Vaughn Monroe - Ghost Riders In The Sky

Ya se acabo lo güeno...de momento....

Al llegar a casa, cansado del viaje, sin mucho animo, he rebuscado entre las canciones pendientes de poner que tenía y ha aparecido este tema, que curiosamente, será de los más antiguo, sino el más, que he puesto hasta el momento. Un clásico de las peliculas del oeste...

Espero que no veais como yo cabalgando fantasmas por el cielo...




"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 riders 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, and 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' fire, as they ride on, hear their 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"

Buena buena, te imagino al lomo de tu corcel buscando nuevas aventuras y parajes, yo de momento me quedo por aquí con el tema piscinas mojitos yu tal, que el bourbon es para hombres de verdad.
Por cierto The Doors o alguien parecido no hicieron una versión de este tema
