for this Teen Angster.)


C#                     F#           C#
Down by the river that flows by the coalyards..
C#                       F#            G#
stand wooden houses with shutters torn down.
C#            Fm        F#          C#
There lives a girl everybody calls Patches..
C#                      G#7       C#     A7
Patches, my darling, of old Shantytown.

D                        G                D
We planned to marry when June brought the summer..
D                       G          A
I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride.
D            F#m          G        D
Now, I don't see how that ever can happen..
D                        A7           D
my folks say, no, and my heart breaks inside.

D    F#        G          D  
Pat..ches, oh, what can I do?
G             D
I swear I'll always love you.
      G                              D           Bm
But a girl from that place will just bring me disgrace..
    D              A7          D    Bb7
so, my folks won't let me love you.

D#                    G#            D#
Each night I cry as I think of that shanty..
D#                       G#           A#
and pretty Patches there watching the door.
D#          Gm          G#            D#
She doesn't know that I can't come to see her..
D#                        A#7         D#    B7
Patches must think that I love her no more.
E        G#m      A          E
I hear a neighbor telling my father..
E         G#m          A           B
He says a girl name of Patches was found..
E             G#           A         E
floating face down in that dirty old river..
E                 G#m          A   B      E
that flows by the coalyards in old Shanty Town.

E    G#        A          E
Pat..ches, oh, what can I do?
A             E
I swear I'll always love you.
   A                         E          C#m
It may not be right but I'll join you tonight..
E            B         E
Patches, I'm comin' to you.

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
