Ghost Riders in the Sky is a song I've always enjoyed and I was delighted to find it on YouTube sung by Burl Ives. It was written and first performed in 1948 by the writer Stan Jones and then in February, 1949 Burl Ives gave us this simple version. It has been sung by many very well known artists (Johnny Cash and Frankie Lane to name but two) but this version remains my favourite.
I hope you will enjoy it along with me and perhaps let me know if you also enjoy Burl Ives singing it. Not only was Burl Ives a wonderful vocalist he later went on to become a brilliant actor.
