Verse 1:
C#                                                      F#
Savin Hill my starting point, down the beach with a few beers
                          C#
Didn't know what life had in for us
C#                                                     F#
Starting out at St. Margarets, up there on that lonely hill
                    C#
I got my start in 1970
C#*                                                      F#*
Moved on down to Motley school, down to St. Willies from there
                             C#*
The catholic golden rule got hooks in me
C#*
Sister Robad, Ms. Coughlin, the teachers and their authority
F#*                          C#
I put my fists up to them at every turn

Chorus:
F#    G#             F#               G#
Savin Hill it was my start, beginning of a lifetime,
F#        G#                C#
I still remember those days clearly
F#     G#             F#           G#
Cannot forget my roots, or when it really started,
F#    G#               C#
Savin Hill down by the beach 

Verse 2:
C#*                                                             F#*
Grades on to eight were nuts, hi-jinx, stunts and pranks pulled out
                           C#*          
Me and my cousin Bill, the terrible two
C#*                                
Danny, Joey, Robby, John, Saxon and Victoria
F#*                     C#*       
Many a long neck bottle cracked down there 

Chorus 2:
F#    G#             F#               G#
Savin Hill it was my start, from the courts back to the park
F#          G#                  C#
The weekend time seemed so **** free
F#         G#              F#          G#
If you had my back, I took yours, our obligatory creed
F#    G#               C#
Savin Hill down by the beach

Bridge:

Do you remember the tennis courts?

The bungalow or Harpo's bench
(Interlude)
Do you remember jumping that bridge?

The risks we took and our chances?

Verse 3:
    C#                     F#
The later years brought on alcohol nights
        B                        C#
Coupled with petty arguments and barroom fights
   C#                        F#
We never broke apart, and we stood our ground
     B                C#
If a cohort was lost, he was found
   C#                     F#
If things got hot, Dorchester stayed cool
B                     C#
No other townies came toward us fools
C#              F#
Savin Hill down by the beach
B                   C#
It's these memories I'll go preach (these lines x2- solo played after first)
C#            F#             B    C#
Savin Hill is where it all began

in the interlude i think this part:
G--12--12-12-12--12-12-12--12-12-12--12-12--10-10-10-10--|
D--11--11-11-11--11-11-11--11-11-11--11-11--11-11-11-11--|

should be:
G--13--13-13-13--13-13-13--13-13-13--13-13--10-10-10-10--|
D--11--11-11-11--11-11-11--11-11-11--11-11--11-11-11-11--|
