Patches:Dickey Lee.
#6 in 1962.

***In the original there are 4 key changes.
I marked them as capo/barre 1st fret, etc.***

#1.(Capo/barre 1st fret. Key C#)
C           Em         F            C
Down by the river that flows by the coal yards,
C            Em          F             G7
stand wooden houses with shutters torn down. 
C             E         F          C
There lives a girl everybody calls Patches. 
C          Em         F   G7     C
Patches my darling of old Shanty town.

#2. (Capo/barre 2nd fret. Key D)
C             Em         F                C
We planned to marry when June brought the summer.
C          Em           F          G7
I couldn't wait to make Patches my bride.
C           E            F        C
Now I don't see how that ever can happen..
C            Em         F     G7       C
My folks say no, and my heart breaks inside.

C    E         F          C     F          C
Pat..ches, 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.

#3. (Capo/barre 3rd fret. Key D#)
C            Em        F             C
Each night I cry, as I think of that shanty.
C          Em            F            G7
And pretty patches there watching the door. 
C           E           F             C
She doesn't know that I can't come to see her..
C            Em            F        G7 C
Patches must think, that I love her no more.


#4. (Capo/barre 4th fret. Key E)
C        Em       F          C
I hear a neighbor telling my father..
C         Em           F           G7
He says a girl name of Patches was found,
C             E            F         C
floating face down in that dirty old river,
C                 Em            F         G7 C
that flows by the coal yards in old Shan..ty town.

C    E         F          C   F            C
Pat..ches, 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.. 
C           G7        C
Patches I'm coming to you.
