Tears Fell On Missouri

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		Note: There are two places where a momentary shift is happening between 
the words 'their' and 'little' in the line that has 'from their little Georgia home'. 
I'm not exactly sure what it is but will try to figure it out.  
(The song will work without it.) 

 

Intro -   (D)   (Em)   (G)   (A) 

He called from Kansas (G) City 
He said I'm on the Missouri (D) side         (Bm)  
She said you had me (G) worried 
I'm expecting you to-(Em)-night   (A) 
The silence that (G) followed, caused her (F#m) heart beat to (Bm) race   (G)  
So she got out a (Em) map, her hands a-trembling as she (G) sat for the next words he would (A) say 

Chorus 1 
Then her tears fell on Miss-(G)-ouri like rain a pourin' (F#m) down   (Bm) 
He just called and (G) told her about a new love he'd (Em) found   (A)  
The children lay a-(G)-sleepin' they don't (F#m) know their daddy's (Bm) gone   (G)  
Then her tears fell on (Em) Missouri (A) from their little Georgia (D) home (G) (D) 

She said what about our (G) babies 
Don't you remember the (D) day         (Bm)  
The doctor gave them (G) to you  
And your tears of joy fell on their (Em) face   (A)  
You should have thought of their (G) feelings, cause its not just (F#m) you and me a-(Bm)-lone    (G) 
What am I gonna (Em) say to our angels when they (G) wake and ask why dad's not coming (A) home 

Chorus 2 
*Then her tears fell on Miss-(G)-ouri like rain a pourin' (F#m) down   (Bm) 
*He just called and (G) told her about a new love he'd (Em) found   (A)  
The children lay a-(G)-sleepin' they don't (F#m) know their daddy's (Bm) gone   (G)  
Then her tears fell on (Em) Missouri (A) from their little Georgia (Bm) home (D) 

Instrumental ? Follow pattern of first two lines in Chorus 2*, starting in (D) 

The children lay a-(G)-sleepin' they don't (F#m) know their daddy's (Bm) gone   (G)  
Then her tears fell on (Em) Missouri (A) from their little Georgia (Bm) home (G) 
And her tears fell on (Em) Missouri (A) from their little Georgia (D) home
