The Ghost of Johnny Cash

APPEARS ON


JOHN CARTER TOLD ME HE SAW HER
OUTSIDE HIS WINDOW DANCING ALONE ONE NIGHT
HE GOT THE FEELING SHE WAS DANCING WITH HIS FATHER
WHEN HE ASKED HER SHE TOLD HIM HE WAS RIGHT

WHEN LORETTA LYNN GOES DANCING
WITH THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH
FATHER TIME TAKES FOREVER AND MAKES IT LOOK
LIKE LESS THAN A LIGHTNING FLASH
VIOLINS BOW INTO FIDDLES TWO ICONIC CYMBALS CRASH
WHEN LORETTA LYNN GOES DANCING WITH THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH

THEY CALLED HER COAL MINER’S DAUGHTER
THE MAN IN BLACK WAS WHAT THEY CALLED HIM
SHE COME FROM OLD BUTCHER HOLLER
HE COULD HEAR THAT TRAIN A COMIN
COMING DOWN A BEND

WHEN LORETTA LYNN GOES DANCING
WITH THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH
FATHER TIME TAKES FOREVER AND MAKES IT LOOK
LIKE LESS THAN A LIGHTNING FLASH
VIOLINS BOW INTO FIDDLES TWO ICONIC CYMBALS CRASH
WHEN LORETTA LYNN GOES DANCING WITH THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH

LIKE A SONG INTO THE ETHER
LIKE A SOUL INTO THE LIGHT
JOHN CARTER TOLD ME HE SAW HER
SHE WAS OUT THERE DANCING AGAIN
THAT VERY NEXT NIGHT

WHEN LORETTA LYNN GOES DANCING
WITH THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH
FATHER TIME TAKES FOREVER AND MAKES IT LOOK
LIKE LESS THAN A LIGHTNING FLASH
VIOLINS BOW INTO FIDDLES TWO ICONIC CYMBALS CRASH
WHEN LORETTA LYNN GOES DANCING WITH THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH
THE GHOST OF JOHNNY CASH
