  1. Ghost Town

From the recording Ghost Town

Lyrics

In an October rain I’m soaked to the bone, a cold wind cuts through my coatIn a whispering wind I take a walk downtownPast an old railway station down by the Cheat River, that’s washed so many awayIt was the flood of ’85 that took ten people’s lives
There’s a ghost in this townThere’s a ghost in this townThere’s a ghost in this townOhhh
I’m standing on the corner of 12th street and Main, down by the old funeral homeThe puddles in the street they don’t reflect very muchSome roads head north to where the cold winds blow, through towns that echo the pastSome memories live on with no one around
There’s a ghost in this townThere’s a ghost in this townThere’s a ghost in this townOhhh
Now old people stay where they’ve lived all their lives, living on faith and beliefWas the restless and young that couldn’t hold on so one by one they’d leaveNow I’m standing in the rain on old railroad tracks, where trains used to run on timeThrough the progress of man they stripped all the land and took all the coal from these mines
There’s a ghost in this townThere’s a ghost in this townThere’s a ghost in this townOhhh
