There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my own version of the chords which are played in a country & western style by
alternate picking of the bass strings. This makes the song sound like how Johnny Cash
might have done it. "Ghost Riders in the Sky" works well as a solo.

E                                  B7
The Wild Boys are calling on their way back from the fire

E                             B7
In August moon surrender to a dust cloud on the rise

C                A
Wild Boys fallen far from glory

E                             B7
Restless & so hungered on the razor's edge you trail

                E                           B7
Because there's murder by the roadside in a sore, afraid new world

C             D             C            A
They tried to tame us looks like they'll try again

E       D       B7
Wild Boys never loose it

E       D       B7
Wild Boys never chose this way

E       D       B7
Wild Boys never close your eyes

A              C D
Wild Boys always shine

           E                             B7
You've got sirens for a welcome. There's blood stains for your pain

         E                                    B7
And your telephones been ringing while you're dancing in the rain

C                A
Wild Boys wonder where is glory

E                               B7
Where is all you angels now the figure heads have fell

    E                           B7
And lovers war with arrows over secrets they could tell

C             D               C            A
They tried to break us, looks like they'll try again

Repeat Chorus

Could someone please tab this song as it is played by DD live? I believe they stepped it down a bit for their comeback concerts in 2004 so would that be simply a case of transposing the original tab down the way once it's posted on here? Btw, I'm a novice so go easy on me ;-)

dude, you SERIOUSLY butchered this thing when you did your "glam-western crossover". Some things just arent done. Also even with these chords, it is nowhere NEAR what the actual song is. And the song is obviously more than just 5 chords. The intermitten whole notes in the solo (which is the synthesizer and NOT the guitar by the way)use 7 chords. the guitar part solo uses about 9 chords strummed in 16th-note.

Also while Johnny Cash may tickle your fancy, why in the fuking hell would you ever butchedr Duran Duran like that? Putting Duran Duran as western is like putting metal or punk or whatever you kids listen to nowadays putting that to easy listening. I seriously doubt Senatra was a head-banger. Just as Duran Duran were obviously not cowboys.
