Riders In The Sky

Riders In The Sky惡靈騎士

原名Ghost Riders in the Sky本來是一個美國牛仔的傳說故事'
由 Stan Jones作於1949年。

這首歌講述一個西部牛仔有一双特異的紅眼睛,
一次他看見天空有一些惡靈騎士正在追趕一群鐵牛,
接着他聽到一個聲音警告他,如果他不改變,
他便注定要加入他們的行列,永遠跟着魔鬼無止的在天空追趕鐵牛。

此曲版本亦有五十多個

The Shadows - Riders In The Sky是香港最流行的








曲詞
An old cowpoke 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'plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
Ghost herd in the sky

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
Their horns wuz black and shiny and their hot breaths he could feel
A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
For he saw the riders comin' hard and he heard their mournful cry

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
Ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
They're ridin' hard to catch that herd but they ain't caught them yet
They've got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
On horses snortin' flame an' fire, as they ride on, hear them cry

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
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 from hell a' ridin' on our range"
"Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride"
"A-tryin' to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies."

Yi-pi-yi-ay, Yi-pi-yi-o
Ghost riders in the sky
Ghost riders in the sky
