(I’m playing this song with a E- E6 -E7 riff through most of the verses. That is, an E, then an E with
pinkie added on 2nd fret of 2nd string, then sliding my pinkie up to the 3rd fret. Of course, there may be
better way.)

E- E6 -E7 riff
The hoods are up on Pine Street, rearends lifted, too
The great-grandsons of General Robert E. Lee

are makin’ love with a little help from STP[F#m]

Their women on [A]the porches, comparin’ alibis[E-][E6][-E7]

(E- E6 -E7 riff)
Greasy eggs & bacon, bumper stickers aimed to start a fight
Folk in wrecks, confederate caps, if you want some shine well
you can always find some more[F#m][F#m7]

but what I reme[A]mber most, is the color of Susie’s door[E-][E6][-E7]

And Susie [C#m]says she’s up there[Ab], cutting carrots st[A]ill[E]

[E]Susie say[B]s she’s missing me[Am]

so I'[F#m]m missing, Oregon Hill[E-][E6][-E7]

(E- E6 -E7 riff)
A river to the south, to wash away all sin
A college to the east of us, to learn where sin begins

A graveyard to the west of it all[F#m][F#m7]

The child may[A] soon be lying in it[E-][E6][-E7]

Cause to the north the[A]re is a prison,[E]

which I’ve come[A] to call my home[E]

but come Monday morning[A], no country song,[E]

will sing me [B]home again[A][E]

Sus[C#m]ie says she’s up th[Ab]ere, cutting [A]carrots still[E]

[E]Susie say[B]s she’s missing me, [Am]so I’m missing, O[F#m]regon Hill[E-][E6][-E7]

(E- E6 -E7 riff)
Sunday morning, 8 a.m., sirens fill the air
Sounds like someone made the river
Sounds like someone being born again[F#m][F#m7]

But me,[A] I’m just lyin’ [Abm]here in S[F#m]usie’s bed[E-][E6][-E7]

Baptists celeb[A]rating with praises to the lord[E]

Redn[A]ecks doin’ it with gin[E]

Me and Susie, [A]we’re just celebrating, the joys of sl[E]eepin’ in[B],[A][E]

because tomorr[F#m]ow, I’ll be home[A] again.[E-][E6][-E7]

Sus[C#m]ie says she’ll wait the[Ab]re,

cutting carr[A]ots by the window sill[E]
