Lyrics

Do you remember that sunny day
Somewhere in London
In the middle of nowhere
Didn't have nothing to do that day
Didn't want to do nothing anyway

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there's something about you
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
of your precious love
of your precious love

The first time I saw you
Standing in the street
You were so cool you could have
Put out Vietnam
All the girls say "Whats he like?"
I said "He's kind of shy
But that's the kind of girl I am,
He's my kind of guy"

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
of your precious love
of your precious love

I'll build my world around you
I'll bless the day that I found you
I'll stay beside you and I'll never leave
Or tell you all those lies you'd never believe
Uh huh huh

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
of your precious love
of your precious love

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there's something about you
That's the kind of girl I am,
He's my kind of guy
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
I want to be haunted by the ghost
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

Haunted... Haunted... Haunted...
Long years ago I fell in love
With a lady proud and fair
So passionate were she and I
We made fire in the air
I loved her more than life itself
She loved me just the same
And it broke my heart
To think we'd part if she ended the affair

But I was brutal, I was ignorant
I was cruel I was brash
I never gave a damn about
The beauty that I smashed
No sadist I, I took delight
In making my Love cry
Now I'd pray for a single kiss from her
To be lashed and crucified

And now I feel this lady fair
Can never more be mine
Long gone are night in my lonely bed
All suffering and crying
And though I fear that through this life
She'll only call me friend
'Till I'm dead and buried in my grave
My Love will never end
Instrumental
Cracklin' Rosie get on board
We gonna ride till there ain't no more to go
Takin' it slow, lord don't you know
I had me a time with a poor man's lady yeah!

Hitchin' on a twilight train
Ain't nothing here I'd care to take along
'Cept maybe a song to sing when I want
Don't say please to no man for a happy tune

Oh I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me we go in style
Cracklin' Rose you're a store bought woman
You got me like a guitar humin'
Hang on girl,
Our song keeps runnin' on,
Play it now, play it now, play it now my baby

Oh I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
Oh, you know we go in style
Cracklin' Rose you're a store bought woman
You got me like a guitar humin'
Hang on girl,
Our song keeps runnin' on,
Play it now, play it now, play it now my baby

Cracklin' Rosie make me smile
And girl well, if it lasts for an hour, well that's all right
'Cause we got all night to set the world right
Find us a dream that don't ask no questions yeah!

Oh I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
Oh you know we go in style
Cracklin' Rose you're a store bought woman
You got me singing like a guitar humin'
Hang on girl,
'Cause our song keeps runnin' on,
Play it now, play it now, play it now my baby
