Searching for folk songs and ballads with a spooky theme. I am searching for songs for myself and others to use for a Zoom Samhain/All Souls/Halloween theme singing session. We want to stick to traditional songs. Lessor know songs would be fun to find. But I am open to suggestions and leads. Much thanks. I look forward to getting some ideas.

See previous threads such as this one. The Suffolk Miracle / Holland Handerchief is a good one. Also some of the night-visiting songs where the visiting lover turns out to be dead, and the ballad Sweet William's Ghost

I suppose the Highwayman doesn't qualify as "traditional", and what about Robbie Burns?
