  • When you walk in Jerome
    You never walk alone
    'Cause the ghosts dance all around you
    All around you in Jerome

    Take the Bloody Basin Road
    Through Black Water Canyon
    Up the twisted road
    To Mingus Mountain

    Then you'll know you are home
    In the ghost-town called Jerome
    Where the ghosts dance all around you
    All around you in Jerome

    Bar-brawlers and drifters
    Gamblers and gun-fighters
    Ladies of the evening, and copper miners
    They kept the jailhouse filled
    Till it fell down the hill

    When you walk in Jerome
    You'll never walk alone
    'Cause the ghosts dance all around you
    All around you in Jerome
    All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
    All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
    All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
    All around you in Jerome, in Jerome
    They're all around you in Jerome Writer/s: ED ROBERTSON, JIM CREEGGAN, KEVIN HEARN, KEVIN NEIL HEARN, TYLER STEWART

  • J Savage from Jerome, AzI would like to know if the writer traveled to Jerome, because he has nailed it in his song.
  • Sarah from Marina Del Rey, CaIt's a real place! It's about Jerome, AZ, which is a small ghost/mining town up on a steep hillside. I grew up right next to this place and used to take field trips in grade school up there!
