This is a great folk/punk song.  The timing on the other tab was great so i used 
it except fixed the chords that were used to be in the right key/be correct.  enjoy

Intro:

C  F

C                                                F
We walk the paths of the banks of the mighty Susquehanna
         C
With our feet made muddy by your tributaries
      F
That trickle their way to the Chesapeake
                    C
It's like we follow I-83 down to the harbor cities
F
Strip malls and the tar-mac
C
People swirling and teaming
F
It seemed so exciting, but now it seems like such a blight

C  F

C  F

C                             F
I grew up near Kentucky's Mt. Zion Road
C                                   F
All that was there was some old cemetary
         C                                           F
I wanted nothing more than to be able to walk to the store
    C
Now I don't live there but there's too many stores
     F
Some apartments and a Sunoco

           C                           F
And I wonder what did they do with the bodies?
           C                           F
And I wonder what did they do with the bodies?

C
Oh!
F
Susquehanna (repeat this four times)

C  F

C  F


      C
And I miss that place behind my house where I
F
Hiked and climbed and played
          C                             
Where I'd ditch this noisy century or just
F
Hid out from the decade
    C                                    F
M-I homes thought it could stand to be updated
                 C                                      F
Forced it all into a grid until it looks like the funny pages
C                                        F
With every trace of light that seems confined within a frame
    C                                  F
The faces move from day to day but the strips all look the same
        C                             F
And the punchlines are resoundingly unfunny
                  C                              F
For those trapped in this architecture of easy money
      C                             F
And I feel like this all come to no good
              C                               F
This kids who populate these cul-de-sacs will never know what stood
              C                     F
Beneath their cookie-cutter houses, fields and streams and woods
               C
They'll sit in cars and wait for mom to drive them
F
Out of this boring neighborhood

C
Oh!
F
Susquehanna (x4)

          C                               F
And I wonder, what did they do with the bodies? (x2)








That's it, thanks to the original poster of this tab for the timing, i just fixed 
the chords to the correct ones. - tabbed by FightinIrishPJ

When it gets to "Follow I-83" it isn't a C-F progression anymore. It switches to Am-C for the rest of the verse. It does that a few more times throughout the song. You just have to listen for it.
