Guitar Tab:Oregon

From This Might Be A Wiki
Oregon
By: John Linnell
Key:
Year: 1999

The chord progression is the same throughout the song.  One possible way of playing it is tabbed below.
The important part about these voicings is that the bass ascends chromatically.

 F Gbdim Gm Abdim F/A Bb G/B C Dbdim Dm Eb C/E

-1-------3-------1-----------0-----------------
-1---1---3---3---1---3---3---1---5---6---8---8-
-2---2---3---4---2---3---0---0---6---7---8---5-
-3---1---5---3---3---3---0---2---5---7---8---5-
-3-------5-------0---1---2---3---4---5---6---7-
-1---2---3---4---------------------------------

Note that only the bass notes are played during verses 1, 2, and between the last two choruses.

F  Gbdim   Gm   Abdim
Oregon is bad
F/A       Bb  G/B    C
Stop it if you can
Dbdim     Dm
Here it comes
Eb      C/E
Here it comes

Now it's after you
Flee to some place new
Run away
Run away

From the penthouse
To the prison
To the humble pied-à-terre
Are they taking up the cry?

In the brothel
In the castle
On the crowded boulevard
Do they sing the dreadful words?

Oregon is bad
Stop it if you can
Here it comes
Here it comes 

Oregon is bad
Stop it if you can
Run away
Run away
