Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around that corner girl, turn a left hand round your own
4 ladies chain 3/4 round you roam
Turn the girl and roll away, you circle to the left and then
Allemande left that corner girl and promenade again
Yipee-ki-oh, yippee-ki-ay
Ghost riders in the sky


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Head couples square thru get up go and then
Get to the corner, do a curlique and a walk & dodge my friend
Partner trade and pass the ocean, balance there and then
Girls trade and swing and promemade again
Yipee-ki-oh, yippee-ki-ay
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.
