Pack up all those phantoms
Shoulder that invisible load
Keep on riding North and West
Haunting that wilderness road
Like a ghost rider

Carry all those phantoms
Through bitter wind and stormy skies
From the desert to the mountain
From the lowest low to the highest high
Like a ghost rider

Keep on riding North and West
Then circle South and East
Show me beauty but there is no peace
For the ghost rider
For the ghost rider

Shadows on the road behind
Shadows on the road ahead
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now

There's a shadow on the road behind
There's a shadow on the road ahead
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now

Sunrise in the mirror
Lightens that invisible load
Riding on a nameless quest
Haunting that wilderness road
Like a ghost rider

Just an escape artist
Racing against the night
A wandering hermit
Racing toward the light

From the white sands
To the canyon lands
To the redwood stands
To the barren lands
To the barren lands

Sunrise on the road behind
Sunset on the road ahead
There's nothing to stop you now
Nothing can stop you now

There's a shadow on the road behind
There's a shadow on the road ahead
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now

Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now
Nothing can stop you now

    Lyricist and drummer, neil peart, tragically lost his daughter and wife in short succession. He left the band and got on his bmw motorcycle and began to ride. In essence, the first verse speaks to that. When he returned, he wrote a book about his experience and gave it the title, "ghost rider. " this song is the lyric version of his experience.
