Shakey Graves – Dearly Departed Lyrics

Oooooh [x4]

Well
You and I both know that the house is haunted1
And you and I both know that the ghost is me2
You used to catch me in your bed sheets just rattlin your chains3
Well back then baby, it didn’t seem so strange4

You used to bite, I used to moan5
But now I’m mumbling and you choke6
Well I ain’t so scary on my own7
Tell me honey, what’s a dagger without a cloak?8

I don’t know ’cause
You and I both know that the house is haunted
And you and I both know that the ghost is me
You used to catch me in your bed sheets just rattlin your chains
Well back then baby, it didn’t seem so strange

In the midnight hour you came alive9
I was lookin’ for my crystal ball10
I was busy tryin’ to charm that snake ssss
When the sun came up we had no place to hide11
And you had to tell your friends that my things were fake
I just had to12

You and I both know that the house is haunted
And you and I both know that the ghost is me
You used to catch me in your bed sheets just rattlin your chains
Well back then baby, it didn’t seem so strange

Even when one is dead and gone
It still takes two to make a house a home13
Well I’m as lonesome as the catacombs14
I hear you call my name but no one is there
Except a feeling in the air15

You and I both know that the house is haunted
Yeah you and I both know that the ghost is you
Used to walk around screaming, all slamming all ‘dem doors16
Well I’m all grown up now, I don’t scare easy no more17

Yeah, you and I both know
Oooohh
Yeah, you and I both know
Oooohh
Yeah, you and I both know
Oooohh
Oooohh18
