Lonesome Ghost Blues - Lyrics

Mmmmmm.

Tombstone is my pillow, cold ground is my bed.
Tombstone is my pillow, cold ground is my bed.
The blue skies is my blanket, and the moonlight is my spread.

A black cat and a owl, comes and keep my company.
A black cat and a owl, comes and keep my company.
They understands my sorrow, and sympathize with me.

I feel cold arms around me, ice lips upon my cheek.
I feel cold arms all around me, ice lips upon my cheek.
And though there your heart whisper, and I can hear her plainly speak.

The graveyard is so lonely, times some I hear her moan.
Mmmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmm.
And the ghosts is all so lonesome, please don't leave me here alone.

I'm goin' to the graveyard, and stay the whole night through.
I'm goin' to the graveyard, and stay the whole night through.
Hear my dead lover callin' me, and these lonesome ghost blues.

Writer(s): Lonnie Johnson, Andy Razaf
