(D major scale 6th degree Aeolian mode (B minor))

[Verse 1]
 Bm                                 D
An old cowpoke went riding out one dark and windy day;
 Bm                                 D
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way,
    Bm                                D            Bm
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,
   G                                  Bm
Plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw.

[Verse 2]
      Bm                                   D
Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel,
Bm                                          D
Their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel;
   Bm                                       D            Bm
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky,
    G                                          Bm
He saw the riders comin' hard and heard their mournful cry.

[Chorus] x2
Bm           D            Bm
Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o,
G                    Bm
ghost riders in the sky.

(guitar solo 1 in B 4th fret)

[Verse 3]
       Bm                            D
As the riders loped on by him, he heard one call his name;
    Bm                                          D
"If you want to save your soul from hell a' ridin' on our range,
      Bm                                 D             Bm
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride,
  G                                          Bm
Tryin' to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies."

[Chorus] x2
Bm           D            Bm
Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o,
G                    Bm
ghost riders in the sky.

(guitar solo 2)

[Verse 4]
Bm
Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred,
       D
Their shirts all soaked with sweat;
Bm                                        D
He’s ridin' hard to catch that herd, but he ain't caught 'em yet;
      Bm                              D                 Bm
They've got to ride forever in that range up in the sky,
    G                                              Bm
On horses snortin' fire, as they ride on, hear their cry.

[Chorus] x2
Bm           D            Bm
Yip-pie-ya-aye, yip-pie-yi-o,
G                    Bm
ghost riders in the sky.
