The Ghost of Cincinnati Lyrics

[Intro]
There the bell tolls noon on 12th and Vine
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

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus 1]
‘Cause I’m over myself
I’m over the hill
I’m Over-the-Rhinе
For the millionth time
For the millionth timе
I’m overspent
Overworked
Overlooked
I’m Over-the-Rhine
For the millionth time

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus 2]
‘Cause 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

[Bridge]
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

[Outro]
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
