LyriXML: Casper, The Friendly Ghost (Daniel Johnston )

He was smiling through his own personal hellC
dropped his last dime in a wishing wellF
But he was hoping too close and then he fellC
Now he's Casper the friendly ghostG

He was always polite to the people who'd tell himC
That he was nothing but a lazy bumF
But goodbye to them he had to goC
Now he's Casper the friendly ghostG

instrumentalC F C G

No one never treated him nice while he was aliveC
You can't buy no respect like the librarian saidF
But everybody respects the deadC
They love the friendly ghostG

instrumentalC F C G

And now they say
we'll never forget what he learned usC
We were mean to him but he never burnt usF
And love lives foreverC
thank you, Casper the friendly ghostG C
thank you, Casper the friendly ghostG
