Haunted Cemetary

It happened in 1928 on old route 66
In Clinton Oklahoma my grandma
Told me it was her dad and her great uncle
They was in a wagon going to clinton
One late afternoon
They had to pass the clinton cemetary
As the wagon went under the old railroad bridge
Next to the cemetary they saw a women
Dressed in white with white hair walked out of the cemetary
And walked in the middle of the road
The horses slowed down and she grabbed the range
She petted the horses and walked along them up to the wagon
My grandpa and great uncle watched her all the way
Then she climbed up on the wagon where my great grandpa sat
And she sat on his lap
Then got up and walked back in front of the horses
Then walked back into the cemetary
The horses took off running out of control
My great uncle held the range tight in his hand's
Trying to keep the horses in control
When my grandpa and great uncle
Finally got into town my great grandpa
Turned to me great uncle and said she was
The lightest person that i have ever sat on my lap
My great uncle said to him she was a ghost
Beware of the ghost's that romes in clinton cemetary.
