There were twenty, maybe, twenty-five of us
Drivin' out to California in a bus
We were looking for a good time
And a radio station we could trust

Suddenly we heard an angry thud
And our mighty chariot turned into a dud
We were stopped there in our tracks, man
Adjacent to some cows chewing their cud

Lord, please send some mercy down to me
(50 miles south of Bowling Green)
This will clearly never be my scene
(Why does every city start with 'C'?)

There's only one sure thing that I know
I've got to get out of Ohio
Till then I'll never feel love

They say that what you give is what you're gonna get
It's no wonder everything's gone to shit
Because they've given us John Boehner
And you better believe they've given us chicken shit

And the floodgates of hell have opened wide
It's better to get all politics aside
They're gonna roll out Joe the Plumber
Just to make sure our minds get properly fried

Lord, be merciful and let me die
(50 miles south of Lodi)
Round on both ends and the middle's high
What's so great about a buckeye?

Whose might is riptide and undertow
There's no escaping from Ohio
I'll never get to feel love

The walls they are closing in
But I'm just inside of Michigan
The only way that I'll obtain ya
Is if I get over to Pennsylvania

Except for GBV and Devo
Nothing seems to redeem Ohio
It is the state that killed my love

Don't you want to come with me
And make a break for Kentucky
I still got something to put in ya
But we'll have to go to West Virginia

And I've heard great things about Indiana, too
