Song of the Week: “Dearly Departed,” By Shakey Graves ft. Esmé Patterson

Lyrics

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

[Shakey:] You used to bite, I used to moan
[Esme:] But now I’m mumbling and you choke
[Shakey:] Well I ain’t so scary on my own
[Esme:] Tell me honey, what’s a dagger without a cloak?

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

[Shakey:] In the midnight hour you came alive
[Esme:] I was lookin’ for my crystal ball
[Shakey:] I was busy tryin’ to charm that snake ssss
When the sun came up we had no place to hide
[Shakey:] And you had to tell your friends that my things were fake
[Esme:] I just had to

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 home
Well I’m as lonesome as the catacombs
I hear you call my name but no one is there
Except a feeling in the air

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 doors
Well I’m all grown up now, I don’t scare easy no more

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