Here is my cover of Justin Townes Earle’s song “Ghost of Viriginia” from the Yuma EP on acoustic guitar accompanied by my Dad. I’m playing a ’32 Martin OM18 and Dad’s guitar is a ’44 Gibson Southern Jumbo. Filmed at home in Boone, North Carolina in February 2013. We took a more bluegrass approach than JTE takes on the album complete with flatpicking breaks. Want to play this song on guitar? Go here for a tab The only difference in his version and mine as far as chords, is that I play this song with capo on the second fret out of C position and Earle uses G position on the 7th fret.

Well she comes out at night with the cold winds of December
And when it’s quiet you hear her engines cry
She blows smoke out her wheels and her gears pound the steel
As they carry her down the line

Now I’m sure you’ve heard stories as most of us have
In the lunch counter and barber shop kids
She’s the Ghost of Virginia and from here up to Richmond
She runs by the light of the Moon

Well a few years back on the old Suffick Road
Where it crosses the abandoned rail line
My Grandpa claimed that he’d seen a freight train
And it wasn’t no sleek stream line

She was cold black and steel and she screamed as she cut
Her way clear of the pines
But he swears to this day he can feel the earth shake
And smell her smoke when the wind’s just right

Yeah but back in her day she was a real working horse
Haulin’ coal out for old man Ward
She was tied up with ribbons and set out to Richmond
Haulin’ soldiers during the war

Ah but some say she wrecked and she rides these rails
Hopin’ one day that she’ll get it right
Others say she roams out picking up lost souls
Carryin ’em down to Carolina

So if you’re ever out on the old Suffick Road
And you see this strangest of sights
She’s the Ghost of Virginia bound from Raleigh up to Richmond
And you’d best stay out of her line

Yeah you’d best stay out of her line
