Yesterday upon the stair, I met a man who wasn’t there.
He wasn’t there again today. Oh, how I wish he’d stay away!

This is the first stanza of Antigonish, written in 1899 by Hughes Mearns. It was inspired by rumors of a ghost roaming the stairs of a haunted house in Antigonish, Novia Scotia. It inspired a popular Glenn Miller song in 1939, with vocals by Tex Beneke.
