E            A                                  E
Oxford town, Oxford town, everybodies got their heads bowed down
                   A                                       E
The sun dont shine above the ground, better get away from Oxford town.

E               A                                E
He went down to Oxford town, guns and clubs they followed him down
                A                                    E
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
                   A                                         E
All because of the colour of his skin, what'd ya think about that my friend?

E                  A                              E
Me and my girl and my girl's son, we got met by a tear gas bomb
               A                                   E
Dont even know why we come, we're going back where we come from.

E  A/E  A/E  A/E  A

E                  A                                E
Oxford town in the afternoon, everybodies singing a soft tune
                     A                                   E
Two men died under the mississippi moon, somebody better investigate soon.

E  A/E  A/E
