Ghost From Jost

I have been meaning to write a post about Ghost. We met up with Ghost at one of the bars on St John a few months ago and actually got to spend some time with him.




Of course if you buy him a ginger root beer, he will recite some of his poetry too or even write a poem for you! He wrote a poem for me a while back too!



Ghost is a mainstay in Cruz Bay in St John and he is not to be confused with Lindy, whom Kenny Chesney wrote a song about. But Kenny Chesney did write a poem for Ghost!



Seems like this was written back in 2011, so I guess Kenny already had the song Life on a Rock written in his mind, a poem for Ghost?


Well you don't lose your lover, you just lose your turn.
Drivin' on the left side gotta be learned.
Happy hours from 3 to 6 but it never really stops.

That's just livin', that's just livin'
That's just livin' life on a rock, yea.

We got Rasta religions, and parrots and pigeons,
Mango and salt on a stick.
Life is a lime and from time to time,
I gotta go get my fix, yea

We roll with the flow, friends come and go
Usually by the edge of the dock.

That's just livin', that's just livin'
That's just livin' life on a rock, yea.
Oh, I love livin', I love livin'
I love livin' life on a rock, yea.


Here are a couple of videos I took as he recited some of his poetry!




If you are ever in Cruz Bay on St John and Ghost, don't be shy, say hello!
