The "Bar & Chain Oil" is a little better to use since it has special ingredients to make it stickier than a regular motor oil. This way it doesn't fly off the chain as quickly but in a pinch, regular motor oil will do. Home Depot carries a couple of different brands. Most Ferreterias that also sell lawn & garden equipment including chain saws also carry it.

Pedro nailed it,

And while you are at it, buy the proper size file to sharpen the teeth one by one. Oil won´t fix dull teeth.
