Ghost Blues chords
Loudon Wainwright III (album version)

A E 4x

A      E   A         E
My Old dog misses me so
A                   E         B7               E
To the beach or the dog park, he don't want to go
       A          E              A          E
No, he lies there waiting at the foot of my bed
           A               E          B7         E
Because he knows I'm right there even though I'm dead

A        E        A             E
You late husband, that would be me
          A       E               B7        E    
I've been gone so long I'm just a faint memory
             A          E               A               E
I've been disparaged in passing by your friends late at night
A              E              B7           E
I blew out the candles on em, it served em right

    A          E       A          E
The day that I died, I knew I was toast
               A                B7       E
Next day I was hanging out with Marley's ghost
A         E              A         E
Help this father, he's a friend of mine
B7
That old Cain can't keep from crying

      A        E                 A           E
At my memorial service there was quite a turnout
A            E                  B7        E
Some stayed away, hey, what was that all about?
                    A      E           A
Tell me, didn't she love me, didn't he care?
       E          B7          E
Nobody saw me out I was right there (I was doing a head count)

A E A E A E B7 E

        A          E                  A          E
Now I'm out of the picture, yeah, I'm off of the hook
       A        E              B7          E
Just a chuck of time, that was all that it took
         A           E      A         E
Was it a shot from a gun, a slip of a knife?
A                 E                   B7              E
I don't know what killed me, Lord, it might have been life

  A         E        A            E
I had a few children, wrote a few songs
      A          E           B7        E
I got some of it right and a lot of it wrong
  A            E             A            E
I bought a few houses, a few boats, a few cars
B7
Being a ghost you might as well be on Mars

Cause you're so far off

A E A E A E B7 E

A       E         A                E
Being a ghost is, you're just in between
A        E                        B7   E
Each and every day of the year is Halloween, yeah
       A        E                    A      E
You're hanging around but you're not really there
       A        E             B7        E
You're hovering over your own old easy chair

            A          E            A             E
Lord, I was hoping for heaven, that would've been swell
      A       E                           B7       E
Cause being a ghost, Lord, it's just like being in hell
       A                 E             A            E
You're hungry and you're tired and you can't get no rest
              A          E        B7               E
An though I'd settle for heaven, oblivion would be best

          A       E     A        E
I've been flying around rattling chains
             A               B7         E
Appearing in mirrors just to make you insane
             A              E
Making those noises in your house late at night, yeah
B7
I got to haunt you even though it ain't right

A      E   A         E
My Old dog misses me so
A                   E         B7               E
To the beach or the dog park, he don't want to go
       A          E              A          E
No, he lies there waiting at the foot of my bed
           A               E          B7         E
Because he knows I'm right there even though I'm dead . . .
