Old Coyote Town Lyrics

Old Coyote Town (古老郊狼镇) - Don Williams (唐·威廉姆斯)

Written by:Gene Nelson/Larry Boone/Paul Nelson

He's got a you us flag on his front porch

 

To remind everyone where he lives

 

And up in the attic

 

There are papers that prove

 

The old house is finally his

 

After thirty five years

 

The grass still don't grow

 

In that rock hard West Texas ground

 

Where my old dad still clings

To that old coyote town

 

Like horses the pick ups are

Parked out in front

 

Of a cafe that don't need a name

 

Where the old men rock

 

And the tumbleweeds roll

 

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

 

There's a hobo with his three legged hound

 

Waitin' for a train that no longer comes

 

To that old coyote town

 

And the interstate rumbles like a river that runs

 

To a rythm that don't ever slow down

 

As cars and trucks and time pass by

 

That old coyote town

 

Daddy fall's 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

 

'Til it's ashes to ashes

Dust to dust

 

For that old coyote town

 

Like horses the pick ups are parked out in front

 

Of a cafe that don't need a name

 

Where the old men rock

 

And the tumbleweeds roll

 

Past the boarded up windows down main

 

And the interstate rumbles like a river that runs

 

To a rythm that don't ever slow down

 

As cars and trucks and time pass by

 

That old coyote town

 

Got godbless that old coyote town
