Emaj7Tom was born in 1942
With eyes of blue
B B* B B* BAnd the doctors said that his birth was far too fast
Emaj7His heart stopped twice
But yet he survived As he took his first breathe
B B* B B* BHis mother took her last
Emaj7And his father knew that he wasn’t to blame
B B* B B* B But he never quite looked at Tom the same after that
EAnd he rarely spoke about her
F#But when he did
B B* B B* BHe said your mother used to say this
Emaj7When the skies are looking bad my dear
And your heart has lost all it’s hope
Emaj7After dawn there will be sunshine
And all the dust will go
BSkies will clear my darling
BI’ll wake up with the one I love the most
Emaj7 F#*And in the morning, I’ll make you up
B B* B B* Bsome tea and toast
Emaj7When we met through a friend
Who introduced them
B B* B B* BThe first thing Tom said was would you like to dance?
Emaj7They moved with each other and when the music got slower
B B* B B* BHe said don’t let go of my hand
Emaj7He said It’s only polite if I ask you tonight
B B* B B* BWould it be alright, if I could walk you home?
Emaj7That night he told her of his birth
And said when it hurt
F# B B* B B* BHe thought about what his mother said about tea and toast
Emaj7Two quick years went by
F#*They were side by side
Emaj7 F#*And without a plan, they conceived a little child
Emaj7He said women I love you and this you know
F#*But I only have enough for our food and clothes
G#min But I love you and this baby Until the day that I die
Emaj7She said we’ll take care of this little life
F#*And we’ll fall in love with her baby blue eyes
G#min And we’ll be alright from some advice that I know
Emaj7She said I never got to meet her
F#* B B* B B* BBut if I did, I’m sure your mother would have said this
Emaj7When the skies are looking bad my dear
And your heart has lost all it’s hope
Emaj7After dawn there will be sunshine
And all the dust will go
BSkies will clear my darling
BWe'll show this baby all the love we know
Emaj7 F#*And in the morning, I’ll make you up
B B* B B* Bsome tea and toast
Emaj7Well he took those words and he made them proud
F#*He worked day after day and hour after hour
G#min So that they could buy a little house on the outside of town
Emaj7The little girl grew up and so did they
F#*They said that they loved each other everyday
G#min And forty years later, that brings us to now
Emaj7And as they’re walking down the street her grip loosens on his hand
F#*He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground
G#min He hears her breathing and that's the only sound
Emaj7Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd
F#* G#minTears rolls off his face as he says “don’t let go, now”
Emaj7And he’s sitting by her bed in the hospital
F#* G#minTheir daughter walks in with a family of her own
Emaj7She says “dad, I don’t know if she can hear you now
F#* G#minbut there’s one thing mum would want you to know”
Emaj7When the skies are looking bad my dear
And your heart has lost all it’s hope
Emaj7After dawn there will be sunshine
And all the dust will go
BSkies will clear my darling
BNow it's time for you to let go
Emaj7 F#*And in the morning, I’ll make you up
B B* B B* BWith some tea and toast
