                Ghost Riders in the Sky     2/4     Johnny Cash

Standard Tuning / Capo 1 / Standard Boom Chuck     Reworked by Ken Lee

     / Am                    /                     / C                     / Am   / /

An / old cowboy went / riding out one / dark and windy / day, / /

       / Am               /                    / C                   / Am    / /

Up - / on a ridge he / rested as he / went along his / way,  / /

          / Am             /                       / F                        / Am  

When / all at once a / mighty herd of / red-eyed cows he / saw,

Am                       / F                 / /        / F               / Am     / / /

Plowin' through the / ragged sky, / / and  / up a cloudy / draw,  / / /

        / Am                        /                    / C                             / Am    / / 

Their / brands were still on / fire and their / hooves were made of / steel, / /

        / Am                           /                       / C                           / Am  / / 

Their / horns were black and / shiny and their / hot breath he could / feel, / /

   / Am                   /                               / F                              / Am 

A / bolt of fear went / through him as they / thundered through the / sky,

          / Am                 / F                  / /           /                               /  Am / / 

For he / saw the riders / coming hard, / / and he / heard their mournful / cry.  / /

Chorus:

               / C   / /                 / Am  / /

Yippe-ai - / oh, / / yippee-a i- / ay,  / / (Coyote Yip)

F        /          /     /      / Am  / / 

Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / /

Break:    One verse Instrumental Guitar & Banjo

        / Am                     /                                    / C                             / Am     / /

Their / faces gaunt, their / eyes were blurred, their / shirts all soaked with / sweat, / /

        / Am             /                             / C                            / Am  / / 

He's / ridin' hard to / catch that herd but / he ain't caught them / yet, / /

                     / Am                 /                   / F                    / Am

Cause they've / got to ride for - / ever on that / range up in the / sky,

     / Am                 / F    / /             / F                         / Am  / / / /     

All / horses snortin' / fire, / / as they / ride on, hear them / cry. / / / /

          / Am                  /                 / C                        / Am     / / / / 

As the / riders loped on / by him, he / heard one call his / name, / / / /

         / Am                     /                         / C               / Am

If you / want to save your / soul from hell, a / ridin' on our / range,

        / Am                          /                      / F                     /

Then / cowboy change your / ways today or / with us you will / ride,

Am                       / F                / /      / F                            / Am     / / 

Trying to catch the / devil's herd, / / a - / cross these endless / skies. / /

Chorus:

                / C   / /             / Am     / / / 

Yippe-ai -  / oh, / / yippee-ai - / ay,  / / / (Coyote Yip)

F        /          /     /      / Am  / / /

Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / / /

F        /          /    /       / Am   / / / 

Ghost / riders / in / the / sky,  / / /

F        /          /    /       / Am   / / / / / / / / / / / 11 bars
