UNWED FATHERS

John Prine

 GCGC
          In an Appalachian, Greyhound station 
 GDG
          She sits there waiting, in a family way
 CGC
          'Goodbye brother, Tell Mom I love her' 
 GDG
          'Tell all the others, I'll write someday'
Chorus:
 GCG
          From an teenage lover, to an unwed mother
 D
          kept undercovers, like some bad dream
 GCGC
          While unwed fathers, they can't be bothered 
 GDG
          They run like water, through a mountain stream
 GCGC
          In a cold and grey town, a nurse say's 'Lay down' 
 GDG
          'This ain't no playground, and this ain't home'
 CGC
          Someones children, out having children 
 GDG
          in a grey stone building, all al-one
(Chorus)
 GCGC
          Some where else bound, Smokey Mountain Greyhound 
 GDG
          She bows her head down, humming lullabys
 CGC
          'Your daddy never, meant to hurt you ever' 
 GDG
          'he just don't live here, but you've got his eyes'
(Chorus)
 --
 -Paul McGinness
