“I do like a good ghost story in a country song,” Rosanne Cash once remarked onstage in Gateshead.

The particular one she was referring to was ‘Long Black Veil’ - a hit for Lefty Frizzell in 1959 and famously recast by The Band on Music From Big Pink ten years later - but she’s got plenty to choose from!

And here are the spookiest of them all, apparitions from all over the spectrum - ghost horses, ghost dogs, ghost trains and ghost trucks. And a ghost boat.

The ghost of Elvis and the ghost of Hank Williams alongside the ghost of Porter Wagoner. Friendly phantoms and less friendly wraiths. Haunted houses and the thoughts of old lovers haunting your mind to insanity or something very like it.

Cartoon ghosts, literary ghosts, spoken word ghosts. Country ghosts, bluegrass ghosts, Americana ghosts and more. They’re all here in our Holler playlist of The Best Country Songs About Ghosts.
