  1. Ghosts of Kansas

Lyrics

Ghosts of Kansas, by Dennis James

Tired eyes chasing down the lines
Of a midnight blacktop highway on a runaway drive
Radio coming on strong
South of Wichita where the ghosts ride along
Just looking to stay outta the rain

Thirteen hours locked behind the wheel
Snowblind and outta my mind from the way you make me feel
Ain’t no use looking for the truth
Got a broke down shattered heart with nothing left to lose
Just looking for something to ease the pain

Chorus:
Something to rock my soul like an old gypsy song
Talking ‘bout the kind you never heard
And when it plays I’ll turn it up too loud
And I’m gonna sing every goddamn word

I see your face hidden in the starry skies
Past the place where the headlight shine dies
I shout your name straight into the wind
Where the echos howl back through the places that you’ve been
Places where your shadow left a stain

Dark as wine like the eyes of the dirty south
I drank your lies as they tumbled from your mouth
Your sweet soul twisted and never missed a beat
While my dancing heart lay there helpless at your feet

Rows of crosses bringing me to my knees
While your devil’s laugh, well it hangs there in the breeze
You smile at me and say you mean me no harm
While you twirl a chain with my name on a charm
But those ghosts of Kansas are gonna sing

Chorus:
Something to rock my soul like an old gypsy song
Talking ‘bout the kind you never heard
And when it plays I’ll turn it up too loud
And I’m gonna sing every goddamn word
I’m gonna sing every goddamn word
I’m gonna sing every goddamn word
