Ghost Song was also from An American Prayer. The Shaman gathered all of his inner most thoughts, put pen to paper and went to work. I would like to think it was his final FU to the media machine that made him a star. They inevitably turned against him as they always do. Jim had his freak outs and he did his time in jail, but no matter what, he will still remain a poet in my eyes, despite what Gregory Corso says in his What Happened to Kerouac rant. "Kings don't like repetition." Well I'm no king, but when I put my boots on and dance it out to this song, I sure in the hell feel like one.
