C

He was smiling through his own personal hell

F

Dropped his last dime down a wishing well

C

But he was hoping too close and then he fell

G            C

Now he’s Casper the friendly ghost

 

He was always polite to the people who’d tell him

That he was nothing but a lazy bum

But goodbye to them he had to go

Now he’s Casper the friendly ghost

 

No one never treated him nice

While he was alive

You can’t buy no respect

Like the librarian said

But everybody respects the dead

They love the friendly ghost

 

And now they say we’ll never forget

What he learned us

We were mean to him

But he never burnt us

And love lives forever

thanks to you – the friendly ghost

 

**And so the legend grew

And all the people that he knew

Go and spread the news of

Casper the friendly ghost

 

 

* Titled "Casper" on the albums Continued Story and Live at SxSW

**The final verse only appears on the album Live at SxSW

 

This is a super simple song. the "hi how are
you" version is in g. this one (from "yip/jump") is in c.
