  • I hear the sound of your guitar
    Comin' from the mystic far
    Stone and the gravel in your voice
    Come in my dreams and I rejoice

    It's your ghost moving through the night
    Your spirit filled with light
    I need, need you by my side
    Your love and I'm alive

    I can feel the blood shiver in my bones
    I'm alive and I'm out here on my own
    I'm alive and I'm comin' home

    Old buckskin jacket you always wore
    Hangs on the back of my bedroom door
    Boots and the spurs you used to ride
    Click down the hall but never arrive

    It's just your ghost moving through the night
    Your spirit filled with light
    I need, need you by my side
    Your love and I'm alive

    I can feel the blood shiver in my bones
    I'm alive and I'm out here on my own
    I'm alive and I'm comin' home

    Your old Fender Twin from Johnny's Music downtown
    Still set on ten to burn this house down
    Count the band in, then kick into overdrive
    By the end of the set we leave no one alive

    Ghosts runnin' through the night
    Our spirits filled with light
    I need, need you by my side
    Your love and I'm alive

    I shoulder your Les Paul and finger the fretboard
    I make my vows to those who've come before
    I turn up the volume, let the spirits be my guide
    Meet you, brother and sister, on the other side

    I'm alive, I can feel the blood shiver in my bones
    I'm alive and I'm out here on my own
    I'm alive and I'm comin' home
    Yeah, I'm comin' home

  • Paul Turner from LondonI was wondering who Mr Springsteen was refering too in the lyric to ghosts in particular the reference to buckskin coat and spurs. I just wondered who it was in particular. Thanks.
