Whiskeytown – House On The Hill tab
Just some simple chords for this great song. It's not played with a capo but sounds nice with one on the 2nd fret. (C,Fmaj,G)(C,Fmaj,G) C Fmaj Well I found a bunch of letters they were written for the fella G Who broke your Momma's heart C Fmaj G And the envelope folds smelled of her ancient perfume Fmaj G I'll bet she didn't know C /b Am Fmaj G How to respond before the blankets of snow caught him out wandering alone C With no place to go (Fmaj,C) Fmaj G And there was stars in the sky C /b Am There were houses on the hill and there were bottles of pills Fmaj G C 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)
