Subject: RE: Query: Ghost Riders
I'm surprised no 'catters have commented on the tune to "Ghost Riders in the Sky"; apart for a change of time signature and a chorus it's the same (to my ears, at least) as the tune to "When Johnny comes marching home".

And, as Foolestroup has commented, it lends itself to other songs; often I've been known to stir the possum with "The wild colonial boy" sung to "Ghost riders in the sky".

Cheers, Rowan
