******************************************************************************************

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
          C
And your heart has lost all it's hope
   C
After dawn there will be sunshine
    G
And all the dust will go
  G
Skies will clear my darling
   G
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
When we met through a friend
      C
Who introduced them
      C                                        G
The first thing Tom said was would you like to dance?
  C                                     C
They moved with each other and when the music got slower
                            G
He said don't let go of my hand
 C                                  C        
He said It's only polite if I ask you tonight
   C                                        G
Would it be alright, if I could walk you home?
 C                                  
That night he told of of his birth
C
And said when it hurt
C                                                    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 conceived a little child
         C                      
He said women I love you and this you know
       C
But I only have enough for our food and clothes
        C                    D
But I love you and this baby
                     G
Until the day that I die
          C
She said we'll take care of this little life
           C
And we'll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
            C         
And we'll be alright 
D                       G
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
                      G
And all the dust will go
 G
Skies will clear my darling

We'll show this baby all the love we know
   C                                 D
And in the morning, I'll make you up
                    G
With some tea and toast"


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


  C
And as they're walking down the street
 C
Her grip loosens on his hand
  C
He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground
    C                                       G
He hears her breathing and that's the only sound
 C
Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd
     C                                             G
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                                            G
Their daughter walks in with a family of her own
             C
She says "dad, I don't know if she can hear you now
C                                            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

After dawn there will be sunshine
    G
And all the dust will go
   G
Skies will clear my darling
  G
Now it's time for you to let go
        C                      D                    G
In the morning i'll wake you up with some tea and toast
