However, he was between record deals and not in a position to record “Ghost In This House.” Producer Rick Hall in Muscle Shoals, Alabama acquired the tune. Although pleased with Shenandoah’s cut of “Ghost In This House,” Prestwood actually had envisioned a version that was somewhat darker than the way they did it – much slower and heavier.

I'm just a ghost in this house, I don't care if it rains, There’s a scene where a character named Muley has just lost everything he owned. It was with this great sense of emptiness and quiet. Then when he had them, more often than not he would go back and re-write certain lines.
