Old Coyote Town
By Don Williams
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
rmofle at

Heís got a US flag on his front porch
     F                      C 
To remind everyone where he lives
    F                         C
And up in the attic there are papers that prove
    Am                   G
The old house is finally his
      Em                    F  
After thirty-five years the grass still donít grow
        Dm        Am           C
In that rock hard west Texas ground
      F                C              F     G    C
Where my old dad still clings to that old coyote town

Chorus 1:
     Em                      F 
Like horses the pick-ups are parked out in front
     Em                     F
Of a cafe that donít need a name
          Am7                  C
Where the old men rock and the tumbleweeds roll
         F                       G
Past the boarded up windows down Main

Waist high weeds hide a for sale sign
At the drive-in where my innocence died
With a rusty advertisement, dangling by a nail
Says Popcorn and Pepsi for a dime
And down at the depot where I left for good
Thereís a hobo with his three-legged hound
Waitiní for a train, that no longer comes to that old coyote town

Chorus 2:
And the interstate rumbles like a river that runs
To a rhythm that donít ever slow down
As cars and trucks, and time pass by 
That old coyote town

Daddy falls asleep in the living room
On the sofa with the TV on
Sometimes he waits for a phone call from me
Sometimes he waits too long
But I still think of the people and the place that he loves
How much longer will they be around
Till its ashes to ashes, dust to dust
For that old coyote town

Chorus 1
