OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Allemande left your corner, turn partner right full turn
All four men star by the left, go one full turn and then
Turn thru at home, do an allemande left once more
Come back and swing your partner once around, promenade and sing
Yippee-yi-ya, ippie-yi-yo
Ghost riders in the sky


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) two couples touch 1/4, girls run to the right
Do a double pass thru, cloverleaf tonight
Center four turn thru, step to a wave and then
Ladies trade, swing thru, turn thru
Allemande left, promenade and sing
Yippee-yi-ya, ippie-yi-yo
Ghost riders in the sky

Riders In The Sky, (Ghost) Lyrics ID: 721

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.
