OVER THE RHINE


All Over Ohio Lyrics

Well the rain it has been falling
Like it wants to drown us all
And the trees are gently swaying
Like they're thinkin' 'bout the fall
I still get shivers when I hear
You singin' down the hall
I'm gonna kiss you all over Ohio

And the starlings they were flying
Earlier today
Doing their maneuvers
Clouds of feathers on display
Makes me wanna kneel in prayer but
I've forgotten what to say
I'll just name all the birds in Ohio

Now the reason I am writing
Is to tell you 'bout the flood
Ahh, the river is so beautiful
But it leaves a load of mud
All I have now are these dirty songs
I guess they're in my blood
They make me wander so far from Ohio

(Yeah) It's a silly undertaking
To fly halfway 'round the earth
With an imaginary womb of songs
Intent on giving birth
I gave all that I had to give
I'm not sure what it's worth
Scatter the ashes right here in Ohio

All I wanna be is a thousand black birds
Bursting from a tree into the blue
Love - let it be not just a feeling
But the broken beauty
Of what we choose to do

And the halleujah
Used to make my Daddy cry
I still wonder 'bout the ruckus
Angels make up there on high
In the meanwhile there are measures
We can take to get us by
Lay me down next to you in Ohio

But my expectations stand still
Like beggars at the door
I'm flat broke from the dues
I've paid them all before
Gonna let the Cuyahoga
Wash me up on burning shores
Shipwrecked with you in Ohio

All I wanna be is a thousand black birds
Bursting from a tree into the blue
Love - let it be not just a feeling
But the broken beauty
Of what we choose to do

I have seen the slow corruption
Of the best ideas of Christ
In the pulpits of our nation
Gospel turned into white lies
If you preach a subtle hatred -
The bible as your alibi
Goddam you right here in Ohio

But my shameless hallucination:
He's still knockin' at my door
And I know how this one's gonna end
He's gotten in before
I've run as fast as I can run
I've had to ask, What for?
He haunts me all over Ohio

All I wanna be is a thousand black birds
Bursting from a tree into the blue
Love - let it be not just a feeling
But the broken beauty
Of what we choose to do

Well the rain it has been falling
Like it wants to drown us all
And the trees are gently swaying
Like they're thinkin' 'bout the fall
I still get shivers when I hear
You singin' down the hall
I'm gonna kiss you all over Ohio
