Defiance Ohio – Oh Susquehanna chords ver. 2

Chords
Transpose:
Well, after three versions of this song, no one has quite got it spot-on yet. While 
Version 2 had the right idea, they failed (as everyone else did) to realize there is a 
varied chord progression midway through the verse, as you'll see here.




Chords used:
C  F  Am

Intro:
(mute the strings and strum the rhythm)
C  F
C  F

C FWe walk up the paths of the banks of the mighty Susquehanna
CWith our feet made muddy by your tributaries
FThat trickle their way to the Chesapeake
AmIt's like we follow I-83 down to the harbor cities
CStrip malls and the tar-mac
AmPeople swirling and teaming
CIt seemed so exciting, but now it seems like such a blight
C F C F
C FI grew up near Kentucky's Mt. Zion Road
C FAll that was there was some old cemetary
Am CI wanted nothing more than to be able to walk to the store
AmNow I don't live there but there's too many stores
CSome apartments and a Sunoco
C FAnd I wonder what did they do with the bodies?
C FAnd I wonder what did they do with the bodies?
COh!
FSusquehanna (x4)
C F C F
CAnd I miss that place behind my house where I
FHiked and climbed and played
CWhere I'd ditch this noisy century or just
FHid out from the decade
Am CM-I homes thought it could stand to be updated
Am CForced it all into a grid until it looks like the funny pages
C FWith every trace of light that seems confined within a frame
C FThe faces move from day to day but the strips all look the same
Am CAnd the punchlines are resoundingly unfunny
Am CFor those trapped in this architecture of easy money
C FAnd I feel like this all come to no good
C FThis kids who populate these cul-de-sacs will never know what stood
Am CBeneath their cookie-cutter houses, fields and streams and woods
AmThey'll sit in cars and wait for mom to drive them
COut of this boring neighborhood
COh!
FSusquehanna (x4)
C FAnd I wonder, what did they do with the bodies? (x2)
