Megan Moroney Shares Awesome Acoustic Cover Of Miranda Lambert’s Underrated Deep Cut Gem, “Ghost”

“Ghost” is easily one of the most underrated songs on The Marfa Tapes.

A co-write by Jack Ingram, Jon Randall and Miranda Lambert, the song was included on their aforementioned 2021 collaborative album and is pure country gold.

It’s an absolutely scathing song about how her ex is nothing more than a ghost to her now, and she buried his memory six-feet deep in her mind, to never be seen or heard from again:

“I burned your Levi’s and your pearl snap shirts
Ashes to ashes and dirt to dirt
Buried our love in a deep dark hole
Now you’re just a ghost

If you’re such a poet, write an epitaph
You and I both know you ain’t comin’ back
I sure loved you but I let you go
Now you’re just a ghost
Honey, now you’re just a ghost”

Those lines coupled with Miranda’s sassy twang?

It doesn’t get much better than that…

And yesterday, up and comer Megan Moroney shared a great acoustic cover of it on TikTok, and I love seeing her shine a light on this gem of a deep cut, and the whole album as a whole.

Her caption sums it up perfectly:

“marfa tapes awareness post! @mirandalambert is queen forever.”

She has some grit and rasp to her vocals that just deliver the song exactly the way I feel like it was meant to be sang:

If you’re going through a bad breakup, or even if you’re not, definitely add this one to your playlist. Screaming it at the top of your lungs is basically therapy, in my very humble opinion…
