Ghost Riders In The Sky
Ghost Riders In The Sky is one of them songs that has been covered by many artists, including Bing Crosby, Peggy Lee, Spike Jonze, Johnny Cash and of course the Blues Brothers for the soundtrack to their film, Blues Brothers 2000. It is believed to have inspired The Door's Riders Of The Storm. The key I believe the song is played in is E minor. Here's the song; Em D An old cowpoke went ridin' out one dark and windy day Em Bm Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way Em G When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw Bm Em A-plowing through the ragged sky and up a cloudy draw Em D Their hooves was made of iron and their horns was made of steel Em Bm Their brands was still on fire and their hot breath he could feel Em G A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky Bm Em For he saw the Riders comin' hard and heard their mournful cry Am Yippie yi aaaay Em Yippie yi ohhhh, Bm Em The Ghost Herd in the sky Their faces gaunt, their eyes was blurred, their shirts was soaked with sweat They're ridin' hard to catch that herd, but they ain't caught 'em yet 'Cause they've got to ride forever on that range up in the sky On horses snorting fire As they ride on hear their cry As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name If you want to save your soul from Hell a-riding on our range Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride Tryin' to catch that Devil's herd, across these endless skies Yippie yi aaaay Yippie yi ohhhh, The Ghost Riders in the sky The Ghost Riders in the skyyyy!
