Here is one of the official songs of the Nahanni Camping and Fishing Club -

 

An old cowpoke 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 A plowin' through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh Ghost herd in the sky
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 He saw the riders coming hard and he heard their mournful cry
Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh 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 'aint caught 'em yet 'Cause they've got to ride forever in the range up in the sky

On horses snorting fire as they ride on hear their cry
Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh Ghost riders in the sky
(Harmonica Solo)

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 on

Tryin' to catch the devil's herd across these endless skies
Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh

Ghost riders in the sky
