about

Our friend, neighbor and brilliant screenwriter, Rick Flynn, wrote the lyrics for this haunting and atmospheric song.

lyrics

GHOSTS – R. Flynn and I. Meadows

Jesse’s boy was tired and cranky
So she sent him out in the yard
She’d been separating keepsakes
From all those things you can’t discard
Like that bolo tie from Reno
And that medal from the war
All the things you can’t see coming
Are the things you can’t ignore

CHORUS
Say goodbye to Sweet Virginia
Say hello to San Antone
It don’t matter much in the long run
Now they’re gone, gone, gone

Frankie’s job it was a hassle
Didn’t turn out like he planned
Summer days they just got longer
And his back it just got tanned
Jesse’s mom she died last winter
In a room just down the hall
So they froze the mortgage payment
What good’s pride before a fall? CHORUS

It was a dream like any other
‘Til the faucets all ran cold.
I was young when I woke up
And by evening I was old. CHORUS
