"Jerome" as written by and Kevin Neil/robertson Hearn....
When you walk in Jerome
You never walk alone
'Cause the ghosts dance all around you
All around you in Jerome

Take the Bloody Basin Road
Through Black Water Canyon
Up the twisted road
To Mingus Mountain

Then you'll know you are home
In the ghost-town called Jerome
Where the ghosts dance all around you
All around you in Jerome

Bar-brawlers and drifters
Gamblers and gun-fighters
Ladies of the evening, and copper miners
They kept the jailhouse filled
Till it fell down the hill

When you walk in Jerome
You'll never walk alone
'Cause the ghosts dance all around you
All around you in Jerome
All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
They're all around you in Jerome

    General CommentA song about Jerome, Arizona, obviously (considering the references to Mingus Mountain - a mountain near the town - and to the jailhouse "falling" down a hill which happened in the town after a mine blast). Interesting, and a really obscure topic for a song. Love it!

    My OpinionHa. I absolutely love the staggered, parrot-like background voices after he sings "Mountain" and "miners." BNL are priceless.
