Song lyrics
Yes, my house is gettin' haunted, Blue Ghost is all around.
Yes, my house is gettin' haunted, Blue Ghost is all around.
I feel cold arms around me, my blues is easin' down.

I been in this haunted house, for six long months today.
I been in this haunted house, for six long months today.
The Blue Ghost is got my house surrounded, yes and I can't get away.

Black cat and a owl, comes to keep my company.
Black cat and a owl, comes to keep my company.
They understands my sorrows, and they sympathize with me.

Yeah! [spoken words – Lonnie Johnson]

I feel cold arms around me, and ice lips upon my cheeks.
I feel cold arms around me, and ice lips upon my cheeks.
And so many lonely nights and cold nights, I can here my dead lover plainly speak.

She says, "I'm dead and gone, but I'll always be by your side.
Yes, I'm dead and gone, but I'll always be by your side.
I will haunt the woman who dares, if she don't treat you right."

Lyrically, this is very much version 3 of the song, Blue Ghost Blues (1927); verse 2 is similar to verse 3 of version one, Blue Ghost Blues (1927), and verse 3 of version 2, Blue Ghost Blues (1938); verses 3 and 4 are similar to verses 2 and 4, respectively, of version 2, Blue Ghost Blues (1938). Each version has unique verses that deal with different aspects of haunting by the dead or the "afterlife."
