Ghost Riders In The Sky  Stan Jones

[Am]An old cowpoke went ridin' out one [G]dark and lonely day,
U[Am]pon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
[Am]When all at once a mighty herd of r[G]ed eyed cows he saw
[F]a plowin' through the ragged skies and[Dm] up a[Am] cloudy draw
          [G]                                  [Am]           [F]                            
[Am]Their brands were still on fire and [G]their hooves were made of steel
[Am]Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
[Am]A bolt of fear went through him as [G]they thundered through the sky
[F]He saw the riders coming hard... and he heard t[Dm]heir mournful [Am]cry

   Yippie I [G]ayy   Yippie I [Am]Oooh     [F]Ghost Riders in the [Am]sky
Verse 3------------------------------------------------------------------

As the [Am]riders loped on by him, he h[G]eard one call his name
If you [Am]want to save your soul from hell, a riding on our range
Then [Am]cowboy change your ways today or w[G]ith us you will ride
[F]Trying to catch the devil's herd, a[Dm]cross these endless s[Am]kies

   Yippie I [G]ayy   Yippie I [Am]Oooh     [F]Ghost Riders in the [Am]sky
Verse 4------------------------------------------------------------------

[Am]The faces gaunt their eyes were blurred [G]their shirts all soaked with sweat
They're ridin' hard to catch that herd but they 'aint caught 'em yet
[Am]'cause they've got to ride forever on th[G]at range up in the sky
[F]On horses snorting fire as they r[Dm]ide on hear them [Am]cry.
