Ghost Riders In The Sky  Johnny Cash


















An / ol[Am]d cowboy went / riding out one / dark and wind[C]y / day, / /[Am]      
Up - / on[Am] a ridge he / rested as he / went along [C]his / way,  / /[Am]        
When / all a[Am]t once a / mighty herd of / red-eyed cows[F] he / saw,[Am]
[Am]Plowin' through the / ragge[F]d sky, / / and  / up a cloudy /[F] draw,  / / /[Am]          

Their / br[Am]ands were still on / fire and their / hooves were[C] made of / steel, / /[Am]        
Their / ho[Am]rns were black and / shiny and their / hot breath he co[C]uld / feel, / /   [Am]      
A / b[Am]olt of fear went / through him as they / thundered thro[F]ugh the / sky,[Am]
For he / saw[Am] the riders / coming [F]hard, / / and he / heard their mournful / cry.  / /[Am]    

Chorus:

Yippe-ai - / oh, [C]/ / yippee-a i- / ay,  / /[Am] (Coyote Yip)
[F]Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / [Am]/    

Break: One verse Instrumental Guitar & Banjo

Their / faces gaunt, their / eyes were blurred, their / shirts all soaked with / sweat, / /
He's / rid[Am]in' hard to / catch that herd but / he ain't ca[C]ught them / yet, / /[Am]      
Cause they've / got to [Am]ride for - / ever on that / range up in t[F]he / sky,[Am]
All / h[Am]orses snortin' / fire[F], / / as they / ride on[F], hear them / cry. / / / /[Am]          

As the / rid[Am]ers loped on / by him, he / heard one ca[C]ll his / name, / / / /     [Am]            
If you / wa[Am]nt to save your / soul from hell, a / ridin' on our[C] / range,[Am]
Then / cow[Am]boy change your / ways today or / with us you will / [F]ride,                
[Am]Trying to catch the / devil[F]'s herd, / / a - / cross the[F]se endless / skies. / /[Am]        

Chorus:

Yippe-ai -  / oh, [C]/ / yippee-ai - / ay, [Am] / / / (Coyote Yip)
[F]Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / [Am]/ /    
[F]Ghost / riders / in / the / sky,  /[Am] / /    
F / / / / Am / / / / / / / / / / / 11 bars
Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / / / / / / / / / / / then fade
