Down From Dover  Dolly Parton

[D]I know this dress I'm wearing
Doesn't [C]hide the secret [G]I have tried [D]con[C]cea[G/B]ling [C]
[D]When he left he promised me that he'd be [C]back
By the [G]time it was [D]rev[C]eal[G/B]ing  [C]
[G]The sun behind a cloud just casts the crawling shadow
O'er the fields of [D]clo[C]ver[G/B]     [C]
[D]And time is running out for me
I [C]wish that he would [G]hurry down from [D]Dov[C]er [G/B]     [C]

[D]He's been gone so long when he [C]left
The snow was [G]deep upon the [D]gro[C]und[G/B]     [C]
[D]And I have seen a spring and summer [C]pass
And now the [G]leaves are turning [D]bro[C]wn [G/B]     [C]
[G]And any time a tiny face will show itself
Cause waiting's almost [D]ove[C]r  [G/B]     [C]
[D]But I won't have a name to give it
[C]If he doesn't [G]hurry down from [D]Dov[C]er [G/B]     [C]

[D]My folks weren't understanding when they [C]found out
They [G]sent me from the [D]hom[C]e p[G/B]lace [C]
[D]My daddy said if folks found out
[C]He'd be ashamed to [G]ever show his [D]fac[C]e  [G/B]     [C]
[G]My momma said I was a fool
And she did not believe it when I [D]tol[C]d h[G/B]er   [C]
[D]Momma everythings gonna be alright
[C]Soon he would be [G]coming down from [D]Dov[C]er [G/B]     [C]
[D]I found a place to stay out on a [C]farm
Takin [G]care of an old [D]lad[C]y  [G/B]     [C]
[D]She never asked me nothin
So I [C]never talked to [G]her about my [D]bab[C]y  [G/B]     [C]
[G]I send a message to my mom
With a name an address of Mrs. Elma [D]Gro[C]ver[G/B]     [C]
[D]And to make sure he got that [C]information
When [G]he came down from [D]Dov[C]er [G/B]     [C]
(capo 1)

[D]I loved him more than anything
And [C]I could not [G]refuse him when he [D]nee[C]ded[G/B] me  [C]
[D]He was the only one I'd loved
And I [C]just can't [G]believe that he was [D]usi[C]ng [G/B]me   [C]
[G]He couldn't leave me here like this
I know it can't be so it can't be [D]ove[C]r  [G/B]     [C]
[D]He wouldn't make me go through this [C]alone
He'll be [G]coming down from [D]Dov[C]er [G/B]     [C]

[D]My body aches the time is here
It's [C]lonely in this [G]place where I'm [D]lyi[C]n' [G/B]     [C]
[D]Our baby has been born but something's [C]wrong
It's much too [G]still I hear no [D]cry[C]in'[G/B]     [C]
[G]I guess in some strange way she knew
She'd never have a father's arms to [D]hol[C]d h[G/B]er   [C]
[D]And dying was her way of telling [C]me
He wasn't [G]coming down from [D]Dov[C]er [G/B]     [C]
