NOTE: To be in tune with the recording, use a capo at the first fret



The riff's 2, 3 and 4 aren't played exactly like this

in all of the song. It's just a guide for you to use

in your own improvisation



INTRO: Am



VERSE 1:

D

The night was cold

Am

And the wind was howling

D

I was awaken by the sound

Am

Of hoof beats pounding.

D

Outside the window, on the ground

Am

My old hound dog was growling



CHORUS:

F    G           Am

Grey Riders flew across my lawn

F         G             E

I looked again and they all were gone.

Am

That voice was calling

F

And it cut through the night

E

Come on boys, let her go.

VERSE 2:

Up on a hill

They rode in one long column

They were freezing with the chills

Of the new day dawning.

Their hair long and grey

They heard just one voice calling



CHORUS:

Grey Riders on the morning sky,

The sun made diamonds of their road-weary eyes.

That voice is calling

And it cut through the night

Come on boys, let her go.

CHORUS:

Grey Riders flew across my lawn

I looked again and they all were gone.

That voice was calling

And it cut through the night

Come on boys, let her go.

VERSE 3:

The night was cold

And the wind was howling

I was awaken by the sound

Of hoof beats pounding.

Outside the window, on the ground

Our hound dog was growling



CHORUS:

Grey Riders flew across my lawn

I looked again and they all were gone.

That voice was calling

And it cut through the night

Come on boys, let her go.
