Piliohaのスラックキーギターで聴くGhost Riders In The Sky

Pilioha “Ghost Riders In The Sky

ピリオハのゴーストライダースインザスカイ

印象的なギターリフですね。曲名は知らなくても耳にした方も多いと思います。

以前ご紹介した、”12th Street Rag“に雰囲気が似ていますね。そうそう、あれもPiliohaのライブ動画でした。

アルバム「ピリオハ」に収録。

ジャンルとしてはカウボーイソングというのでしょうか?
オリジナルはヴォーン・モンローだそうです。

気になったのでオリジナルも探してみました。

Vaughn Monroe – Riders in the Sky – 1965 concert performance

歌詞はlyrics007から。

“Ghost Riders In The Sky” Lyrics

An old cowboy 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-plowing through the ragged sky and up the 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 coming hard and he heard their mournful cry

Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi yaaaaay
Ghost Riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts all soaked with sweat
He’s riding hard to catch that herd, but he ain’t caught ‘em yet
‘Cause they’ve got to ride forever on that range up in the sky
On horses snorting fire
As they ride on hear their cry

As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul from Hell a-riding on our range
Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
Trying to catch the Devil’s herd, across these endless skies

Yippie yi Ohhhhh
Yippie yi Yaaaaay

Ghost Riders in the sky
Ghost Riders in the sky
Ghost Riders in the sky
