This is a great cover version of the famous, "Ghost Riders In The Sky". Great arrangement and production. Really nice mix and atmosphere to the track. Excellent subdued instrumentation and very nice use of the deep reverb effects. This is really fine rendition of this song and would clearly find a home in a movie or TV show.

    - Chet Nichols

Enjoyable folk song! Great production balance! All the needed elements are subtle but powerful. Great vocal. Story is easily heard. Well done!!

Lyrics
Ghost Riders

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 sky
and up the cloudy draw

Ohhhhhhhh!

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

Yippi yi Ohhhh
Yippi yi Yaaaay
Ghost Riders in the sky

Their faces, gaunt their eyes were blurred
their shirts all soaked with sweat
their riding heard to catch that herd,
but he ain't caught 'em yet

'cause they've got to ride forever on the
range up in the sky
on horses snorting fire,
as they ride on hear their cry

Yippi yi Ohhhh
Yippi yi Yaaaay
Ghost Riders in the sky

As the riders loped on by him
he heard one call his name,
if you want to save your soul hell
a-riding on our range

Then cowboy change your ways today
or with us you will ride,
trying to catch that Devils herd
across these endless skies

Ohhhhh
Yippi yi Ohhhh
Yippi yi Yaaaay

Ghost Riders in the sky
