Oh, Susquehanna!
Defiance, Ohio
The Great Depression

   C                                                  Am
We walk at the paths at the banks of the mighty Susquehanna
         C                                          Am
with our feet made muddy by your tributaries that trickle their way to the Chesapeake. 
             Am                     C
It's like we follow I-83 down to harbor cities with strip malls and tar-mac
Am                              C
people swirling and teeming. It seemed so exciting, but now it seems like such a blight.

C     Am

C                             Am
I grew up near Kentucky's Mt. Zion
         C                                   Am
Road and all that was there was some old cemetery.
Am                                           C
All I wanted [was] to be able to walk to the store.
    Am                                                   C
Now I don't live there but there's too many stores, some apartments, and a Sunoco.
      C                                 Am
And I wonder, what did they do with the bodies?
C         Am
Oh, Susquehanna!

C     Am

      C                                       Am
And I miss that place behind my house where I hiked and climbed and played
      C                                    Am
where I ditched this noisy century or just hid out from the decade.
    Am                                   C
M-I homes thought it could stand to be updated
               Am                                        C
forced it all into a grid until it looked like the funny pages.

     C                                 Am
With every trace of life, it seems, confined within a frame
    C                                  Am
the faces move from day to day but the strips all look the same.
        Am                            C
And the punchlines are resoundingly unfunny
         Am                                    C
for those trapped in this architecture of easy money.

       C                                    Am
And it feels like this could all come to no good.
             C                                             Am
The kids who populate these culdesacs will never know what stood beneath those
Am                    C 
cookie cutter houses: fields and streams and woods.
               Am                                  C
They'll sit in cars and wait for mom to drive them out of this boring neighborhood.
