(verse1)
Bm Bm D D
An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day;
Bm Bm D D
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way,
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,
G G Bm Bm
Plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw.


(verse2)
Bm Bm D D
Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel,
Bm Bm D D
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel;
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
A A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky,
G G Bm Bm
He saw the riders comin' hard and heard their mournful cry.


(chorus, repeat twice)
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o,
G G Bm Bm
ghost riders in the sky.

(guitar solo 1 in B B 4th fret)


(verse3)
Bm Bm D D
As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name;
Bm Bm D D
"If you want to save your soul from hell a' ridin' on our range,
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride,
G G Bm Bm
Tryin' to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies."


(chorus, repeat twice)
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o,
G G Bm Bm
ghost riders in the sky.

(guitar solo2)


(verse4)
Bm Bm
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred,
D D
Their shirts all soaked with sweat;
Bm Bm D D
He's ridin' hard to catch that herd, but he ain't caught 'em yet;
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
They've got to ride forever in that range up in the sky,
G G Bm Bm
On horses snortin' fire, as they ride on, hear their cry.


(chorus, repeat twice)
Bm Bm D D Bm Bm
Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o,
G G Bm Bm
ghost riders in the sky.
