"Poughkeepsie" Performed by Over The Rhine

Capo 1


               G
I thought I'd go up Poughkeepsie,
      C 
look out o'er the Hudson,
       G                           D
and I'd throw my body down on the river.
       G
And I'd know no more sorrow,
      C
I'd fly like the sparrow
         G                       D          G
and I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

      D                       C          G
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
      D                   C        G
I'd take to the sky with all my might.
 G
No more drowning in my sorrow,
 G                      C
no more drowning in my fright,
           G                       D       G
I'd just ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

            G    
There are those who know sorrow
     C
and those who must borrow
      G                           D
and those whose lot in life is sweet.
          G
Well I'm drunk on self-pity,
         C
scorned all that's been given me,
           G                        D      G
I would drink from a bottle labeled Sure Defeat.


      D                       C          G
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
      D                   C        G
I'd take to the sky with all my might.
 G
No more drowning in my sorrow,
 G                      C
no more drowning in my fright,
           G                       D       G
I'd just ride on the backs of the angels tonight.

           G
Then the skies, they fell open
         C
and my eyes were opened
     G                             D
to a world of hope falling at my feet.
         G
Now I've no more or less
       C
than anyone else has,
        G                  D            G
what I have is a gift of life I can't repeat.

      G
So I go up Poughkeepsie,
      C
look out o'er the Hudson
        G                    D
and I cast my worries to the sky.
         G
Now I still know sorrow,
           C
but I can fly like the sparrow
          G                      D         G
'cause I ride on the backs of the angels tonight.


      D                       C          G
I ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
      D                   C        G
I take to the sky with all their might.
 G
No more drowning in my sorrow,
 G                      C
no more drowning in my fright,
           G                        D           G
I'll just ride on the backs of the angels each night.
