Conor Oberst
Snake Hill
From the new album "Outer South"

(G)I was born on Snake Hill
CAnd that's where I'll probably die
GBecause I don't like to kill
CBut I've got poison in my bite
GWell, I feel safe to say
C GThat I should probably stay upon Snake Hill
G CMy mother told me, "Son, you've got strychnine in your blood
G DIt comes from pedigree ancestory"
GShe warned me not to leave
CSaid my concience was too deep
GThat when I bite
D GIt would hurt mostly me
GFor many many years
CI stayed up on that hill
G DOccasionaly I'd go down to the edge
GTo see what I could see
C GSo curiousty got the best of me
C GIts a big world and it's not fair to me
C GTo have to stay when there's so much to see
C G DI want to play with others that I need to meet
Am C GPoison will be poison until it's through
Soon I hit the world I discovered that a girl Was what my mother tried to hide from me She could make you feel alive She could make you want to die And that's exactly what she did to me And it was only self defense And I coiled up and I bit I let my venom run into her veins And I sat and watched her die Then I realized I was born on Snake Hill And that's where I'll probably die Because I don't like to kill But I've got poison in my bite Well, I feel safe to say That I should probably stay upon Snake Hill And it's a big world and it's not fair to me To have to stay when there's so much to see I want to play with others that I need to meet And poison will be poison until it's through Poison will be poison until it's through Poison will be poison until it's through Poison will be poison until it's through
