(Ghost) Riders in the sky – Popular chord!

The last days there’s been one chord which has reached top three on the visit-counter: (Ghost) Riders in the sky!

This is a song Johnny Cash made a cover version of. The original song was written by Stan Jones in 1948, and has been recorded by at least 50 artists. Among my personal favourites (in addition to Johnny Cash of course) is the version performed by the Blues Brothers in the movie “Blues Brothers 2000”.

It has been said that Stan Jones wrote the song based on a story he heard as a kid. -Scary story for a kid..?
