Brian Setzer Orchestra Ghost Radio Lyrics

sponsored links
As I came across the Pecos
And broke west of the line
This thunderstorm was running
And it ran me out of time

So I was racing through the rain
With this rig from Tennessee
When a voice cut through the static
Bringing comfort home to me
They were singing

I ain't sittin' in no shack
I got me a Ford right out the back
So come on and roll me over
If I ain't there in nothing flat

With a honky-tonk attitude
I'll be doing the straight line swing
C'mon and grab your horseshoe
And throw it in the ring

Now the levee wall was breaking
Rocks were rolling from the ridge
The announcer broke in saying
There was a bus trapped on the bridge

So I turned my rig around
I was axle-deep in mud
And I found those people stranded
The bridge was groaning in the flood
Still my radio was singing

I ain't sittin' in no shack
I got me a Ford right out the back
So come on and roll me over
If I ain't there in nothing flat

Honky-tonk attitude
I'll be doing the straight line swing
C'mon and grab your horseshoe
And throw it in the ring

With the grinding of my engine
I hauled those people free
With the raging river rising
The driver came thanking me

So I told him about the message
He said, "That can't be right
The storm knocked out the radio tower
Late last Saturday night"
But through the static we heard singing

I ain't sittin' in no shack
Got me a Ford right out the back
So come on and roll me over
If I ain't there in nothing flat

Honky-tonk attitude
I'll be doing the straight line swing
C'mon and grab your horseshoe
And throw it in the ring

Them old truckers gonna tell you
Down the lonely interstate
Out the dead air on the waveband
The Texas Playboys break

You'll hear a keening voice
Bob Wills is with you as you drive
And you'll know you got a broadcast
Straight from 1935
Can you hear him singing

I ain't sittin' in no shack
Got me a Ford right out the back
So come on and roll me over
If I ain't there in nothing flat

Honky-tonk attitude
Doing the straight line swing
C'mon and grab your horseshoe
And throw it in the ring

I ain't sittin' in no shack
Got me a Ford right out the back
Come on and roll me over
If I ain't there in nothing flat

Honky-tonk attitude
Doing the straight line swing
C'mon and grab your horseshoe
And throw it in the ring
