	        A G#     F#m                    E 
I had my hopes of how I would be 
                 Dmaj7  
After living in exile, 
                      E                 D 
After closing your eyes to me. 

A G#          F#m                           E 
I even wrote scenes where I re emerged boldly, 
                                Dmaj7 
Bearded, alive and Eskimo eyed, 
                     E            D 
New baby on my back. 

A             G#       F#m                             E 
But I didn't count the fact that I have ghosts in my mind, 
E 
Stowaways, 
                      Dmaj7                     E  
Great ghosts of my life, great ghosts of old wives. 
              D 
And they're howling! 

A      G#       F#m                     E 
So I spent my wilderness time rolling on the ground 
                                    Dmaj7 
Pulling my hair and wrestling them off, 
            E 
Yelling at no one, 
               D 
Punching snow. 

A   G#     F#m                     E 
I gathered ghosts and gave them a lecture, 
E 
I bid them away,  
                 Dmaj7  
I pleaded and cried: 
             E                                              D 
'There's no room in my life for you, or you or your howling! 

A          G#        F#m                             E 
Let me undo these ropes and go on living without you, 
                         Dmaj7 
not just change where I live. 
              E 
Oh go on, get!' I said. 

A   G#     F#m                    E 
I had my hopes, of how I would be after sending them off, 
                   Dmaj7  
After getting set free. 
                       E                              D 
But there's no such thing as living without their prowling. 

A  G#       F#m                         E 
As you can see, having descended the hill, 
E 
I still look like me,  
               Dmaj7  
I still wallow like Phil, 
              E           D  
And forever will. 

A  G#             F#m                               E 
I'm teaming with ghosts and I'm still whining for wives, 
                                      Dmaj7 
Bidding my brow, but now I've surrendered. 
                     E  
In fact I've joined in. 
E  
Listen close... 
                   D  
You can hear us howling!
