Ghost on the Shore

Lord Huron

I'm just a man but I know that I'm damned
All the dead seem to know where I am
Till it began on the night of my birth
We'll be done in a turn of the earth

Lie where I land let my bones turn to sand
I was born on the lake and I don't want to leave
Every eye on the coast ever more
Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore

Under the waves and the earth of an age
Lie a thousand old northerners graves
Deep in the night when the moon's glowing bright
They come rising up into the night

Die if I must let my bones turn to dust
I'm the Lord of the lake and I don't want to leave
All who sail off the coast ever more
Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore

I'm goin' away for a long time
I'm goin' away for a long time

Lie where I land let my bones turn to sand
I was born on the lake and I don't want to leave
Every eye on the coast ever more
Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore

Die if I must let my bones turn to dust
I'm the lord of the lake and I don't want to leave
All who sail off the coast ever more
Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore

I'm goin' away for a long time
