Intro: Am Am

Am Am
An old cowboy went ridin' out one
C C
dark and windy day
Am Am
Upon a ridge he rested as he
C C
went along his way

When
Am Am
all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
F F
Plowin' through the ragged skies,
Am Am
and up a cloudy draw
Am Am
Their brands were still on fire and
C C
their hooves were made of steel
Am Am
Their horns were black and shiny
C C
and their hot breaths he could feel

A A
Am Am
bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
F F
For he saw the riders coming hard,
Am Am
and he heard their mournful cry
Am Am C C
Yippie aye oh
Am Am F F
Yippie aye ay
Am Am
Ghost riders in the sky


Am Am
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred,
C C
their shirts all soaked with sweat,
Am Am
They're ridin' hard to catch that
C C
herd but they ain't caught 'em yet

'Cause
Am Am
they've got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
F F
On horses snorting fire, as
Am Am
they ride on hear them cry:
Am Am
As the riders loped on by him he
C C
heard one call his name:
Am Am
'If you want to save your soul from
C C
hell a-riding on our range,

Then,
Am Am
cowboy, change your ways today or with us you will ride
F F
Tryin' to catch the Devil's herd
Am Am
across these endless skies.'
Am Am C C
Yippie aye oh
Am Am F F
Yippie aye ay
Am Am F F
Ghost riders in the sky
Am Am F F
Ghost riders in the sky
Am Am F F
Ghost riders in the sky
