Berikut lirik dan chord lagu "South Hill" dari Tim Barry.

Intro: E


           E
When my girl got pregnant well I dropped right out of school
                        A
But there's no work in South Hill so what else could I do?
E
The recruiter's came-a-knocking when this whole damn thing began
B5                      E
They promised me a college education food and medicine
                       E
They said I wouldn't spend a dime if I got deployed overseas
         A
Plus Baghdad is safer now than old Washington, DC
E
So I signed that dotted line right quick and in a blink of an eye
B5                             E
I found myself at Fort Benning where I practiced forming lines
                   E
Well Fallujah became my home, my comfort and my dread
                   A
The marines that came through first man they tore this place to shreds
                                                                                   E
With the sound of crushing Amtracs and the whine of their Humvee's
B5                  E
Calling in them A-10 air strikes man I wish I could have seen it
            E
But when we got to town I realized we were only legs
                           A
We do dismounted patrols we do searches and do raids
                E
We hear the crack of small arms fire and the blast from IED's
B5                                  E
We hurry up and wait, suck in dust and stay low key

B5                    A                      E
And I cannot stop this pounding in my head
B5           A              E
I thought we were doing right but that's not what folks back home have said
A          B5                 E          A
Sometimes I can't tell which way is up or which is down
B5                    A
But I'm oddly at ease with this chaos all around

                  E
Then one day out on patrol doing time out in the heat
                         A
We were ordered to a neighborhood to talk to folks out on the street
                              E
To gather information on where some weapons may be stored
B5                  E
Or to see if the Mujahideen had hauled them off out of Fallujah and to the north
                E
Well my platoon got lost and made more then one wrong turn
                                  A
We should have called in our position fast but we blamed each other first
                          E
Then we started taking sniper fire - god damn them all
B5                                         E
We couldn't find the shooter no where he had us pinned down one and all
                E
Well friendies they caught up and we took back that god damned street
                         A
But something wasn't right and I was feeling really weak
                             E
My adrenaline was high and I was scared and I could hardly breathe
B5                                           E
I heard doc argue with the Sarg that morphine might kill me
                        E
That's the last thing I remember that and heat and clear blue sky
                    A
And thinking about my girl back home and my daughters little eyes
                      E
I took that bullet in Fallujah and I'm laid up in Germany
B5                                E
And I'm headed back stateside to the care of Walter Reed

B5                       A                   E
And I cannot feel a thing below my waist
B5                        A            E
Doc tried to help me man but it was too late
A              B5              E               A
Now I don't know who is right or who is wrong
B5                      E
But I'm fucked up and I want to go back home
B5                A                 E
And I cannot stop this pounding in my head
B5                 A             E
I thought we were doing right but that's not what folks back home have said
A           B5           E         A
Sometimes I can't tell which way is up or which is down
B5                 E
But one day I'll stand firmly on the ground
B5                              E
Yes one day I'll stand firmly on the ground
