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,  
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,  

            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,
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.  

            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, 
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.

            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,
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. 

            D           Bm  
Yippe-ai -  ay,  yippee-a o- oh,  (Coyote Yip)
G                      D    
Ghost  riders in  the  sky...

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" ;)
