As the autumn wind whispers through the tall and lonely pines
And the hour of fate is drawing close at hand
Freebird falling from the sky
Brings a bitter end to another southern man
But there’s a grey ghost runnin’ through the night
An echo of the sadness and the pain
Grey ghost runnin’ through the night
The man is gone but his spirit will remain

Fast like them, the music is just a thin disguise
For the heartache and the fear of growin’ old
Without the one that means the most it makes you realise
That you’re the one that’s left out in the cold
There’s a grey ghost runnin’ through the night
An echo of the sadness and the pain
Grey ghost runnin’ through the night
The man is gone but his spirit will remain

Dealer of death has dealt the losing hand
And it’s a cold fact the cards don’t ever lie
Through the fire dream of things to come is such a ??? pain
When the memories are all that’s left behind
There’s a grey ghost runnin’ through the night
An echo of the sadness and the pain
Grey ghost runnin’ through the night
The man is gone but his spirit will remain

    General CommentThe Henry Paul Band means alot to me. I was a typical teen African American in the late 70s whos only records consisted of what was popular according to Jet Magazine and my Beatles collection. My freshman year in college, my roommate was a huge southern rock fan, and the first band he played was the HPB. This album impressed the hell out of me and opened my eyes to the fact that a song doesn't have to have a beat to and a disco ball to kick ass. I called this year the year of my musical awakening. Suddenly my Barry White and Sugarhill Gang had company in Marshall Tucker, The Allman Brothers, Skynryd, etc. Before you knew it, I was into jazz, hard rock, etc and now my music collection has over 2500 CDs/Albums of just about every genre. And it all started by listening to Grey Ghost by the Henry Paul Band.
