	  D         A/G        A7    [the A/G is probably A mistake]

	G             D
	I swear I'll always love you
	       G                               D          Bm
	But a girl from that place will just bring me disgrace

	So my folks won't let me love you

	And pretty Patches there watching the door
	Eb           Gm          Ab          Eb/Bb
	She doesn't know that I can't come to see her
	 Eb                        Bb7         Eb    B7
	Patches must think that I love her no more

	[key change to E]

Verse 4:

	E                  A          E/B
	I hear a neighbor telling my father
	E                       A            B
	He says a girl name of Patches was found
	 E            G#m           A         E/B
	Floating face down in that dirty old river
	       E                       B7         E
	That flows by the coalyards in old Shantytown

	Patches, I'm comin' to you
