Phantom Of The Opry
( Written by Billy Lawson / John Schweers / Roger Murrah )

Around midnight
A shadow appears on center stage
And sings a haunting melody
While a distant fiddle plays
Look closer
You can almost see a rhinestone shining in the dark
He's still a living legend
Living right here in my heart

Chorus:
He's the phantom of the Opry
A grand ole spirit from the Ryman days
He just feels at home here
He don't really mean to haunt this place
Every time it rains in Nashville
They say the angels cry
'Cause the phantom of the Opry
Never got to say goodbye

Some say it's Hank or Lefty
Or that Kentucky Bluebird flying back again
No one knows for certain
But we all know it's more than just the wind
There's a ghostly sound of steel guitar
Crying in the night
Does it come from center stage
Or from somewhere on the other side

Chorus:
He's the phantom of the Opry
A grand ole spirit from the Ryman days
He just feels at home here
He don't really mean to haunt this place
Every time it rains in Nashville
They say the angels cry
'Cause the phantom of the Opry
Never got to say goodbye

Around midnight
A shadow appears on center stage
And sings a haunting melody
While a distant fiddle plays
