Ghost Riders in the Sky     20/9     Blues Brothers
Standard Tuning / Standard Boom Chuck     Reworked by OGAN Lidgren
                                                        
/ Am                  /                / C                     
An / old cowboy went / riding out one / dark and windy / day, 
/ Am                                 / C                   
Up - / on a ridge he / rested as he / went along his / way,  
/ Am
When / all at once a / mighty herd of / red-eyed cows he / saw,                       
/ F                                        / Am          
Plowin' through the / ragged sky, / / and / up a cloudy / draw,  

Chorus:

            / C   / /       / Am  
Yippe-ai - / ay, / / yippee-a o- / oh, / / (Coyote Yip)
/ F        /          /    / Am  / /
Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / /



/ Am                          /                / C                             
Their / brands were still on / fire and their / hooves were made of /steel,
/ Am                          /                 / C                           
Their / horns were black and / shiny and their / hot breath he could /feel,
/ Am
A / bolt of fear went / through him as they / thundered through the / sky,
/ F                      /                         / Am
For he / saw the riders / coming hard, / / and he / heard their mournful /cry.  

Chorus:

            / C   / /       / Am  
Yippe-ai - / ay, / / yippee-a o- / oh, / / (Coyote Yip)
/ F        /          /    / Am  / /
Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / /

/ Bbm                                                  / Db
Their / faces gaunt, their / eyes were blurred, their / shirts all soaked with / sweat, 
/ Bbm                                        / Db
He's / ridin' hard to / catch that herd but / he ain't caught them / yet, 
/ Bbm                             
Cause they've / got to ride for - / ever on that / range up in the / sky,
/ Gb                                       / Bbm 
All / horses snortin' / fire, / / as they / ride on, hear them / cry.

Chorus:

            / Db   / /       / Bbm  
Yippe-ai - / ay, / / yippee-a o- / oh, / / (Coyote Yip)
/ Gb        /          /   / Bbm  / /
Ghost / riders / in / the / sky, / /

/ 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                                     
Then / cowboy change your / ways today or / with us you will / ride,
/ G                                          / Bm
Trying to catch the / devil's herd, / / a - / cross these endless / skies. 

Chorus:

            / D   / /       / Bm  
Yippe-ai - / ay, / / yippee-a o- / oh, / / (Coyote Yip)

your missing the d minor on the "ghost riders in the sky" part. the original goes G "ghost riders" Em "in the sky" then Bm, in this case Am. So my guitar chords right before yippe-aiay are strummed like this, Fmaj "ghost riders" Dminor "in the sky" Am.Otherwise, great job! "Give me a mountain tempo in A minor" ;)
