Song Structure:



Intro: [play Intro tab (line 1)]x3, then
       [play Intro tab (line 2)]x1


Verse 1: [play verse tab 4x over this]
His first kicking came on January 1st
They said, "Welcome to the club,
we'll take your shoes and your shirt."
He wore his nosebleed like a red rosette
And it was a prize he would win again and again and again


Break 1: [play Intro tab (line 1)]x2
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
               He had to find an escape route


Verse 2: [play verse tab 4x over this]
It was a rumour, but it soon became true
When he was drunk in the suburbs
with a boy from a different school.
All his good friends soon left him for dead
Now he stands staring down at the Clyde from a bridge


Break 1: [play Intro tab (line 1)]x2
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
               

Chorus 1: [use chorus tabs]
And then he saw an escape route
From the dogs of West Renfrew
From the bitches and bruises
He chose Ohio to run to


Break 1: [play Intro tab (line 1)]x4
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh


Verse 3: [play Intro (line 1)x1, then (line 2)x1, then (line 1)x1, then verse 3/4 (line 1)x1]
The name came to him just as he perched
On the amber lit bridge, his whole face pursed
It had a ring to it in American songs
Like a glittering release from a crippling curse


Verse 4: [play verse 3/4 tab (line 2)x4]
He dreamt of the place of a cinematic space
And all the pointing fingers they just melted away
Who knows, maybe he'll never take flight
But he swears Ohio pulled him from the bridge that night


Break 1: [play Intro tab (line 1)]x2
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh


Chorus 2: [use chorus tabs]
It became an escape route
From the dogs of West Renfrew
From the bitches and beatings
Midwestern chest to fall into


Break 2: [E - Ab5 - A5 - Db5] then,
         [E - Ab5 - A5 - Ab5]


Bridge: 
E                     Ab5
Some are saved by the good arms
A5                    Db5
Some are saved by the church
E                     Ab5
Some get saved by the skin of their teeth
A5                                  Ab5
By the thought that it couldn't get much worse
E                    Ab5
Some are saved by professors
A5                Db5
Some are saved by police
E                   Ab5
Some get saved by a distant place
A5               Ab5
By an impossible American dream


Chorus 3: [use chorus tabs]
We all need an escape route
We all need an escape route


Outro chords: 
E
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, 
                     A5
From the punches and kicks
                        E
The fingernails and the pricks
                     Ab5
All the sharp little knives
                       B5
In the dark pockets of life
                     A5
From the bitches and bruises
                   E
From the burden of youth
                        B5
The public hangings and stonings
                    Ab5
Save us from fellow humans
                E
Just give us an escape route
