Still More Things To Love About Ohio

Third in an occasional series promoting a positive message about our state.

Bands love us. Lambchop and Over The Rhine named albums after us. Modest Mouse, Damien Jurado and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young all wrote songs titled “Ohio.” (Forget the context of that last one.) 

Perhaps it was this very sign which inspired Modest Mouse to pen the lyrics below:

ohio1

One hand clapping, awake but napping
Rows of lights to illuminate lines
Why don’t they turn them off and let us see night
Drove crazed grooming my lies
You can’t look in on one way eyes, Ohio (x10)

Ohio: One hand clapping, awake but napping.
