Capo 4th Fret
In order to get the intro sounding right you'll want to strum the strings all open
after the A for half a beat
Oxford town, Oxford town, everybodies got their heads bowed down
The sun dont shine above the ground, better get away from Oxford town.
He went down to Oxford town, guns and clubs they followed him down
All because his face was brown, better get away from Oxford town.
Oxford town around the bend, come to the door but he couldn't get in
All because of the colour of his skin, what'd ya think about that my friend?
Me and my girl and my girl's son, we got met by a tear gas bomb
Dont even know why we come, we're going back where we come from.
Oxford town in the afternoon, everybodies singing a soft tune
Two men died under the mississippi moon, somebody better investigate soon.
