Verse:

I'll ne - ver for - get the peo - ple I met,  Bra - ving those an - gry skies.
I re - mem - ber well as the sha - dows fell,  The lght of hope in their eyes.
And tho' I'm far a- way,  I still can hear them say "Thumbs Up".....
 
Chorus:
There'll be Blue - birds ov - er,  The White Cliffs Of Do - ver,
To - mor - row,  Just you wait and see.
There'll be love and laugh - ter,  And peace e - ver af - ter,
To - mor - row,  When the world is free.
The shep - herd will tend his sheep,  The val - ley will bloom a - gain,
And Jim - my will go to sleep,  In his own lit - tle room a - gain.
There'll be Blue - birds ov - er,  The White Cliffs Of Do - ver,
To - mor - row,  Just you wait and see.
