Ohio
Damien Jurado Lyrics


Out from my window across from the city
I have what's considered a good view
Two blocks from the subway, three from the fountain
Where I walk to break in new shoes

She stands on the sidewalk just waving at taxis
Like horses in parades in passing
I ask where she's headed she tells me,
"Ohio, I've not seen my mother in ages
It's been a long time, a real long time."

Out from my window "How far is Ohio?"
She laughed and pointed out east
She said, "I grew up there with my dear mother
And I haven't seen her since thirteen.

You see, I was taken while she lay sleeping
By my father's hired man
We moved to city so far from my family
I haven't been back there since.
It's been a long time, a real long time."

Out from my window please hear me Ohio
Your daughter wants to come home
She longs to be with you to hug you to kiss you
To never leave her alone

And I've gotten know her to live with to love her
It's hard to see her leave
She belongs to her mother and the state of Ohio
I wish she belonged to me

See you sometime, see you sometime

Out from my window across from the city
I have what's considered a good view
Two blocks from the subway, three from the fountain
Where I walk to break in new shoes

She stands on the sidewalk just waving at taxis
Like horses in parades in passing
I ask where she's headed she tells me,
"Ohio, I've not seen my mother in ages
It's been a long time, a real long time."

Out from my window "How far is Ohio?"
She laughed and pointed out east
She said, "I grew up there with my dear mother
And I haven't seen her since thirteen.

You see, I was taken while she lay sleeping
By my father's hired man
We moved to city so far from my family
I haven't been back there since.
It's been a long time, a real long time."

Out from my window please hear me Ohio
Your daughter wants to come home
She longs to be with you to hug you to kiss you
To never leave her alone

And I've gotten know her to live with to love her
It's hard to see her leave
She belongs to her mother and the state of Ohio
I wish she belonged to me

See you sometime, see you sometime

[Verse 1]
Out from my window across from the city
I have what's considered a good view
Two blocks from the subway, three from the fountain
Where I walk to break in new shoes
She stands on the sidewalk just waving at taxis
Like horses in parades in passing
I ask where she's headed, she tells me, "Ohio:
I've not seen my mother in ages"

[Chorus]
"It's been a long time, a real long time
A real long time"

[Verse 2]
Out from my window "How far is Ohio?"
She laughed and pointed out east
She said, "I grew up there with my dear mother
And I haven't seen her since thirteen
You see, I was taken while she lay sleeping
By my father's hired men
We moved to the city so far from our family
I haven't been back there since"

[Chorus]
"It's been a long time, a real long time
A real long time"


[Verse 3]
Out from my window please hear me, Ohio
Your daughter wants to come home
She longs to be with you, to hug you, to kiss you
To never leave her alone
And I've gotten to know her, to live with, to love her
It's hard to see her leave
She belongs to her mother and the state of Ohio
I wish she belonged to me

[Outro]
See you sometime, see you sometime
See you sometime

The pain this song gives me is so immense. It reminds me of my ex, she was not a bad ex though. We had been together for over 4 years. She one day told me she had to move to Ohio. I'm in new York. She told me we would have to separate. You've never felt pain like that unless you've had your heart forcefully ripped from the person you love... I think of her everyday and almost come to tears
