Wonderful lyrics and story of the Sachs Bridge which is supposedly haunted. Built in 1854 and used in the battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil war.
I have to admit that I suddenly had doubts that I had pronounced "Sachs" correctly and had to look on Youtube to check!! I do hope it is correct. When I read the lyric I could hear a Joan Baez thing going on. I played the guitar on this (never really happy with just me on the guitar but there we are)...'
Thanks Cindy. Love this one.
The Ghosts on Sachs Bridge

(G) Not far from the battle of Gettysburg
Ghost (C) soldiers still reside
Sachs (G) bridge is still haunted
For the (D) soldier's lost their pride
(G) They abandoned the battle hung
thems(C)elves on that (G) bridge
You will (C) hear their murmurs
If you (D) visit that haunted ridge
Sachs (C) Bridge in Pennsylvania
Ac(G)ross the old Marsh Creek
They (C) say you can hear the ghosts
(D) Mumble, cry, and speak'
(C) Don't visit Sachs Bridge
Un(G)less you are very brave
(C) Soldiers still reside there On that
(D) covered....bridge (G) grave
(G) Some say the men were killed
For (C) leaving the bloody battle
