"(Ghost) Riders In The Sky"

[Chorus]
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-o
Ghost riders in the sky

[Verse 1]
An old cowpoke went ridin' out
One dark and windy day (yippie-I-ay)
Upon a ridge he rested
As he went along his way
When all at once a mighty bunch
Of red eyed cows he saw
Plowin' through the ragged skies
And up a cloudy draw

[Chorus]
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-o
Ghost riders in the sky

[Verse 2]
Their brands were still on fire
And their hoofs were made of steel (yippie-I-ay)
Their horns were black and shiny
And the hot breath he could feel
A bolt of fear went through him
As they thundered through the sky
He saw the riders commin' hard
And he heard their mournful cry

[Chorus]
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-o
Ghost riders in the sky

[Verse 3]
Their faces gaunt
Their eyes were blurred
Their shirts all soaked with sweat (yippie-I-ay)
They're ridin' hard to catch that herd
But they ain't caught 'em yet'
'Cause you've gotta ride forever
On that range up in the sky
On horses snorting fire
As they ride on, hear their cry

[Chorus]
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-o
Ghost riders in the sky

[Verse 4]
As the riders went on by him
He heard one call his name (yippie-I-ay)
If you want to save your soul
From ever ridin' on our range
Then cowboy change your way today
Or with us you will ride
Tryin' to catch the devil's herd
Across the endless skies

[Chorus]
Yippie-I-ay, yippie-I-o
Ghost riders in the sky

[Outro]
Ghost riders in the sky
