Ghost Riders in the Sky

Ghost Riders in the Sky sung by Burl Ives:

The Burl Ives version embedded above is the original 1949 version of the much-covered song. The Vaughn Monroe cover released the next month is better known:

Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash all covered it. The most recent one I can find is Judy Collins' 2010 release:

There's one version I know of with particular local interest. Gene Davenport, retired professor of religion at Lambuth College (which became Lambuth University and then University of Memphis at Lambuth) does some singing, and his version can be heard on Spotify.
