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

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

Chorus:

C chordC Am chordAm
Yippe-ai - oh, yippee-a i- ay, (Coyote Yip)
F chordF Am chordAm
Ghost riders in the sky,

Break: One verse Instrumental Guitar & Banjo

Am chordAm C chordC Am chordAm

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

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

Chorus:

C chordC Am chordAm
Yippe-ai - oh, yippee-ai - ay, (Coyote Yip)
F chordF Am chordAm
Ghost riders in the sky,
F chordF Am chordAm
Ghost riders in the sky,
F Am 11 bars
Ghost riders in the sky, then fade
