    Lyrics

    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 cows he saw,
    A ploughin' through the ragged skies
    And up a cloudy draw.
    Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
    The ghost herd in the sky.

    Their brands were still on fire and their hooves was made of steel,
    Their horns wuz black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel,
    A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky,
    For he saw the riders comin' hard
    And he heard their mournful cry.
    Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-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 herd but they ain't caught them yet
    'Cause 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-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
    Ghost riders in the sky.

    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 our range,
    Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
    A-try'ng to catch the devil's herd
    Across these endless skies."
    Yippee-yi-ay, yippee-yi-o,
    The ghost herd in the sky.

    Ghost riders in the sky.
