The Curse Of Millhaven

  		
verse 1 

  Am 
I live in a town called Millhaven 
                                      Dm 
And it's small and it's mean and it's cold 

But if you come around just as the sun goes down 
                                      Am 
You can watch the whole thing turn to gold 
G                             G7 
It's around about then that I used to go a-roaming 


Hook 
        C           Am 
Singing La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                      E7        Am 
All God's children they all gotta die 


verse 2 
   Am 
My name is Loretta, but I prefer Lottie 
                               Dm 
I'm closing in on my fifteenth year 

If you think you have seen a pair of eyes more green 
                                      Am 
Then you sure haven't see them around here 
G                                 G7 
Well my hair is a-yeller' and I'm always a-combing 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                            E7         Am 
My mama often told me that we all got to die 


verse 3 
Am 
You must have heard about The Curse Of Millhaven 
                                        Dm 
How last Christmas Bill Blakey's little boy didn't come home 

They found him the next week up in One Mile Creek 
                                Am 
With his head bashed in and his pockets full of stones 
      G                    G7 
Well, just imagine all the wailing and the moaning 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                              E7        Am 
Even little Billy Blakey's boy, he had to die 


verse 4 
        Am 
Then Professor O'Rye from Millhaven High 
                                           Dm 
Found nailed to his door his prize-winning terrier 

The next day the old fool brought little Biko to school 
                                     Am 
And we all had to watch as he buried her 
         G                  G7 
Well his eulogy to Biko had all the tears flowing 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
     Dm                      E7           Am 
Even God's little creatures, they have to die 


Verse 5 
    Am 
Our little town fell into a state of shock 
                                                    Dm 
A lot of people were saying things that made little sense 

The next thing you know the head of Handyman Joe 
                                         Am 
Was found in the fountain of the Mayor's residence 
     G                          G7 
Well foul play can really get a small town going 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
     Dm              E7           Am 
Even God's children, they have to die 


Verse 6 
     Am 
In a cruel twist of fate, old Mrs Colgate 
                                Dm 
Was stabbed but the job was not complete 

Well, the last thing she said before the cops pronounced her dead 
                                   Am 
Was, "My killer is Loretta and she lives across the street!" 
    G                            G7 
And twenty cops burst through my door without even phoning 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
    Dm                           E7             Am 
The young ones and the old ones, they all gotta die 


Verse 7 
        Am 
Yes, it is I, Lottie, The Curse Of Millhaven 
                                        Dm 
I've struck horror in the heart of this town 

Like my eyes ain't green and my hair ain't yeller' 
                              Am 
It's more like the other way around 
        G                        G7 
I got a pretty little mouth underneath all the foaming 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                  E7        Am 
Sooner or later, we all gotta die 


Verse 8 
      Am 
Since I was no bigger than a weevil they've been saying I was evil 
                                  Dm 
That if "bad" was a boot that I'd fit it 

That I'm a wicked young lady, but I've been trying hard lately 
                                    Am 
Aw, fuck it, I'm a monster, I admit it! 
        G                        G7 
Well it makes me so mad that my blood starts a-going 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                          E7        Am 
Mama always told me that we all gotta die 


Verse 9 
             Am 
Well yeah, I drowned the Blakey kid, stabbed Mrs. Colgate, I admit 
                                       Dm 
Did the handyman with his circular saw in his garden shed 

But I never crucified little Biko, that was two junior high school psychos 
                                      Am 
Stinky Bohoon and his friend with the pumpkin-sized head 
     G                             G7 
I'll sing to the lot, now that you got me going 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                      E7        Am 
All God's children have all gotta die 


verse 10 
            Am 
Then there' all the others, all our sisters and brothers 
                                    Dm 
You assumed were accidents, best forgotten 

Recall the children who broke through the ice on Lake Tahoo? 
                                                              Am 
Everyone assumed the "Warning" signs had followed them to the bottom 
              G                               G7 
Well, they're underneath the house where I do quite a bit of stowing 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
     Dm                          E7          Am 
Even twenty little children, now they had to die 


verse 11 
        Am 
And the fire of '91 that razed the Bella Vista slum 
                                                    Dm 
That was the biggest shit-fight this country's ever seen 

Insurance companies ruined, land lords getting sued 
                                      Am 
All cause of a wee little girl with a can of gasoline 
      G                             G7 
Those flames really roared when the wind started blowing 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
       Dm                            E7        Am 
Well a rich man and a poor man, they all gotta die 


verse 12 
          Am 
Well I confessed to all these crimes and they put me on trial 
                                  Dm 
I was laughing when they took me away 

Off to the asylum in an old black Mariah 
                                                   Am 
Well it ain't home, but you know, it's better than jail 
   G                    G7 
It ain't such a bad old place to have a home in 


Hook 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                      E7        Am 
All God's children they all gotta die 


verse 13 
          Am 
Now I got shrinks that will not rest with their endless Rorschach tests 
                                                Dm 
I keep telling them that I think they're out to get me 

They ask me if I feel remorse and I answer, "Why of course! 
                                                 Am 
There's so much more I could have done if they'd let me!" 
        G                         G7 
So it's Rorschach and Prozac, and everything is groovy 


Hook 
        C           Am 
Singing La la la la La la la lie 
      Dm                      E7          Am 
Well, all God's children they all have to die 
C           Am 
La la la la La la la lie 
    Dm                       E7            Am 
I'm happy as a lark now, and everything is fine 
        C           Am 
Singing La la la la La la la lie 
Dm                       E7            Am 
Everything is groovy and everything is fine 
        C           Am 
Singing La la la la La la la lie 
      Dm                 E7         Am 
Well, all God's children they gotta die
