Capo #1 


Intro: [Am Am] x5    

1st verse:
   Am Am                            C C                  C C
An old cowboy went ridin' in one dark and windy day
 Am Am                          Am Am                 Am Am
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
     Am Am                           Am Am
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
F F                               F F    Dm Dm  -       Am Am     Am Am 
Plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw


2nd verse:
      Am Am                                  C C                         C C
Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
      Am Am                                   Am Am                        Am Am
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
  Am Am                                    Am Am
A A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
       F F                          F F       Dm Dm  -                Am Am     Am Am 
For he saw the riders comin' hard, and he heard their mournful cry


Chorus:
          C C    C C          Am Am   Am Am
Yippie-yi Ohhh, yippie-yi Yaay
F F            F F       Am Am    Am Am
Ghost riders in the sky


Solo:
[Am Am][C C][C C][Am Am]
[Am Am][Am Am][Am Am][Am Am]
[F F][F F][Dm Dm-Am Am][Am Am]


3rd verse:
      Am Am                                          C C                            C C
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
     Am Am                                  Am Am                      Am Am
He's ridin' hard to catch that heard but he ain't caught 'em yet
               Am Am                          Am Am
'Cause they've got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
   F F                    F F        Dm Dm  -              Am Am  -   Am Am   Am Am
On horses snortin' fire, as they ride on hear their cry


4th verse:
       Am Am                         C C                       C C    C C
As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
        Am Am                                Am Am
"If you wanna save your soul from hell, a ridin' on our range
     Am Am                               Am Am
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
F F                               F F  Dm Dm  -               Am Am       Am Am
Tryin' to catch the devil's herd a-cross these endless skies"


Chorus:
          C C    C C          Am Am   Am Am
Yippie-yi Ohhh, yippie-yi Yaay
F F            F F       Am Am    Am Am
Ghost riders in the sky
F F            F F       Am Am    Am Am
Ghost riders in the sky
F F            F F       Am Am    Am Am
Ghost riders in the sky
