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
