Ghost riders in the sky


An old cowboy went riding out
One dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested
As he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd
Of red eyed cows he saw
A-plowing through the ragged sky
And up the 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 went through him
As they thundered through the skies
For he saw the riders coming hard
And he heard their mournful cry
.
Yippie aye yaaaaay
Yippie aye ohhhhh
Ghost Riders in the skies
.
As the riders loped on by him
He heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul
From hell a-riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today
Or with us you will ride
Trying to catch the devil’s herd,
Across these endless skies
.
Yippie aye yaaaaay
Yippie aye ohhhhh
Ghost Riders in the skies
.
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred,
Their shirts all soaked with sweat
He’s riding hard to catch that herd,
But he ain’t caught ’em yet
‘Cause they’ve got to ride forever
On that range up in the sky
On horses snorting fire
As they ride on hear their cry
.
Yippie aye yaaaaay
Yippie aye ohhhhh
Ghost Riders in the sky
Ghost Riders in the sky
Ghost Riders in the sky
