I've seen that boneyard rider
A shadow black like the night
And he cried, "'pon earth and sky, tread lighter
Lest your way
I soon may ride"

He passed his hand 'cross the water
And turned his face toward the sun
And he cried, "So I, the boneyard rider
Swear by blood and fire,
My will be done."

We burned our bridges brighter
And cast our dead out to sea
And I cried, "Oh, damned am I, dark rider
Don't you show
No mercy?"

You see that comin' fire
"Vengeance mine," sayeth he
And to die beside the boneyard rider
Such is doom
And destiny
