C
I've been ghosting
C.                 -Eb- -E-
I've been ghosting  a  long
Am      C
Ghost in your house
F
ghost in your arms
C                    C                -Eb-  -E-
When you're tossing, when you turn in your sleep
Am     C        F
it's because I'm ghosting your dreams

Pre-Chorus:
F             G
And this is why I have decided
C              F
to pull these old white sheets from my head
F                G
I'll leave them folded neat and tidy
C               F                           F  C7
so that you'll know I'm out of hiding

Verse:
C
I've been ghosting
C                  -Eb- -E-
I've been ghosting  a  long
Am       C          F
Ghost in the world, ghost with no home
C           C          -Eb- -E-
I remember, I remember the days
Am        C      F
when I'd make you oh so afraid

Pre-Chorus:
F           G
And this is why I have decided
C               F
to leave your house and home unhaunted
F                G

Hey
                           A7
Would it be so bad if I stayed?
                              Ab
I'm just a ghost out of his grave
                           G
and I can make love in my grave
                             Bbm
I won't put white into your hair
                             Ab
I won't make noises in your stairs
                            G
I will be kind and I'll be sweet
                                     Gb
if you stop staring straight through me

Pre-Chorus:
F             G
And this is why I have decided
C              F
to pull these old white sheets from my head
F                G
I'll leave them folded neat and tidy
C               F
so that you'll know I'm out of hiding
F           G Ab
And this is why I have decided
C               F
to leave your house and home unhaunted

You don't need no halloween
                F

    if E is too hard try Em7 or E7…. is much easier and sounds the same.
