"Rock N Roll Ghost" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Well you know
And you go
When I'm alone I have no cause
To think about the shit we used to know
Made of snow

Well you came
And you stayed
No one here to raise a toast
Be my guest and I will be a host
To a rock 'n' roll ghost

Well, you said,
"He's better off dead"
You think that I might have heard a word
But I was much too young
And much too cool for words
Look at me now

No one here to raise a toast
Take me by the hand, man, raise a toast
A rock 'n' roll ghost
To a rock 'n' roll ghost

We don't know until we're gone
There's no one here to raise a toast
I look into the mirror and I see
A rock 'n' roll ghost
A rock 'n' roll ghost

    General CommentAbout Bob Stinson ? Made Paul look at himself as well ? About the Rock'n'roll lifestyle and how empty and alone leaves one at the end of the day ?

    General CommentHaunting song for sure. I hear a lot of regret in Paul's voice. This song has to be referencing a number of things: Bob Stinson (who was not dead at that point but had been kicked out of the band a few years earlier), the wild but ultimately vacuous lifestyle that comes with being in a rock n roll band, and perhaps even regret about choosing rock n roll for one's livelihood.
