Ghost rider in the sky

	  		Em                                 G  
An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day 
Upon a ridge he rested as he went upon his way 
     Em            (C/E)         (A/E)            (C/E) 
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw 
C                         (Am)     Em 
coming through the ragged sky, and up a cloudy draw 
      Em                                  G  
Their brands were still on fire and their hot breath he could feel 
Their horns were black and shiny and their hooves were made of steel 
  Em               (C/E)               (A/E)               (C/E)   
A bolt of fear went through him as they rumbled through the sky 
        C                          (Am)        Em 
Then he saw the riders coming hard,     and he heard their mournful cry 
         G             Em    (D) 
Yippe-ai-ay, yippee-ai-oh 
C           (Am)    Em 
Ghost riders in the sky 
       Em                         G  
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 this range 
     Em                (C/E)         (A/E)            (C/E)  
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride 
C                              (Am)    Em 
Trying to catch the devil's herd,    across these endless skies
