Lost Immagrants - Ghosts You Can See

Capo 2

G
I worked the oil rigs outside of Corpus
                        D
Fried up fish in New Orleans

Made a hundred runs to Tulsa
                               G
No place in Texas that I ain’t seen

Met my true love out down in Houston
She had her eye on someone else
Caught her and my brother with their boots on
Now I’ll spend life in this prison cell

       C              G
If you see me walking your way
             C             G
Please don’t stop and pity me
           C               G
No need to bother or feign interest
        D                        G
I’m the ghost, the ghost you can see

I married young at age sixteen
Move to the country, out on a farm
I bore four sons, kept the house clean
Never thought my husband’d do no harm

He was restless, I could tell
More and more he strayed from home
Then came the lawyers, the house to sell
They took my boys and left me all alone

If you see me walking your way
Keep on moving, just let me be
No need to stop or acknowledge
I’m the ghost, the ghost you can see

I had a good job and slaved away
Working for a Wall Street company
But the market, it turned up sideways
Lost that good job and my family

Now I’m living out on the streets
Under bridges -- wherever I can find
Hollowed, broken, I can barely eat
Give me a dollar so I don’t lose my mind

If you see me walking your way
Go ahead and cross the street
I’ll be in heaven long before you
I’m the ghost, the ghost you can see

If you see me walking your way
Know that hell ain't go nothing on me
I'll be in heaven long before you
I'm the ghost, the ghost you can see
