Ghost On The Canvas
Glen Campbell
Ghost On The Canvas Album 2011

Standard Tuning

Intro (telegraph sound) A  Amaj7 F#m C#m (2X)

Verse 1

I know a place between 
Amaj7                        A  Amaj7 F#m C#m
life and death for you and me. 
A                     Amaj7
Best take hold on the threshold 
         B   B7
of eternity. 

Chorus 1

            D                 A
And see the ghost on the canvas. 
D                   A
People don't see us. 
D                 A
Ghost on the canvas. 
B               B7  
people don't know, 
F#m          D               A  Amaj7 F#m C#m
when they're looking at souls.

Verse 2

In between here and there, 
Amaj7                           A  Amaj7 F#m C#m
there's a place that we can grow. 
A                      Amaj7
Spirits make love in a wheat field, 
      B   B7
with crows. 

Chorus 2

        D              A  
Like a ghost on a canvas. 
D                   A
People don't see them.
D               A
Ghost on a canvas. 
F#m B      D               A  Amaj7 F#m C#m
No,   they never see souls.


Ring around the rosary. 
Pocket full of prosary. 
A                 B
Ashes to ashes we all fall in love with
 ghosts on the canvas.

Verse 3

We dream in color. 
Amaj7                          A  Amaj7 F#m C#m
Others they color their dreams.
A                 Amaj7
Takes one to know one. 
A                   B            B7
Spirit always knows what it sees.

Like a ghost on a canvas.

Never can have us. 
D               A
Ghost on a canvas. 
         F#m B
It's the souls, 
     D              E  B  Esus4  
that makes them go.
             E    B Esus4
People don't know. 
           E    B   Esus4
Looking in souls.
            E    B  Esus4
Better take hold. 
    E   D                 A(one strum) (telegraph sound with wind) 
I'm the ghost on the canvas. 

God Bless Glen Travis Campbell

Great tab! We never truly appreciate the greatness of those around us till they're gone. This is true for me and Glen Campbell. God bless him. Now I'm off to listen to the music and play a little. Thanks Flyinglibra!
