The Lyrics

John went back to Ohio
But his swing-state was gone
There were no more voters
They had all gone home
Both Johns had disappeared
From their stumping places
Ohio they had not won
Thank goodness, saving graces
Johns, O, had to go....Ohio

Well John went back to Ohio
But the President had won
Kerry called him and conceded
He called him on the phone
John was stunned and amazed
The exit polls are memories
Campaign has passed
No recounting now, please
John, oh, had to go, Ohio

He left from Ohio
Didn't earn the people's trust
They were split down the middle
Their respect had turned to rust
The folks of Ohio
Had stood in long lines at the polls
Now music fills the air
From Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls
Said, A, O, Oh way to go, Ohio!
