"From A Photograph" as written by and Chris Whitley....
Baby got a gun, how's she to know?
I already see the ghosts
Everywhere I go

She don't know that
I don't mind
If angry she'll be fine
But if she cry, please don't let me know

Well I seen her with her piece today
Never missed you more
Seeing you that way
The phantom around my bed

Now I'm sleeping with the dead
Baby's got a gun, I'm bound to go
Gods above and underground
While the ghosts go back and forth

Through town
They wander around outside
They don't know there's nowhere to hide
Baby got a gun, I'm bound the go
Gone, gone, gone

    General CommentJust heard this beautiful song on shuffle in my car. Fantastic! I miss him so much. Have every albums and some bootleg stuff that's tasty. Saw him many times and met him once in Boulder. I wish I could offer some intricate insight to his poetry but he was so inside himself it's always hard to decipher. This song sounds like a suicide that reflects on the emmotions of others afterwards. I don't know. Beautiful song. Thanks Chris.
