Pretenders – My City Was Gone lyrics
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
Way to go, Ohio

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
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The farms of Ohio had been replaced by shopping malls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
Way to go, Ohio
