Capo 4

                Cmaj7
Tom was born in 1942

With eyes of blue
                                                G  G*  G  G*  G
And the doctors said that his birth was far too fast


    Cmaj7
His heart stopped twice

But yet he survived

As he took his first breathe
                     G  G*  G  G*  G
His mother took her last

        Cmaj7
And his father knew that he wasnít to blame
                                                G  G*  G  G*  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  G*  G  G*  G
He said your mother used to say this

         Cmaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all itís hope
      Cmaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
G
Skies will clear my darling
             G
Iíll wake up with the one I love the most
           Cmaj7                  D*
And in the morning, Iíll make you up
                 G  G*  G  G*  G
some tea and toast



        Cmaj7
When we met through a friend

Who introduced them
                                                G  G*  G  G*  G
The first thing Tom said was would you like to dance?
     Cmaj7
They moved with each other and when the music got slower
                           G  G*  G  G*  G
He said donít let go of my hand
             Cmaj7
He said Itís only polite if I ask you tonight
                                            G  G*  G  G*  G
Would it be alright, if I could walk you home?
              Cmaj7
That night he told her of his birth
   
And said when it hurt
   D                                                   G  G*  G  G*  G
He thought about what his mother said about tea and toast



Cmaj7
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 women I love you and this you know
      D*
But I only have enough for our food and clothes
      Em
But I love you and this baby

Until the day that I die
         Cmaj7
She said weíll take care of this little life
          D*
And weíll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
    Em
And weíll be alright from some advice that I know
         Cmaj7
She said I never got to meet her
    D*                                               G  G*  G  G*  G
But if I did, Iím sure your mother would have said this


         Cmaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all itís hope
      Cmaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
G
Skies will clear my darling
             G
We'll show this baby all the love we know
           Cmaj7                  D*
And in the morning, Iíll make you up
                 G  G*  G  G*  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 on the outside of town
Cmaj7
The 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 theyíre 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 rolls off his face as he says ďdonít let go, nowĒ

         Cmaj7
And heís sitting by her bed in the hospital 
      D*                                    Em
Their daughter walks in with a family of her own
          Cmaj7
She says ďdad, I donít know if she can hear you now
            D*                             Em
but thereís one thing mum would want you to knowĒ

         Cmaj7
When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all itís hope
      Cmaj7
After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go
G
Skies will clear my darling
          G
Now it's time for you to let go
           Cmaj7                  D*
And in the morning, Iíll make you up
                   G  G*  G  G*  G
With some tea and toast
