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 Over 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 Because waiting's almost over But I won't have a name to give It if he doesn't hurry down from Dover From Dover, from Dover My folks weren't understanding when they found out They sent me from the home place My daddy said if folks found out He'd be ashamed to ever show his face My mamma said I was a fool And she did not believe it when I told her That everything would be all right Because soon he would be coming down from Dover I found a place to stay out On a farm takin' care of that old lady She never asked me nuthin' So I never talked to her about my baby I sent a messgae to my mom With a name and address of Ms. ol' Grover And to make sure he got that information When he came down from Dover I loved him more than anything And I could not refuse him when he needed me He was the only one 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 alone Oh 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 father's arms to hold her And dying was her way of telling me He wasn't coming down from Dover
