I told her to take it easy on the cigarettes and caffeine
I told her to take a break from the wine and Jim Beam
She didn't listen to me, just kept on
Nothin' good goin' on

She had a fine memorial, plenty of folks turned out
The preacher did a good job, told us all about
Her sunny disposition, her favorite song
All good, no wrong

I'm all alone and holdin', keepin' strong
Summer's ghost comes along

It was two or three months later, kinda like a dream
She walked in my bedroom wearing bright white jeans
She told me it was different being gone
Neither right nor wrong

I'm all alone and holdin' keepin' strong
Summer's ghost comes along

It got to be a habit, she'd come every night
It's not that I was scared, it just didn't seem right
Summer I am sorry that things went wrong
But your time is gone
I'm all alone and holdin,' something strong
Summer's ghost comes along.
