Intro :
Am C Am C
Am C
An old cowboy went ridin' out one dark and windy day
Am C
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
Am
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
F Dm Am
Plowin' through the ragged skies, and up a cloudy draw
Am C Dm Am

Am C
Their brands were still on fire, and their hooves were made of steel

Am C
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
Am
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
F Dm Am
For he saw the riders comin' hard, and he heard their mournful cry

C Am F Dm Am
Yipie i-oh, yipie i-ay!
Dm Am
Ghost riders in the sky

Am C
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred their shirts all soaked with sweat
Am C
They're ridin' hard to catch that herd, but they ain't caught 'em yet'
Am
'Cause they've got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
F Dm Am
On horses snorting fire, as they ride on, hear their cry

C Am F Dm Am
Yipie i-oh, yipie i-ay!
Dm Am
Ghost riders in the sky

Am C
As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
Am C
"If you want to save your soul from hell a riding on our range
Am
Then cowboy change your ways today, or with us you will ride
F Dm Am
Tryin' to catch the devil's herd, across these endless skies"
C Am F Dm Am
Yipie i-oh, yipie i-ay!
