Houses on the Hill  Whiskeytown



INTRO:          [C   F   G   G   C   F   G   G]<br/>
VERSE ONE:      Well, I [C]found a bunch of letters<br/>
                They were [F]written for the fellow<br/>
                Who [G]broke your momma's heart<br/>
                And the [C]envelope folds [F]smelled of her ancient per[G]fume<br/>
                [F]I'll bet she didn't [G]know<br/>
                How to re[C]spond to forty [C/B]blankets of [Am]snow<br/>
                [Am/G]Caught him out [F]wandering a[G]lone<br/>
                With no place to [C]go [F C]<br/>
CHORUS I:       [F] There were stars in the [C]sky<br/>
                There were [C]houses on the [C/B]hill<br/>
                There were [Am]bottles and [Am/G]pills<br/>
                That were [F]easy to buy to [G]keep her warm<br/>
                From the [C]oncoming storm [F C]<br/>
VERSE TWO:      Well, I found them in the northwest corner of the attic<br/>
                In a box labeled "Tinsel and Lights"<br/>
                Didn't know what I was looking for<br/>
                Maybe just a blanket or artifacts<br/>
                Eisenhower sent him to war<br/>
                He kept her picture in his pocket that was closest to his heart<br/>
                And when he hit shore, it must have been a target<br/>
                For the gunner-men<br/>
CHORUS II:      There were stars in the sky<br/>
                There were bunkers in the hill<br/>
                And there were caskets to fill where he would lie<br/>
                Shrouded in the red, white & blue with the stripes<br/>
repeat CHORUS I<br/>
