House On The Hill

Whiskeytown

 CFmaj
Well I found a bunch of letters they were written for the fella
 G
Who broke your Momma's heart
 CFmajG
And the envelope folds smelled of her ancient perfume
 FmajG
 I'll bet she didn't know
 C/bAmFmajG
How to respond before the blankets of snow caught him out wandering alone
 C
With no place to go

(Fmaj,C)

 FmajG
 And there was stars in the sky
 C/bAm
There were houses on the hill and there were bottles of pills
 FmajGC
That were easy to buy, keep her warm from the oncoming storm

Well I found them in the north-west corner of the attic in a box
Labeled 'Tinsel and Lights'
Didn't know what I was looking, maybe just a blanket or artifacts
Eisenhower sent him to war
He kept her picture in his pocket that was closest to his heart and when he hit
the shore, must of been a target for the gunner-men

There were stars in the sky
And there were bunkers on the hill and there were caskets to fill
Where he would lie, shrouded in the red, white and blue with the stripes

(Chorus 1)








Am C Fmaj G
