Updated: Nov 19, 2021

Hello! In today's harmonica lesson we're learning to play Ghost Riders in the Sky by Johnny Cash on C diatonic harmonica.


Here are the harp tabs:


Verse

5 -6 -6 -6 -7 7 7 7 -6 6 6 6 5 6

An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day

5 -6 -6 -6 -7 7 7 7 -8 8 8 8 7 8

Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way

-8 8 -10 -10 -10 -10 8 8 8 8 8 8 -8 7 -6

When all at once a might-y herd of red eyed co-ws he saw

-5 -5 -5 -6 7 7 7 7 7 -6 -6 6 -6

Ploughing through the ragged sky and up the cloudy draw


(Repeat tab for verse 2)


Chorus

5 5 5 6 (5 6)

Yippie yi ooh

-6 -6 -6 -6 (5 -4) 5

Yippie yi yay

-5 -5 -5 7 7 -6

Ghost riders in the sky
