*An old cowpoke went ridin' out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way

Walk around the corner lady, see saw your own
Left allemande, weave the ring you roam
Yippy-aye-yay, yippy-aye-yo
Ghost riders in the sky


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands around the ring you're gonna roll
Dosado the corner lady once around you know
Star thru and then go right & left thru you turn like that
Roll a half sashay, box the gnat
Square thru go 3, swing and promenade

ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel


*As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul from hell a-ridin' on our range

Riders In The Sky, (Ghost)
 
 

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'plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
Ghost riders in the sky

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

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-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
They've got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
On horses snortin' fire, as they ride on, hear their cry

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-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' ridin' on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
A-tryin' to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies."

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
Ghost riders in the sky
Ghost riders in the sky

Lyrics by Stan Jones.
Recorded by Vaughn Monroe.
