Em Em G G
An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day
Em Em
Upon a ridge he rested as he went upon his way
Em Em (C/E C/E) (A/E A/E) (C/E C/E)
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
C C (Am Am) Em Em
Coming through the ragged sky, and up a cloudy draw

Em Em G G
Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
Em Em
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
Em Em (C/E C/E) (A/E A/E) (C/E C/E)
A A bolt of fear went through him as they rumbled through the sky
C C (Am Am) Em Em
Then he saw the riders coming hard, and he heard their mournful cry

G G Em Em (D D)
Yippe-ai-ay, yippee-ai-oh
C C (Am Am) Em Em
Ghost riders in the sky

Em Em G G
As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
Em Em
If you want to save your soul from hell, a riding on this range
Em Em (C/E C/E) (A/E A/E) (C/E C/E)
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
C C (Am Am) Em Em
Trying to catch the devil's herd, across these endless skies
