UNWED FATHERS  John Prine

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