Virginia City Nevada

You can feel the breath of ghosts on your neck

As your boots thunk over ancient wooden planks of the boardwalk

Smells of pizza and chocolate mix in the crisp air

That blows over the mountains.

Wild horses roam the streets when the mood overtakes them

Saloons with names like Bucket of Blood and the Red Dog

Serve great drinks to take the chill from the bones

And live music rocks the soul.
