about

Ghoultown Dallas, Texas

Since 1999, Ghoultown has delivered their unique brand of spaghetti-western infused rock across the musical badlands. Described as an “uncharted crossroads between Johnny Cash and Rob Zombie,” the Texas-based band defies conventional classification with a list of catchy, horror-influenced songs and a distinctive, dark western image to match. ... more

Track Name: Tekilla
Tekilla

when the sun goes down and darkness comes around
and we're ridin in from all points hellbound
there's only one thing that can keep the world in order
some of that honey of the earth
fruit of the agava

get set up
to knock down
cuz you know
that's how we stalk the night

chorus:
tekilla

in the morning you'll begin to feel it in every bone
like rigor mortis in a poor old zombie's soul
but right now we're comin onto high midnight
so come on killers let those fuckin shots fly

you feel it
in every bone
cuz you know
that's how we stalk the night

chorus

when the lights go out and all the bars close their doors
find your queen of the night and move it to the streets
drink the last drop, yeah baby swallow the worm
cuz life is short and by mornin we all burn

you take it
in every hole
cuz you know
that's how we stalk the night

chorus
Track Name: Blood On My Hands
Blood On My Hands

I got blood on my hands from all the years that come and go
cleanin up the messes that I've made
I just keep on washin but it never goes away
the more I scrub the more it stays

I got a pint from Carol Ann who left me for a friend
never saw it comin nor did she
the night I caught 'em in the sheets of that ol' feather bed
lord did that scene get out of hand

chorus:
so I took an eye for an eye
for what they did to me
don't pray for my soul
just give me soap
cuz you know it's a bitch comin clean

I got a quart from Laura Sue who went and took me for a fool
but I sent her down to chainsaw school
first you fill 'er up then you yank the cord
and look out when the chain it starts to roar

chorus

I got the most from Katy Jo who left me down and broke
after all the promises we pledged
but when it comes right down to it
love is just an axe
it cuts you through the heart and leaves you dead

chorus

they say I need one more verse
one verse for this song
but I can't think of a single thing I'd like to add
suffice to note that there ain't no hope
when you're always in the red
chances are that now I'll be condemned

chorus
Track Name: Mexican Moonshine
Mexican Moonshine

like a bullet shattered darkness
the southern witch appears
to fill my head with thirst
for the taste of just one tear
the heat of blazing eyes
burns my heart to coals
she’s got me where she wants me
one drink short of her soul

my eyes trace the contours
of the tattoos on her skin
that lead within the confines
of the glory born to men
night after night I follow
a slave to this thirst
I pray that she will heal me
as my face falls to the dirt

yo soy, yo soy
sangre de la luna
ella canta
she sings
listen to the song she sings

chorus:
Mexican moonshine

I’m servin out my sentence
in this god forsaken place
she circles my shadow
but I never touch her face
still she holds me
in the web she has spun
painting all her colors
in my world devoid of sun

yo soy, yo soy
sangre de la luna
lloró al Diablo
she sings
whoa she sings

chorus
Track Name: Bury Them Deep
Bury Them Deep

bury them deep that’s what I said
time to play your dead man’s hand
dealin bullets is like dealin cards
when it all comes down to a draw

wind in my face I feel the burn
dust drinks the blood of their tears
I say goodbye but it don’t mean much
when shots ring like hits of a drum

bury them deep that’s what I said
lay your body down on the sand
when it’s all said and done
it’s just a price I work to earn
it’s just a price I work to earn

hot sun glares down on the street
silence as deep as a Colorado gorge
don’t care where you been or where you come from
it’s just my job to be done

wind in my face I love the burn
dust drinks the blood of their tears
I say goodbye but it don’t mean much
when shots ring like hits of a drum

bury them deep
and they won’t back haunt your soul like they do mine

this town crawls with beggers and thieves
come to bite the hand that feeds
Track Name: Revolución
Revolución

I woke up this morning opened up my eyes
decided to take hold of my life
it’s been so long since I’ve seen an early dawn
the sun is at my back and I’m alive

here I come like an angry bull
alive or dead I’m runnin for the red

chorus:
viva (stand up)
revolución (ya)
I shake my fists
I shake my fists at the sun

I got to my feet and started the day
I’m moving on and I ain’t looking back
cursed be those who try to hold me down
tears of love won’t make me stay

gotta face this change with an open-minded heart
don’t let it take us all too far south
I’ve come to fight there’s a new door up ahead
if it ain’t open I’ll kick it down

chorus

when I play my song you hear the music from my soul
round and round this mad world I go
sometimes in this life there’s only one choice to make
so join me now or get out of my way

chorus
Track Name: Texas Bound
Texas Bound

I was born in a west texas gundown
when the sun was sinkin low
my mother she gave me her life there
and my father had already left home
nothing in life it come easy
when you ain’t really got no one
but there’s no place I rather be now
than under the texas sun

buried down among the worms of the grave
I’ve been away too fuckin long
hit the border come 1am
drinkin beer and singin songs

chorus:
whoa oh oh
I’m coming home
texas bound
put the pedal down
texas bound

it’s cold and lonely when you’re six feet down
it ain’t no way to spend the day
but now I’m back where I belong
back in the lone star state

chorus
Track Name: Walkin' Through the Desert (With a Crow)
Walkin’ Through the Desert (With a Crow)

it was sunday mornin and I found myself alone
walkin through the desert with a crow
I took me a shovel and I dug myself a hole
walkin through the desert with a crow

at times I thought that I would die
but I left those days somewhere behind
there’s only so much a man can take
before he knows
he knows he’s gonna break

