Oregon Hill

Michael Timmins


[E-E7-E6-E] The hoods are up on Pine Street, rear ends lifted too.
The great-grandsons of General Robert E. Lee
are makin' love with a little help from STP. [F#m]
Their [A] women on the porches, comparin' alibis [E-E7-E6-E]

Greasy eggs & bacon,
bumper stickers aimed to start a fight,
full gun racks, Confederate caps,
if you want some 'shine
well, you can always [F#m] find some more,
but [A] what I remember most, [G#m-F#m]
is the colour of Suzy's door [E-E7-E6-E]

[C#m] And Suzy says she's [G#] up there [A] cutting carrots [E] still.
[E-B] Suzy says she's [Am] missing me
so [F#m] I'm missing [NC] Oregon Hill [E-E7-E6-E]

A river to the south to wash away all sins.
A college to the east of us to learn where sin begins.
A graveyard to the [F#m] west of it all [A]
which I may [G#m-F#m] soon be lying in. [E-E7-E6-E]

'Cause to the [A] north there is a [E] prison
which [A] I've come to call my home, [E]
but come [A] Monday morning no [E] country song
will [B-A] sing me home again. [E]

And Suzy [C#m] says she's [G#] up there [A] cutting carrots [E] still.
[E-B] Susie says she's [Am] missing me
so [F#m] I'm missing [NC] Oregon Hill [E-E7-E6-E]

Sunday morning, eight A.M., sirens fill the air.
Sounds like someone made the river.
Sounds like someone being born again.
[F#m] But me, [A] I'm just lyin' [G#m-F#m] here in Suzy's bed [E-E7-E6-E]

[A] Baptists celebrating with [E] praises to the Lord, [A]
rednecks are doing it with [E] gin.
Me and [A] Suzy, we're just [E] celebrating
the [B-A] joys of sleeping in
[E] because [F#M] tomorrow [A] I'll be home again. [E-E7-E6-E]

[C#m] Suzy says she'll [G#] wait there
[A] cutting carrots by the window [E] sill.
[E-B] Suzy says, [Am] always think of me
[F#m] when you think of [NC] Oregon Hill [E-E7-E6-E]

bbkim's note: E-E7-E6-E = each chord form gets approximately 2 beats (1-&...) which makes a full bar.
