      About "Down From Dover"

      Lyrics for Skeeter Davis - "Down From Dover"

      I know this dress I'm wearing doesn't hide the secret I have tried concealing
      When he left he promised me that he'd be back by the time it was revealing
      The sun behind a cloud just casts the crawling shadow o'er the fields of clover
      And time is running out for me I wish that he would hurry down from Dover
      He's been gone so long when he left the snow was deep upon the ground
      And I have seen a spring and summer pass and now the leaves are turning brown
      And any time a tiny face will show itself cause waiting's almost over
      But I won't have a name to give it if he doesn't hurry down from Dover
      My parents didn't understanding when they found out they sent me
      From the home place
      My daddy said if folks found out he would be ashamed to ever show his face
      My mother said I was a fool and she did not believe me when I told her
      But everything would be all right cause soon he would be coming down from Dover

      I loved him more than anything and I could not refuse him when he needed me
      He was the only man I'd loved and I just can't believe that he was using me
      He couldn't leave me here like this I know it can't be so it can't be over
      He wouldn't make me go through this so long he'll be coming down from Dover
      My body aches the time is here it's lonely in this place where I'm lying
      Our baby has been born but something's wrong it's much too still I hear no crying
      I guess in some strange way she knew she'd never have a daddy's arms to hold her
      And dying was her way of telling me he wasn't coming down from Dover
