Ghost of the Empties

New years in the city, smacked up on self-pity

I took a walk amongst the ghosts and the empties

The ghosts of the empties

If you’d have opened up my skull that day you’d have found a
supermarket’s worth of useless junk

Among the ghosts and the empties

The ghosts and the empties

I was hemmed in by the sky it was all I could do to try to last til
morning

(Ghost and the empties, the ghosts of the empties)

Somebody over my shoulder said to open up your soul and let someone
in

(Ghost of the empties, the ghost of the empties)

Eagle and child, eagle and child, mother and baby doing fine
Eagle and child, eagle and child, mother and baby doing fine
(Ghost of the empties, the ghost of the empties)

Open up your soul you said and let someone in
Open up your soul you said and let someone in

Is it really a year?

Since I closed the door on the night before that beggars call when
you shivered at dawn

(Goodwin)

Thanks to Nick Yates for transcribing both the lyrics & guitar tab.

The tabs are designed so that you can strum along to the tracks. The tabs are designed so that you don’t have to play a right-handed guitar upside down to enjoy them!
