Lion Reviews Patty Griffin (1202 words)
Patty does not share with us what the ghosts really are, but they were kept from her partner and shielded him from ever getting within "a hundred million miles" of her soul.
Patty regrets that she never really got to know this outcast in school, even though she sat behind him, staring over his shoulder "at a map of the world".
The song itself is about Patty wearing out the soles of her red shoes, walking and remembering a dressed up woman in red pumps who was murdered because of the way she looked on the outside.
