In Skeleton Park
One fine summer evening
The sun teased the dark
Like the last strawberry
I could hear them on the breeze
Hear them moving through the trees
The ghosts of the Rideau Canal start to sing
And patting the grass you said
"Come sit next to me, be my sweetheart"
Over in Skeleton Park
Over in Skeleton Park

In Skeleton Park
I couldn't see anything
A raven took the moon
And tucked it under her wing
I could hear them in the rain
Hear them dripping from the leaves
Widows of the Rideau Canal softly sing
And underneath the trees you said
"Please watch over me, you are my heart"
Over in Skeleton Park
Over in Skeleton Park
Hear them sing

In Skeleton Park
My dreams went a scattering
Multiplying light
For all there was to see
And then in the dawn I wept for all them ghosts
And (?) my broken heart
Over in Skeleton Park
Over in Skeleton Park
Meet me in Skeleton Park
Over in Skeleton Park
Hear them sing
