Between the graveyard and the railroad tracks
I live alone here in the shotgun shack
The kids walk past and they all look with fear
And I'm the only ghost in here
I tune into the radio
God I wish I had a bag of bones
So I can dance to the ragtime show
Well I got nobody but I still got soul
And I'm old man cabbage and you should know me well
Yeah I keep them all awake here when I scream and I yell
It sounds like
[Vocalization]
Unpacked my bags and moved in just last night
I'm just a traveler in need of a place to hide
And then I heard the whisper in my ear say
"I'm the only ghost in here"
It came through on the radio
So loud that it chilled my bones
The vaudeville and a ragtime show
I'm a young man livin' with an old man's soul now
That old man cabbage he was found here dead but
I still hear him singing while I'm lying in bed
He's singing
[Vocalization]
I'll take your body
I will take your hands
I'll wear your skin and I will make your plans
Make your worries all but disappear
Now I'm still the only ghost in here
I tune into the radio
I turn it up and then I shake my bones
A vaudeville and a ragtime show
Still a young man livin' with an old man's soul now
I'm old man cabbage
I'm alive and well
Sent that young man singin' with the hounds of hell
Say
[Vocalization]
