"(Ghost) Riders in the Sky [DVD]" as written by and Danny Elfman....
An old cowboy went ridin 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
plowin through the ragid 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 comin hard and he heard their mournful cries

yippie i ohhh ohh ohh
yippie i aye ye ye
ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred
their shirts all soaked with sweat
he's ridin hard to catch that herd
but he ain't caught em yet
cause they got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
on horses snortin fire as they ride on hear their cries

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
tryin to catch the devil's herd across these endless skies

yippie i ohhh oh oh
yippie i aye ye ye
ghost riders in the sky
ghost riders in the sky
ghost riders in the sky
