Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hey guys, this is my first guitar tab!
Sorry if there are any mistakes, I've tried to stick as close to the original as possible.
I've made this an easy version to play, hence the need for a capo on the 4th fret.
If you prefer to play this song the more challenging way, along with the original,
transpose the piece down by -4 and remove the capo.
I hope you all enjoy this tab, feel free to leave any questions or positive/negative feedback to
help me improve!
Thanks, Anna

Lyrics/Chords:

CAPO 4 

* ONE STRUM
                *Cmaj7
Tom was born in 1942

With eyes of blue

And the doctors said
                           G
That his birth was far too fast
    Cmaj7
His heart stopped twice

But yet he survived

As he took his first breath
                    G
His mother took her last

        Cmaj7
And his father knew that he wasn't to blame

But he never quite looked at Tom the same
      G
After that
       Cmaj7
And he rarely spoke about her
            D
But when he did
                                  G
He said, "Your mother used to say this

          Cmaj7
"When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart's lost all its hope

After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
    G
The 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
Some tea and toast."


           Cmaj7
Well, they met through a friend

Who introduced them
                                                     G
And the first thing Tom said was, "Would you like to dance?"
     Cmaj7
They moved with each other

And when the music got slower
                             G
He said, "Don't let go of my hand."
               Cmaj7
He said, "It's only polite if I ask you tonight
                                         G
Would it be alright, if I could walk you home?"
              Cmaj7
That night he told her of his birth

And he said when it hurt
                                                    G
He thought about what his mother said about tea and toast


      Cmaj7
Well, two quick years went by
                  D
They were side by side
    Cmaj7                                  D
And without a plan they conceived a little child
         Cmaj7       
He said, "Woman, I love you and this you know
           D
But I only earn enough for our food and clothes
    Em
But I love you and this baby until the day that I die."
          Cmaj7
She said, "We'll take care of this little life
          D
And we'll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
    Em
And we'll be alright from some advice that I know."
          Cmaj7
She said, "I never got to meet her
         D                                         G
But if I did, I'm sure your mother would have said this


          Cmaj7
"When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart's lost all its hope

After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
    G
The 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
Some tea and toast."

        Cmaj7
Well, he took those words

And he made them proud
          D
He worked day after day

And hour after hour
        Em
So that they could buy a little house just on the outside of town
      Cmaj7
Their little girl grew up and so did they
          D
They said that they loved each other everyday
    Em
And forty years later, that brings us to now


               Cmaj7
And as they're walking down the street

Her grip loosens on his hand
            D
He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground
             Em
He hears her breathing and that's the only sound
    Cmaj7
Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd
      D                                           Em
Tears roll off his face as he says, "Don't let go, now."


         Cmaj7
And he's sitting by her bed in the hospital ward
           D                                      Em
Then their daughter walks in with a family of her own
           Cmaj7
She says, "Dad, I don't know if she can hear you now
            D                               Em
But there's one thing mum would want you to know."


          Cmaj7
"When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart's lost all its hope

After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
    G
The skies will clear my darling

now it's time for you to let go
           C                          *D
our girl wil wake you up in the morning
                        *G
with Some tea and toast."
