Intro Em Em7 C6 Em

      D                  C
Daddy daddy come and look, 
C              D         Em
And see what I have found,
         D             Gmaj7 C
A little way away from here,
      Em7            Em     G
While digging in the ground.

(Chorus)
      D          Bm            F#m           G
Come away Melinda, come in and close the door,
G            D                   F#
It's nothing, just a picture book, 
     G          Em7 F#7/A# B Em
They had before the war.

      D6                Cmaj7
Daddy daddy come and see,
D                   Em
Daddy come and look,
                D6                       Cmaj7
There's four or five little Melinda girls,
          Em           G
Inside my picture book.

(Chorus)
     D           Bm            F#m           G
Come away Melinda, come in and close the door,
                   D                     F#
There were lots of little girls like you,
Gmaj7               B  F#7/E C Eb/F Fm
Before they had the war.

Fm       Eb                C#maj7
Oh daddy daddy come and see,
         Ebmaj7  Fm7
Oh daddy hurry do,
Fm              Eb6               C#maj7
There's someone in a pretty dress,
                Fm         Ab6 
She's all grown up like you.

(Chorus)
     Eb          Cm            Gm        Ab
Come away Melinda, come in and close the door,
     Eb              Gm     Amaj7  C            Em
That someone is a mommy, you had before the war.

      D    Cmaj7    D         Em
Daddy daddy tell me if you can,
    D6                           c
Why can't things be the way they were,
Em                  G G6
Before the war began.

(Chorus)
     D           Bm            F#m           G
Come away Melinda, come in and close the door,
           D                F#m
The answer lies in yesterday,
N/C
Before they had the war.
