lyrics

You said all our favorite thinkers went on quests out west to find themselves,
And when they came back they had such nice things to say about the rolling plains,
But when I went out to the gem state, I held my lover by the waist for the last time.

If there’s such great beauty to see, is there a great beauty in me?

You said all our favorite singers wrote such lovely odes about Ohio,
They sang “Carry me, bury me, love me and marry me Ohio!”
But we stand still with frozen feet, the brutal winters of the north east,
Have put a bounty, on our heads.

And they say we will never leave, we’ll never see the redwood trees,
But if there’s such great beauty to see, is there a great beauty in me?

I am tired of waiting, I am tired of waiting,
I’ll never see Ohio, see Ohio,
I’ll never see.
