Very nice story song. I hear Gordon Lightfoot influences here. Nice chord changes and very soulful lyrics from start to finish. Catchy tune.

Wow! Great song! This is really a good story with a great tune.

Lyrics

BLACK GHOST
(STEVE DAFOE 2005)
(COPYRIGHTED)



JUST BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR IN 1855
RAILROADS SPRUNG ACROSS
THE MISSOURI COUNTRYSIDE
THE FIRST TRAIN DOWN THE LINE
THEY CALLED THE BLACK GHOST
AND PEOPLE ALL GATHERED AROUND
JUST TO WATCH HER ENGINE'S SMOKE

AND I CAN HEAR THE VOICES
OF THE PEOPLE AS THEY PASS
I CAN ALMOST SEE THE BLACK GHOST COMIN'
DOWN THE RAILROAD TRACK


AND OUT OF ST. LOUIS ON A DARK NOVEMBER NITE
THE BLACK GHOST LEFT FOR GASCONADE
WITH HER HEADLITES SHINING BRIGHT
THE TRAIN FULL OF FESTIVE FOLKS
THE FOOD...THE BOOZE..THE BAND
EVERY SEAT WAS TAKEN
THERE WAS NOT ONE PLACE TO STAND


AND I CAN HEAR THE VOICES
OF PEOPLE AS THEY PASS
I CAN ALMOST SEE THE BLACK GHOST COMIN'
DOWN THE RAILROAD TRACK


WATCH HER GO!!!!




AND I CAN HEAR THE VOICES
OF THE PEOPLE AS THEY PASS
I CAN ALMOST SEE THE BLACK GHOST COMIN'
DOWN THE RAILROAD TRACK


THAT TRACK WAS BUILT ON SHIFTING SILT
AND THE BLACK GHOST NEVER SLOWED
WELL THEY PULLED THE BODIES FROM THE RIVER
AND THEY LINED THEM IN A ROOM


AND I CAN HEAR THE VOICES
OF THE PEOPLE AS THEY PASS
I CAN ALMOST SEE THE BLACK GHOST COMIN'
DOWN THE RAILROAD TRACK



AND I CAN HEAR THE VOICES
OF THE PEOPLE AS THEY PASS
I CAN ALMOST SEE THE BLACK GHOST COMIN'
DOWN THE RAILROAD TRACK
