第一次听over the rhine纯属机缘巧合，大概4年前在百度MP3上搜索Professional时无意中搜到了这首Professional Daydreamer。按下播放键的那一刻，就被这唱腔深深吸引。苍凉而性感，一种难言的交错感觉。
Hello Ohio, the back roads.
I know Ohio, like the back of my hands.
Alone Ohio, where the river bends.
And it's strange to see your story ends.
In my life I've seen a thousand dreams
Through the threshers all torn to pieces
And the land lay bare
Someone turned a profit there
And a good son lost his life in a strip pit
When the sun went down we would all leave town
And light our fires in Egypt Bottom
And the reservoir was just as good for Joni
'Cause we knew we would
Dream outloud in the night air
Holly said, Don't go inside the children's home
Mary said, Don't leave your man alone
Valerie was singing to the radio
It was summertime in '83
We were burnin' out at the rubber tree
Wonderin' what in the world
Would make all this worthwhile
And if I knew then I was older then
Would I see regret to the last mile
