Ghost Riders In The Sky

Johnny Cash

 AmCAm
An / old cowboy went / riding out one / dark and windy / day, / /       
 AmCAm
Up - / on a ridge he / rested as he / went along his / way,  / /        
 AmFAm
When / all at once a / mighty herd of / red-eyed cows he / saw,
 AmFFAm
 Plowin' through the / ragged sky, / / and  / up a cloudy / draw,  / / /          

 AmCAm
Their / brands were still on / fire and their / hooves were made of / steel, / /        
 AmCAm
Their / horns were black and / shiny and their / hot breath he could / feel, / /         
 AmFAm
A / bolt of fear went / through him as they / thundered through the / sky,
 AmFAm
For he / saw the riders / coming hard, / / and he / heard their mournful / cry.  / /    

Chorus:

 CAm
Yippe-ai - / oh, / / yippee-a i- / ay,  / / (Coyote Yip)
 FAm
 Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / /    

Break: One verse Instrumental Guitar & Banjo

Their / faces gaunt, their / eyes were blurred, their / shirts all soaked with / sweat, / /
 AmCAm
He's / ridin' hard to / catch that herd but / he ain't caught them / yet, / /      
 AmFAm
Cause they've / got to ride for - / ever on that / range up in the / sky,
 AmFFAm
All / horses snortin' / fire, / / as they / ride on, hear them / cry. / / / /          

 AmCAm
As the / riders loped on / by him, he / heard one call his / name, / / / /                 
 AmCAm
If you / want to save your / soul from hell, a / ridin' on our / range,
 AmF
Then / cowboy change your / ways today or / with us you will / ride,                
 AmFFAm
 Trying to catch the / devil's herd, / / a - / cross these endless / skies. / /        

Chorus:

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