lyrics

I heard him on the road in Texas and Tennessee
I’ve tasted silver, but I’ve never found gold
I felt him on the river in Mississippi
but I never grabbed hold

And now I’m trying to find that ghost in New Mexico
I heard him on the road in Texas and Tennessee
and well I’ve tasted silver, but I’ve never found gold
but I felt him on the river in Mississippi

Now a long time ago, that ghost he disappeared
but I’ve dreamt of him from time to time
and now I’ve found some money, so I’m on the run
just to see what I can find

Now the swamps are calling me down south and a man awaits me there,
but I saw the ghost and he was walking west
so I take the desert highway and I drive through the night
now I’m afraid I’ll never rest

And sometimes I think the road’s that ghost
sometimes I think that ghost is me
but I went down to the river and I washed myself clean
and still I dream that he is waiting on me

Let him set me free, let him set me free
and let me sing the songs that that old ghost seeks
Will the roses bloom for me there
among the desert peaks?
