Ghost Riders in the Sky
Written by Stan Jones, c. 1949, and recorded originally by Vaughan Monroe (later by Johnny Cash)

An old cowboy went ridin' out one dark and windy
at bolder ridge he rested as he went along his way
when all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
driving through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

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

Yipie i oh,  Yipie i ay
Ghost riders in the sky

As the riders loaped on by him he heard one call his name
if you want to save your soul from hell a riding on our range
cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
driving with the devils herd a-cross this moonlit sky

Their face was drawn there eyes were blurred their shirts all soaked with sweat
He's ridin' hard to catch that herd but he 'aint caught 'em yet
'cause they've all to ride forever on that range up in the sky
oh the horses start to shire as they ride on through they cry

Yipie i oh,  Yipie i ay
Ghost riders in the sky

Ghost riders in the sky
