houses on the hill
by:  whiskeytown
album:  strangers almanac
submitted by:  randy floyd

(C   F   G   G   C   F   G   G)

Well, I (C)found a bunch of letters
They were (F)written for the fellow
Who (G)broke your momma's heart
And the (C)envelope folds (F)smelled of her ancient 
(F)I'll bet she didn't (G)know
How to re(C)spond before the (C/B)blankets of (Am)snow
(Am/G)Caught him out (F)wandering a(G)lone
With no place to (C)go (F C)

CHORUS 1     
(F) There were stars in the (G)sky
There were (C)houses on the (C/B)hill
There were (Am)bottles and (Am/G)pills
That were (F)easy to buy to (G)keep her warm
From the (C)oncoming storm (F C)

Well, I found them in the northwest corner of the attic
In a box labeled "Tinsel and Lights"
Didn't know what I was looking for
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 shore, it must have been a target
For the gunner-men

CHORUS 2     
There were stars in the sky
There were bunkers in the hill
And there were caskets to fill where he would lie
Shrouded in the red, white & blue with the stripes
repeat CHORUS 1
