Rider Ghost ( lyrics)
Rider Ghost is an older number from my big pile of songs I've written over the years. ( it is also on an older album of mine called Comes and Goes...and has a really different feel to it) I wrote the song during a dry spell from Gigs, music business, and even writing. I got pretty discouraged about the idea of making art into business, and decided to just give up my aspirations to get better known in the world. Though creating is an amazing gift, it is also a burden. This song is the first song that burst out of me, and I think it showed me what will happen when I try to "quit"...
RIDER GHOST ( Amelia White)
Who's that rider ghost coming down the road?
who's that rider ghost heading towards my house?
mamma we don't want him here, Daddy make him go,
lock the door and light the fire bright.
Glory Hallelujah send this ghost away I don't wanna see another day hallelujah rider ghost be gone in darkness I will sing this song, I will sing this song
darkest rider ghost coming in my house
deep dark magic is swirling 'round my bed
coldest wind is blowing here, embers have burned out
im down on my knees begging for the light
big chill running up my backbone embers have gone white
i'm down on my knees, down on my knees
who's that rider ghost coming in my house?
who's that rider ghost?
