I have a little ghost
He bangs around all night
He don’t mean no harm
He’s been here all my life

Go away little ghost
Don’t bother me no more
I swear that I
Will listen to your song tomorrow

Left him on the church doorstep
He followed me back home
He trailed me to Chicago
Where I came to be alone

The gypsy on North Avenue
She tried to set him free
If he flew away
How lonely I would be
