Happy Calgary Stampede - 2008

Ghost Riders In The Sky

An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red eyed cows he saw
Plowing through the ragged skies and up the cloudy draw...

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
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
For he saw the Riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry...

Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi yaaaaay
Ghost Riders in the sky...

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
He's riding hard to catch that herd but he 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 or a-riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today, or with us you will ride!
Trying to catch the Devil's herd, across these endless skies...

Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi Yaaaaay

Ghost Riders in the sky...
Ghost Riders in the sky...
Ghost Riders in the sky...
