The Ghost of Cincinnati Lyrics

The Bell tolls noon on 12th and Vine

 

And I still need this overtime

 

Cus I'm over myself

I'm over the hill

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time for the millionth time

 

I park at this spot and stare at the water

 

Try to remember I'm somebody's father

 

Dawn commute across Covington Bridge

Get lost in my head just looking at it

 

Now I'm looking at you

 

Through the hole in my sheet

 

And I still need this overtime

 

'Cause I'm over myself

I'm over the hill

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time for the millionth time

 

I'm overspent overworked overlooked

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time

 

Cut through Ault Park 'cause it's safe now

 

I stalk the streets in my nightgown

 

The Ghost of Cincinnati slinks past

 

I smell your coffee can you taste that

 

My lip on your cup won't even feel real

 

I'm rushing there all the way there

Cus I'm over myself

Over the hill

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time for the millionth time

 

I'm overspent overworked overlooked

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time

 

I feel over my head

Over the hill

I'm over myself

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time

 

Stalk the spring grove

Rot in my old clothes

Pardon Pete Rose

And wonder why the evil grows

Now I'm in the big time

Not a suicide

I'd stalk the streets

And haunt you from the northside

 

I pace the hedge row

Dodge the low blows

Play the Fountain Square

And wonder where my cousins go

I haunt the northside

Stop the traffic lights

Cycle up Price Hill

And stare up at the Pepsi sign

I'm overextended

 

I'm over it all

I'm Over-The-Rhine

For the millionth time

I'm overextended

I'm over it all

I'm Over-The-Rhine

 

For the millionth time for the millionth time
