[Intro]
Dm   C   G   F   C   G
......................

Dm                  C            G
The bell tolls noon on 12th and Vine
F                  C        G
 And I still need this overtime
                   Dm
'Cause I'm over myself
              C
I'm over the hill
              G
I'm Over-the-Rhine
                   F                       Dm
For the millionth time, for the millionth time

[Verse 1]
Dm               C                    G
 I park at this spot and stare at the water
F                    G
 Try to remember I'm somebody's father
Dm              C              G
 Dawn commute across Covington Bridge
               F                       G
Get lost in my head, just looking at it
                     Dm
Now I'm looking at you
C                       G
Through the hole in my sheet
F                 C        G
 And I still need this overtime

[Chorus 1]
                   Dm
'Cause I'm over myself
              C 
I'm over the hill
                G
I'm Over-the-Rhine
                   F     C                 G
For the millionth time, for the millionth time
          Dm
I'm overspent
      C
Overworked
         G
Overlooked
               F
I'm Over-the-Rhine
         C         G
For the millionth time

[Interlude]
Em   C   G   Am

[Verse 2]
Dm                C                G
 Cut through Ault Park 'cause it's safe now
F               C            G  
 I stalk the streets in my nightgown
Dm               G
 The Ghost of Cincinnati slinks past
F                                  G
I smell your coffee, can you taste that?
Dm                 C           G
My lip on your cup won't even feel real
F                   C           G
 I'm rushing there, all the way there

[Chorus 2]
                   Dm
'Cause I'm over myself
              C 
I'm over the hill
               G
I'm Over-the-Rhine
                  F     C                 G
For the millionth time, for the millionth time
          Dm
I'm overspent
      C
Overworked
       G
Overlooked
               F
I'm Over-the-Rhine
        C         G
For the millionth time
                Dm
I feel over my head
          C
Over the hill
           G
I'm over myself
               F  
I'm Over-the-Rhine
C                 G
For the millionth time
[Interlude]
Em   C   G   Am
...............

[Bridge]
Em
 Stalk the spring grove
C
 Rot in my old clothes
G
 Pardon Pete Rose
      Am
And wonder why the evil grows
Em
 Now I'm in the big time?
C
 Not a suicide
     G
I'd stalk the streets
           Am
And haunt you from the northside
Em
 I pace the hedge row
C
 Dodge the low blows
G
 Play the Fountain Square
     Am
And wonder where my cousins go
Em
 I haunt the northside
C
 Stop the traffic lights
G
 Cycle up Price Hill
      Am
And stare up at the Pepsi sign

[Outro]
Em
 I'm overextended
C
 I'm over it all
G
 I'm Over-the-Rhine
Am
 For the millionth time
Em
 I'm overextended
C
 I'm over it all
G
 I'm Over-the-Rhine
Am                      Em   C  
 For the millionth time,......
                  G     Am   Em
for the millionth time.......
