Dear New Zealanders (possibly Brits, Aussies or Afrikaners), I found a song that I think would be great on banjo, but can't find it online. I heard it at the opening of Brokenwood Mysteries Season 5 Episode 1. It's a rock-a-billy song with a nice melody and great chord changes, and it goes:

I'm the ghost of this town, i'm the ghost of this town,
I say things I don't mean, to people I don't know,
I'm the ghost of this town.

Thanks

That's it. Thanks so much. I did lots of google searches and it didn't come up. I really appreciate your help.

Just watched the video. Its definitely done in Kiwi land. It is probably an original.

banjonz, I thought it was an original as well. There must be an album because the version on the TV was definitely a studio recording, but I was just hoping for the studio version online, but it really doesn't matter...I can pick up the chord changes and lyrics, there is no banjo to speak of, so I can make up my own.

I think banjo would fit well in it.
