about

This is a ghost story and a murder ballad.

lyrics

Ghost of a girl
In a white cotton dress
She’s out in my yard
Floating just above the grass

She says that she loves me
Calls me by my true name
Says boy don’t make promises
That you don’t mean

Now, there are things in this world
That I don’t understand
How to love just one woman
When a boy becomes a man

I’m talking in circles
I’m tracing a map
The darkest of riddles
Won’t assuage my regrets

It’s alright
It’s alright
Hear ‘em whisper
In the dark

It’s alright
It’s alright
Hear ‘em whisper

I had a rich wife
She gave me a son
I loved a poor girl,
She was a passionate one

My poor girl took ill
So I pleaded with my wife
I’d give up my mistress
If she’d only save her life

My wife she agreed
She’d spare no expense
My poor girl, she died
I suspect not by chance

My wife, she died too
Some say by her own hand
I can’t really say
I don’t recall those events

It’s alright
It’s alright
Hear ‘em whisper
In the dark

It’s alright
It’s alright
Hear ‘em whisper

The graves are both empty
Where my loves were to lie
I stole away the bodies
In the middle of the night

To a hole in the mountain
Where the light it don’t go
Sometimes I crawl inside
here ‘em whisper,

“Welcome home.”
