                          F#maj7
And without a plan, they conceived a little child
Emaj7                                                 
He said women I love you and this you know
F#maj7
But I only have enough for our food and clothes
G#maj7
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#maj7
And we'll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
G#maj7
And we'll be alright from some advice that I know

E                                           F#
She said I never got to meet her But if I did,
                                        B/A#                
I'm sure your mother would have said this

Emaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear
                                     B
And your heart has lost all it's hope
Emaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine 
                        B
And all the dust will go
B/A#
Skies will clear my darling, I'll wake up with the one I love the most
Emaj7                             F#maj7
And in the morning, I'll make you up
                B/A#
Some tea and toast

Emaj7
Well he took those words and he made them proud
F#maj7
He worked day after day and hour after hour
G#maj7
So that they could buy a little house on the outside of town
Emaj7
The little girl grew up and so did they
F#maj7
They said that they loved each other everyday
G#maj7
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#maj7
He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground
G#maj7
He hears her breathing and that’s the only sound
Emaj7
Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd 
F#maj7                                              G#maj7
Tears rolls off his face as he says "don't let go, now"

Emaj7
And he's sitting by her bed in the hospital ward
F#maj7                                        G#maj7
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#maj7                                         G#maj7
but there's one thing mum would want you to know"

Emaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear
                                     B
And your heart has lost all it's hope
Emaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine 
                        B
And all the dust will go
B/A#
Skies will clear my darling, I'll wake up with the one I love the most
Emaj7                             F#maj7
And in the morning, I'll make you up
                B/A#
Some tea and toast

I think your maj7s might all be 5s instead. Instead of x79897, it might be x7990x, and all the other barchords should be that pattern moved up and down. I might be wrong, but I tried to confirm with a few videos, and it seems right.

Otherwise a great tab though, really!
