Intro: Em Em7 Dsus2 Em ... C Em C Em...

Em              D      Em
Swing swing, gallows swing
C                     Em
From anger back to sorrow
D                     Em
Morning gets what midnight brings
      G              D
And I’ll be dead tomorrow
               Em
Just another ghost

Em                     D  Em    C                Em
My wife left me last wintertime to join another man
D                   C           G                 D
I lost her love forever and I lost my mind right then
         Em                 G                D              Em
When I tried but couldn’t picture her sweet face inside my head
         C             G                 D                  Em C Dsus2 Em C Em C Em
I could only see her lover’s grin, it’s true I killed him dead

 Em                        D    Em   C                 Em
But I’ve always been an honest man, as crystal as the sea
D                      C                         G                      D
I’ve always said when I’ve done wrong, and I’ve said when wrong’s done me
      Em            G              D                     Em
So listen to my warning though I know it might sound strange
       C             G             D              Em C Dsus2 Em C Em C Em
To those who cast condoning eyes upon me when I hang

 Em                  D           Em      C                       Em
And let me tell you what I’ve learned, what my guilty mind has seen
D                    C                   G                 D
Of life and then of death and then how ghosts get stuck between
            Em                 G                   D                   Em
There’s no slamming doors, no rattling chains, no long black veils at night
           C                G                        D                  Em C Dsus2 Em C Em C Em
But you’d wish there was cause then you might could die to put things right

Em                         D   Em         C                 Em
But ghosts have got no bodies left, and ghosts have got no will
               D              C                 G                    D
There just etchings on your conscience by the hands that had them killed
          Em                 G               D               Em
And the world it all looks yellow now, and every breath is foul
          C                  G                     D              Em C Dsus2 Em C Em C Em
And the water tastes like rancid oil, and the mockingbirds just howl

Em                       D        Em         C                Em
You can never touch someone you love, it’ll burn them if you try
         D                C                        G                 D
And the face inside the mirror stares back with goldfish bowls for eyes
          Em            G               D            Em
And the only dream you ever have is of lying there awake
          C          G         D                        Em  
And it never rains upon your head, it spits into your face

Em             C     G     D            Em
A ghost has haunted me -- and worn me thin
C          G               D
I got what I deserved a thousand times again
Em         C  G     D           Em
Oh listen please -- my final words
C                   G                    D               Em
Before you bring yourself to watch the final length of cord

Em                            D          Em         C               Em
Cause ghosts don’t die when hands take hands, and ghosts are not released
D                       C              G                 D               
It’s dust to dust and ash to ash, or beast and back to beast
    Em                 G                     D              Em
I hope your heart is large and that there’s room enough in you
          C                  G                   D                    Em C Dsus2 Em C Em C Em
For the ghost you choose to make of me and the ghost that haunts me, too

Em             D       Em
Swing swing, gallows swing
C                     Em
From anger back to sorrow
D                    Em
Hide your eyes and wash your wings
        G             D
Cause I’ll be dead tomorrow
                 Em
Just another ghost
