Patches Recorded by Dickey Lee Written by Barry Mann and Larry Kolber [3/4 time]
C F C Down by the river that flows by the coal yards F G7 Stand wooden houses with shutters torn down C F C There lives a girl everybody calls Patches G7 C Patches my darling of old Shantytown
F C We planned to marry when June brought the summer F G7 I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride C F C Now I don't see how that ever can happen G7 C My folks say no and my heart breaks inside
G7 F C Patches oh what can I do I swear I'll always love you F C But a girl from that place would just bring me disgrace G7 C So my folks won't let me love you
F C Each night I cry as I think of that shanty F G7 And pretty Patches there watching the door C F C She doesn't know that I can't come to see her G7 C Patches must think that I love her no more
F C I hear a neighbor telling my father F G7 He says a girl name of Patches was found C F C Floating face down in that dirty old river G7 C That flows by the coal yards in old Shantytown
G7 F C Patches oh what can I do I swear I'll always love you F C It may not be right but I'll join you tonight G7 C Patches I'm coming to you
