An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw

Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry
Yippie yi ooh
Ghost Riders in the sky
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
'Cause they've got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
As they ride on hear their cry
As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride

Yippie yi yay
Ghost Riders in the sky
Ghost Riders in the sky