cuz a man’s gotta take what he can take
when he’s got one foot down in the grave
you never know where the road is gonna end
sometimes I think this bird
this bird’s my only friend

chorus:
walkin through the desert with a crow

I murdered my past life and I covered up its bones
walkin through the desert with a crow
I gathered my possessions and I hit a lonely road
walkin through the desert with a crow

there’s been nights I drank myself to sleep
I lay my head on nails with bottles at my feet
when I awoke I thought I was free
but there he’d be
that bird that follows me

a man ain’t meant to be alone
with demons scratching at his soul
if I had wings I’d probably fly
if I had tears I know
I’d probably cry

chorus
Track Name: Boots of Hell
boots of hell

the snap of necks after nightfall
ropes are taut, the jury’s hung
‘forgotten’ is carved on their tombstones
there’s a new breed of outlaw in town

on four legs of fury we ride
our brand 666
in a flame of crimson glory
we have come

it’s a game of cancellation
gun down whatever’s in our way
our eyes are silver with bloodlust
our souls are dry like the dust

we are the nameless and thirsty
shameless, damned and corrupt
draw the blood from your daughters
drink til we are drunk

chorus:
fire (burnin)
blazin (hell yeah)
the eyes of evil are upon you
fire (burnin)
blazin (hell yeah)
it’s time to lick the boots of hell

darkness follows behind us
cold as ice to the bone
this cowboy dressed in black leather
is drillin for new texas gold

our blood is poison tequila
meet the worm from hell
come inside this wicked circus
one more notch on my belt

chorus:
fire (burnin)
blazin (hell yeah)
the eyes of evil are upon you

fire (blood red)
blazin (til the end)
the eyes of evil are upon you

fire (burnin)
faster (ya!)
the eyes of evil are upon you

fire (hellbent)
blazin (til the end)
it’s time to lick the boots of hell
Track Name: After 2
after 2

neon glow
the dive was alive
there were four on the floor by the time I arrived
she slithered up to me - up my spine
so I bought her a drink
and fed her a line

her hair was black as the night
she had long perfect legs and a gleam between her thighs
ten blood-red fingernails
so I followed the signs that said
‘straight to hell’

chorus:
I finally found my angel
yes I finally found the truth
that your soul is unforgiven
if you love what you do
so damned be salvation
when it looks as good as you
I’ll just have to pay the price
and dance with you
after 2

with dawn came the end of the night
and once more she came with a siren’s cry
then she was gone with her prize
too bad it seems my heart ain’t
as big as my eyes
Track Name: Killer in Texas
Killer in Texas

i’m a cold-blooded killer
my soul is ripped and torn
got the black heart of texas
i’ve got the devil’s horns

cuz i’ve spent my life to bring you harm
drank your blood to keep me warm
moon was full when i was born
i’m comin home, it won’t be long

chorus:
there’s a killer in texas
a killer in texas
there’s killer on the rails

i’m a hell raisin outlaw
out here stealin lives
killed a man for starin
i cut out his eyes

cuz i started life in evil’s hands
no way in hell i had a chance
you glorify the deeds i did
forgot about the soul i had to give

train keeps on rollin
my life is ever blowin
like dust across the lone star state
drink one more drink yeah
to wash down our sins
cuz nightfall has come and gone again

i’m a cold-blooded killer
i’m always on the run
just look at me mother
ain’t you proud of your son?

cuz i’ve spent my life to bring you harm
drank your blood to keep me warm
moon was full when i was born
i’m comin for you, it won’t be long
Track Name: Pale Skin Diva
pale skin diva

I slipped into my skin and met her after midnight
her cleopatra eyes were givin me the chills
the beating heart of darkness curled up inside her
I thought I saw some blood on her lips yeah

chorus:
pale skin diva
ya!

and like a raven spread her wings in crucifixion
opened her chamber door and slipped me inside
now we dig the sounds of groovy sex and leather
my hungry kitten, yeah, she likes to spill her milk, uh!

leather girl from hell
Track Name: Southern Witch
southern witch

it was nine o’clock and the pale eye of the moon was high
when I strapped on my gun and tried to forget the sun
I heard the daughter of darkness she called my name
let no man, good or evil, stand in my way

chorus:
southern witch
you got the evil spell
you took my heart away and locked it up down in hell
southern witch
never let me go
what is this burnin pain I feel in my soul?

I find her waitin for me beneath the hot spanish sky
unveiled and perfect her skin like aztec gold
from lips of fire I hear the endless song she sings
satan’s western star has a hold on me

I heard mother mary warn me to stay away
the touch of holy water burns like acid rain
but nothin can save me from this fate
now that she’s shown me her deep dark secret place

exsequor inritus irritus (fill this void)
cum mei carus dolor (with my beloved's misery)
Track Name: Stronger
Stronger

all my life i’ve been lookin for something better
but it don’t always work that way
the more you try the more they knock you on your ass
but hey this motherfucker’s here to stay

i’ll get even
you’re gonna see a dog turn mean
down here in texas
i think you know what i mean

took me a drive I had to get my head together
had to get myself the fuck away
more than once in my life i thought that everything was over
but i prove that wrong day by day

i ain’t goin down
as long as blood pumps in my veins
somewhere out there
there’s a marquee with my name

chorus:
so I (roll) i keep on rollin yes i do
(roll) get back up on my feet now
(roll) nothing gambled nothing won
(roll) knock me down but i just learn

that which does not kill me makes me stronger

play my songs they get me through the darkest hour
somehow we all learn to share the pain
and sometimes I wonder how I could have made it
without all my friends along the way

i ain’t goin down
as long as blood pumps in my veins
somewhere out there
there’s a marquee with my name
