The Ghost of Tears ©2018 Robert George BMI

There’s a lighthouse on the coast of Maine
High above a foggy pier
Some say fog is like the ghost of rain
But it’s like the ghost of tears

Well, she watched him climb aboard his rusty trawler
And she said she didn’t care about their debts
But a late September catch would fetch top dollar
So he sailed into the sea’s eternal net

There’s a lighthouse on the coast of Maine
High above a foggy pier
Some say fog is like the ghost of rain
But it’s like the ghost of tears

Waves were salty mountains and the wind was gale force
Then his fishing vessel foundered in the squall
Now the midnight moon above her is a pale horse
And his death feels like the deepest debt of all

There’s a lighthouse on the coast of Maine
High above a foggy pier
Some say fog is like the ghost of rain
But it’s like the ghost of tears

Yes, there’s a lighthouse on the coast of Maine
High above a foggy pier
Some say fog is like the ghost of rain
But it’s like the ghost of tears

The ghost of tears
The ghost of tears…
