"Poughkeepsie" by Over the Rhine
written by Karen Bergquist

capo 1st fret
you may want to add Am7 in C sections for variety

[G tacet]

I thought I'd go [G] up Poughkeepsie look out [C] o'er the Hudson and I'd
[G] throw my body down on the [D] river. And I'd [G] know no more sorrow
I'd fly [C] like the sparrow and I'd ride [G] on the backs of the [D]
angels [G] tonight.

Chorus
I'd ride [D] on the backs of the [C] angels to[G]night
I'd take [D] to the sky with all [C] of my [G] might
[G] No more drowning in my sorrows, no more drowning in my [C] fright
I'd just ride [G] on the backs of the [D] angels to[G]night

[C]

There are [G] those who know sorrow and [C] those who must borrow
and those [G] whose lot in life is [D] sweet. Well I'm [G] drunk on
self-pity, scorned [C] all that's been given me, I would [G] drink

repeat chorus

[C]

Then the [G] skies they fell open and [C] my eyes were opened to a
[G] world of hope falling at my [D] feet. Now I've [G] no more or less
than [C] anyone else has, what I [G] have is a gift of life I [D]
can't re[G]peat.
So I [G] go up Poughkeepsie look out [C] o'er the Hudson and I
[G] cast my worries to the [D] sky. Now I [G] still know sorrow but I
can fly [C] like the sparrow cause I ride [G] on the backs of
the [D] angels [G] tonight.

repeat chorus except last line is
I'll just ride [G] on the backs of the [D] angels each [C] night
end on [G tacet]
