Tell me a ghost story tonight, my darlin',
The one about a lover lost at sea;
You know the one I mean, where she goes crazy,
When he keeps showing up in every dream.

Tell me a story that will chill my marrow,
Tell me a tale to make my skin crawl back;
Something to take my mind off what I'm thinking,
Something to save me from this heart attack.

I thought I heard a scream,
I thought I heard a shot,
The rain was cryin' foul,
wind warning don't get caught;
I thought I saw you run,
the moon looked the other way,
Now here you sit, your hair is wet,
your eyes are red,
And I am dying.

There must be some way to make this ending easy,
Must be some way to bring the hero home;
A twist of narrative no one sees coming,
A blend of mystery and magic bones.

I need to hear your version right now, darlin',
While everything is fresh inside your head;
And every smell still makes your lower lip quiver,
Tell me, especially, the parts I dread.

I thought I heard a scream,
I thought I heard a shot,
The rain was cryin' foul,
wind warning don't get caught;
I thought I saw you run,
the moon looked the other way,
Now here you sit, your hair is wet,
your eyes are red,
And I am dying.

I thought I heard a scream,
I thought I heard a shot,
The rain was cryin' foul,
wind warning don't get caught;
I thought I saw you run,
the moon looked the other way,
Now here you sit, your hair is wet,
your eyes are red,
And I am dying.

Tell me a ghost story tonight, my darlin',
The one about a lover lost at sea;
You know the one I mean, where she goes crazy,
When he keeps showing up in every dream.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah.
