A Ghost To Most

This song is by Drive-By Truckers and appears on the album Brighter Than Creation's Dark (2008).

I guess I'll never grow a sideburn, it's a shame with all I got to go between
I hope somebody's cause takes soon, it's getting hard to find a place a root can sink
Mama said a lot of things and "be thankful" was the one she never minded saying twice
Thanks to her I can think clear enough to be thankful she died before tonight

Baby, every bone in my body's gone to jumping like they're gonna come through my skin
If they could get along without the rest of me, it wouldn't matter if they did
But skeletons ain't got nowhere to stick their money, nobody makes britches that size
And besides you're a ghost to most before they notice that you ever had a hair or a hide

Saving everybody takes a man on a mission with a swagger that can set the world at ease
Some believe it's God's own hand on the trigger and the other dumping water in the streets
Talking tough's easy when it's other people's evil and you're judging what they do and don't believe
It seems to me you would have to have a hole your own to point a finger at somebody else's sheet

Baby, every bone in my body's gone to jumping like they're gonna come through my skin
If they could get along without the rest of me, it wouldn't matter if they did
But skeletons ain't got nowhere to stick their money, nobody makes britches that size
And besides you're a ghost to most before they notice that you ever had a hair or a hide

I don't know how much good it does a man to keep on telling him how good it is he's free
Free to wash his ghost down the drain and free for them to tell him there's no such a thing

Baby, every bone in my body's gone to jumping like they're gonna come through my skin
If they could get along without the rest of me, it wouldn't matter if they did
But skeletons ain't got nowhere to stick their money, nobody makes britches that size
And besides you're a ghost to most before they notice that you ever had a hair or a hide
