Mansion on the Hill
Based on the track from The Last Train To Mashville, Vol.2

This is a pretty slow choon on the album and there is some finger picking, hammering and 
sliding but it’s all based on these chords I think so it’s a great one to improv on and 
muck about with.

Intro

A C D A C D

    A
I hit the dance floor around about midnight
    C                                D
Gin and juice and I was feelin’ fine
 A
Come the morning all the sounds went up
C                           D
Police man said the joint was shut
A
All the brothers gettin' busted outside
C                            D
Undercover officers readin' them their rights
A
It’s a one way ticket boys you’re prison bound
C                              D
The night the lights in Dallas went down


Chorus

So
A
How long we gotta wait until
F                                D                     A
We get the keys to the mansion on the hill
A
How long we gotta waste our time
F                                D                          A
Boardin' a bus that's bound for the welfare line

A C D

A
She shakes the blues off then she tries her luck
C                                        D
Makes a little bet, hopes her horse comes up
A
She’s pickin' pockets for some easy money
C                                   D
Blew the damn lot on the lottery
A
She steals a paper, checks the front page
C                                  D
Headlines read the dancehall can't be saved
A
How can they open up an opera house
C                               D
The night the lights in Dallas went down

Chorus

So
A
How long we gotta wait until
F                                D                     A
We get the keys to the mansion on the hill
A
How long we gotta waste our time
F                             D                             A
Boardin' a bus that's bound for the welfare line

A F D

D          A
Welfare line…

A C D

A
Tweek freak Tony on the four two eight
C                                    D
Special branch sting right time wrong place
A
Columbian connections in the corridors of power
C                                               D
Mean the man on the money ain't ever goin' down
A
Lord Lucky takes his lady to the Magic Flute
C                                  D
Little taste or two thinks he's bullet proof
A
Tony tunes the underground radio
C                                   D
On the night the lights in Dallas went down

Chorus

So
A
How long we gotta wait until
F                                D
We get the keys to the mansion on the hill
A
How long we gotta waste our time
F                             D                             A
Boardin' a bus that's bound for the welfare line
