Ghost Riders in the Sky

Spiderbait - 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
A-plowing' through the ragged skies, and up a 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-ya-yaaay - yippie-ya-ohhh
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 isn’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 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-ya-yaaay - yippie-ya-ohhh
Ghost riders in the sky
