Ghost Riders In The Sky

by The Outlaws


An old cowpoke 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 steers he saw

Plowin 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 went through him

As they thundered through the sky

He saw the riders coming hard

Heard their mournful cry

Yippee-i-ay

Yippee-i-o

Ghost riders in...

Ghost riders in the sky

Yippee-i-ay

Yippee-i-o

Ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt

Their eyes were blurred

And shirts all soaked with sweat

They're ridin' hard to catch that heard

But they ain't caught it yet

For they've got to ride forever

On that range up in the sky

On horses snortin' fire

As they ride on hear their cry

Yippee-i-ay

Yippee-i-o

Ghost riders in...

Ghost riders in the sky

Ghost riders in the sky
