The Ghost On The Shore (Lord Huron)

I'm just a man, but I know that I'm damned All the dead seem to know where I am 'Til it began on the night of my birth Will be done in a turn of the earth Lie where I land let my bones turn to sand I was born on the lake and I don't want to leave it Every eye on the coast ever more Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore Under the waves and the earth of an age Lie a thousand old northerners' graves Deep in the night when the moon's glowing bright They come rising up into the night Die if I must, let my bones turn to dust I'm the lord of the lake and I don't want to leave it All who sail off the coast ever more Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore I'm goin' away for a long, long time I'm goin' away for a long, long time Lie where I land, let my bones turn to sand I was born on the lake and I don't want to leave it Every eye on the coast ever more Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore Die if I must, let my bones turn to dust I'm the lord of the lake and I don't want to leave it All who sail off the coast ever more Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore I'm goin' away for a long, long time
