lyrics

Rode into town late one night.
The only shine was from the moon.
Our eyes cut sharp for any old fight
As we strolled on towards the saloon.
We got down off our steeds, ready to bleed,
As we kicked thru the bat wing doors.
Shooters ready and cocked for we knew theirs would not
Guns blazing on thieves and whores.
But we spared the musician, one of our traditions.
With them we all split our keep.
The piano man gave us grace as a tear streamed his face.
He said "You must be Ghost Peeps!"

(Chorus)
'Cus we're a rootin' tootin' twosome who used to be three.
Used to have a drummer but he disagreed.
Caught one between the eyes cus he decided to speak his mind.
Hooh-Ha!
Ghost Peeps is who we be!

From a handle of bourbon from behind the bar
For the 'tender caught one in the heart.
Poured the remains in an old dirty jar
As "V" played his guitar like a harp.
The piano man hit the keys as there blew a dry breeze.
The only sound in town this song.
Never expected an applause, we were for another cause
As the dead night continued on.
Must of looked very strange to anyone on the range.
One lone saloon light in the dark.
But as the desert stayed cold, inside we were bold
As played to our victims like sharks.

(Chorus)

And as the sun rose, we mounted and rode.
The town fading away in the past.
Again we readied our eyes for another town to demise.
And I guarantee it won't be our last.

about

Ghost Peeps San Francisco, California

Some say that it was the work of the devil. A duo that should never have seen the light of day. Some even deny the very existence of this band, or having ever seen them live. But, alas, it once was. They did exist and it was something.
