C Tom was born in 19

With eyes of blue

G chordG And the doctors said that his birth was far too fast

C chordC His heart stopped twice

But yet he survived As he took his first breathe

G chordG His mother took her last

C chordC And his father knew that he wasn’t to blame

G chordG But he never quite looked at Tom the same after that

C chordC And he rarely spoke about her

D chordD But when he did

G chordG He said your mother used to say this

[Hook]

C chordC When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope After dawn there will be sunshine And all the dust will go

C chordC Skies will clear my darling

I’ll wake up with the one I love the most

C chordC D chordD And in the morning I’ll make you up

G chordG With some tea and toast

[Verse 2]

C chordC Whell they met through a friend

Who introduced them

G chordG The first thing Tom said was would you like to dance

C chordC They moved with each other and when the music got slower

G chordG He said don’t let go of my hand

C chordC He said It’s only polite if I ask you tonight

G chordG Would it be alright if I could walk you home

C chordC That night he told of of his birth

And said when it hurt

D chordD G chordG He thought about what his mother said about tea and toast

C chordC Two quick years went by

D chordD They were side by side

C chordC D chordD And without a plan they could see a little child

C chordC He said women I love you and this you know

But I only have enough for our food and clothes

Em chordEm But I love you and this baby

Until the day that I die

C chordC She said we’ll take care of this little life

And we’ll fall in love with her baby blue eyes

Em chordEm And we’ll be alright from some advice that I know

C chordC She said I never got to meet her

D chordD G chordG But if I did I’m sure your mother would have said this

[Hook]

C chordC When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope

C chordC After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go

C chordC Skies will clear my darling

We’ll show this baby all the love we know

C chordC D chordD And in the morning I’ll wake you up

G chordG With some tea and toast

[Verse 3]

C chordC Well he took those words

And he made them proud

C chordC He worked day after day

And hour after hour

Em chordEm So they could buy a little house on the outside of town

C chordC The little girl grew up and so did they

C chordC They said that they loved each other everyday

Em chordEm And forty years later that brings us to now

G chordG And as they’re walking down the street

Her grip loosens on his hand

C chordC He puts his arm around her side as she falls to the ground

Em chordEm He hears her breathing and thats the only sound

C chordC Her body on the floor attracts a worried crowd

Em chordEm Tears rolls off his face as he says “don’t let go now”

C chordC And he’s sitting by her bed in the hospital ward

C chordC Em chordEm And their daughter walks in with a family of her own

C chordC She says “dad I don’t know if she can hear you now

G chordG but there’s one thing mum would want you to know”

[Hook]

C chordC When the skies are looking bad my dear

And your heart has lost all it’s hope

C chordC After dawn there will be sunshine

And all the dust will go

C chordC Skies will clear my darling

Now it’s time for you to let go

C chordC C chordC D chordD I'm gonna wake you up in the morning

G chordG With some tea and toast
