The Ghosts of St. Augustine

Ghosts of St. Augustine by Dave Schipper © 2006 Rose Riversongs

The ghosts of St. Augustine are an eerie sight
On rooftops, porches, and trees they come out at night
They walk this ancient ground, while their stories are told
By guides with lanterns, recounting tales of old.

The white gown of the bride
The candle in the night
The widow on the stairs
The renters Miss Faye scares

Ghosts of St. Augustine
Are the sights to be seen
Walk the cobblestone streets
And enjoy whom you meet

Pass the Bishop’s shrine and see the wayward bride
Who terrified those children tenting that night
Woke them with a cold hand brought screams and bone chills
Now she walks alone, mourning a love unfulfilled.

As guest G-Men talked, the innkeeper knew the plan
She gave the smuggler signal with lantern in hand.
Today her lost soul slips past the boarded entry
To the sea, Her hooded figure waves a sentry

My friends...

When you are a house concert host you can count some of the most talented and beautiful women or handsome men as friends. Tonight two past performers came to me with new videos:

Carry Out Cover by Natalie Lucie

I have no idea what this song is supposed to sound like because I avoid Justin Timberlake music with a passion. Hard to avoid Natalie though.. a fine new acoustic talent.

per her video notes: Hello folks! I had so much fun adding my little 'claps' on the Lily Allen song I covered last time, I thought I'd take it a step further so lots of harmonies on this one! Needless to say this took pretty much my whole weekend, but it was fun to make, so I hope you enjoy it.
