My City Was Gone Lyrics

Artist: The Pretenders


I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY CITY WAS GONE
THERE WAS NO TRAIN STATION
THERE WAS NO DOWNTOWN
SOUTH HOWARD HAD DISAPPEARED
ALL MY FAVORITE PLACES
MY CITY HAD BEEN PULLED DOWN
REDUCED TO PARKING SPACES
A, O, WAY TO GO OHIO

WELL I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY FAMILY WAS GONE
I STOOD ON THE BACK PORCH
THERE WAS NOBODY HOME
I WAS STUNNED AND AMAZED
MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
SLOWLY SWIRLED PAST
LIKE THE WIND THROUGH THE TREES
A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO

I WENT BACK TO OHIO
BUT MY PRETTY COUNTRYSIDE
HAD BEEN PAVED DOWN THE MIDDLE
BY A GOVERNMENT THAT HAD NO PRIDE
THE FARMS OF OHIO
HAD BEEN REPLACED BY SHOPPING MALLS
AND MUZAK FILLED THE AIR
FROM SENECA TO CUYAHOGA FALLS
SAID, A, O, OH WAY TO GO OHIO

by Neil Peart on 11/30/2009 10:04pm
He's right though. Rush does rule.

Got to love Chrissy. Remember the Bucket Shop in Highland Square.

Rush (Limbaugh)'s opening song for his radio show.

Indiana is next.

This is definitely one of my all time favorites of the 80's. The lyrics and music are hard to beat and it plays real well when working out on the treadmill. The only downside is the truth in what she's referring to.

Not bad for a one-chord song. A little monotonous, but it shows what you can do.
by Geddy lee on 1/25/2011 11:20am
Not bad but still basically shit
by Geeky Grandma on 4/6/2011 5:59pm
Chrissy hits it!

People from Ohio these are racist suburbanites, totally lame and despised all around the US.
by Chrissy on 3/28/2014 7:07am
People from Ohio are racist suburbanites, totally lame and despised all around the US. Why are there so many of them in New York City? They should stay home in their white cornfed cul de sacs.
by Marc from Ohio on 5/11/2014 10:15am
Hey Chrissy, you shouldn't generalize about people from a geographical area based on some limited exposure you may have had. As your post clearly shows, closed minded idiots can be found everywhere.
by Bernie Kosar on 5/12/2014 1:19pm
"Chrissie Hynde, originally from Akron, Ohio, moved to London in 1973 ... "

Ever hear of Wikipedia Norm?
