Have You Seen the Ghost of John?

During the last week of October, I'll be interviewing Kristen Lawrence, creator of the Halloween Carols, over at Suburban Vampire.  One of the things I love about Kristen is that she revived the classic Halloween song "Ghost of John."  I have fond memories of sitting in my elementary school singing about that poor, eerie ghost with the "long, white bones and the rest all gone," which is probably one of the many explanations behind my ghost and Halloween obsession.  What's creepier than a classroom full of children singing, "Wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on"?

Here's Kristen Lawrence's customized rendition of the traditional American song. If you're looking for music other than "The Monster Mash" this Halloween, make sure you check out her website:

Wow! That takes me back!!! I don't think I've heard that song since first grade or something. Happy Halloween!

I'm glad it took you back! We sang it in the very early years of elementary school, too.
