Lyrics

The Ghost of Past Guitars
V1
Pay The fortune teller at the square twenty dollars
She’ll take your hand, she’ll search your soul
Tell me, poor boy, who do you follow
If it’s me you seek, here I am. Take hold

V2
I can see trouble in your eyes, even closed
Beware the ghost of past guitars
If you want the future to be shallow
Then stay your path that’s simple and narrow

Bridge
How slippery the bridge fortune teller
I know what will happen if you do nothing at all
You know better how this ends, where you can go
You look for signs down the hollow

Chorus
Ooh ooh ooh
The ghosts of past guitars
In late night bars
Will leave you scarred

Ooh ooh ooh
The ghosts of past guitars
Are never far
Don’t play it like
The ghost of past guitars

Bridge 2
I heard a voice today above the noise and clatter
I’m surrounded at parties by people that don’t really matter
I dreamed I was in your loving embrace
Your arms open
My back to your chest
With your breath upon my neck
That is, my guitar

Solo

V3
To the sacred mysteries’ fortune, Mary
Is there another life waiting in the balance
What you are holding onto is what you must leave behind, poor boy
Like your brass in pockets and your kaleidoscope designs

V4
Pay The fortune teller at the square if you long
She’ll tell you a story about a guitar and a song.
If the letters mean anything to you, my dear
Then come back next week. The vibrations are strong


Chorus
Ooh ooh ooh
The ghosts of past guitars
In late night bars
Will leave you scarred

Ooh ooh ooh
The ghosts of past guitars
Are never far
Don’t play it like
The ghost of past guitars
