Poughkeepsie
Over The Rhine
written by Karin Bergquist


[Capo 1]

G                        Cadd9
I thought I'd go up Poughkeepsie, look out o'er the Hudson,
G                         D      Dsus D
and I'd throw my body down on the river.
G                        Cadd9
And I'd know no more sorrow, I'd fly like the sparrow
G                        D        G
and I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
D                        Cadd9  G
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
D                    Cadd9  G
I'd take to the sky with all my might.

No more drowning in my sorrow,
Cadd9
No more drowning in my fright,
G                        D        G       Cadd9
I'd just ride on the backs of the angels tonight.


There are those who know sorrow and those who must borrow
and those whose lot in life is sweet.
Well I'm drunk on self-pity, scorned all that's been given me,
I would drink from a bottle labeled Sure Defeat.
I'd ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
I'd take to the sky with all my might.
No more drowning in my sorrow,
No more drowning in my fright,
I'd just ride on the backs of the angels tonight.


Then the skies, they fell open and my eyes were opened
to a world of hope falling at my feet.
Now I've no more or less than anyone else has,
what I have is a gift of life I can't repeat.
So I go up Poughkeepsie, look out o'er the Hudson
and I cast my worries to the sky.
Now I still know sorrow, but I can fly like the sparrow
'cause I ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
I ride on the backs of the angels tonight.
I take to the sky with all their might.
No more drowning in my sorrow,
No more drowning in my fright,
          G                        D   Dsus D      Cadd9        G
I'll just ride on the backs of the angels     each night.  (Ooh)
