{ghosts}

The ghosts I have seen have left me cold and defensive. Why do they appear? So many people have been terrified by other ghosts. Millions see no ghosts at all; disputing their very existance. -------------------------------------------------------------- I begin the show with GILES CONRAD WATSON and his stunning performance of his song "The Ghostly Witness". Check it out on youtube as he sings it in an old cemetary!
THE GHOSTLY WITNESS:

Annie Walker and her cousin
Shared the self-same bed,
She bore a child within her womb
But he would not be wed.
So William Walker took a pick
And cleaved her pretty head,
And in a mineshaft dank and cold
He let her grisly body mould
And swore that she was dead.

A Miller worked, a-grinding corn,
An honest man but poor,
When all at once dead Annie Walker
Stepped in through his door.
Her head was fairly cleaved in twain
And dripped with brains and gore.
Her hair was wet and hanging down
And blood-bespattered was her gown,
A-dripping on the floor.

Her blue lips parted and she spoke,
Her tongue was black with grime,
"Oh Walker did away with me,
Murdered in my prime!
His boots, besmeared with clotted blood
He left outside the mine.
He dragged me down into the hole,
My corpse decays amid the coal,
My bones leach into lime!"

The Miller quaked with mortal fear,
"Why hast thou come to me?"
His feet were frozen to the floor
Though he was wont to flee.
The corpse said, "Justice I require,
And leave it up to thee!
I'll haunt thee, Miller, taunt thee nightly
Until they bind up Walker tightly
And hang him from a tree!"

He knelt to wash away the clots
Congealing on the floor,
But as he scrubbed, the dead girl's blood
Returned in gouts of cruor,
And fast the Miller ran away
Across the misty moor.
She followed hard upon his trail
And clutched him with her fingers pale
And harrassed him the more.

He went unto the magistrate
And made the matter plain;
He told how Walker used his pick
And left poor Annie slain.
They found the body in the mine
The skull pierced to the brain,
Limbs akimbo, neck awry,
And Walker's boots were stashed nearby
Besmirched with bloody stains.

There is a gibbet on a tree,
And Walker's hanging there.
His eyes are fixed on Annie's grave
With dull and sightless stare;
The ravens watch his twitching corpse
And pluck his lanky hair.
In tufts they pull it from the roots,
And all because he left his boots
Beside his cousin fair.

Terrifying show Mr. Cain. Never know what to expect from you. Compliments for finding time to fit in Soviet France. They were one of my favourites in the 80's.
