Magpie Lyrics

Magpie
You're an early riser
Magpie
You're a bold chastiser
Magpie
Always waking up my wife and I
You old coyote in the sky
Magpie
Some say you're a bold deceiver
I say you're a true believer
Magpie
You know the west ain't never going to die
Just as long as you can fly
You travel all around these hills
Like a gypsy
I don't see the matter with that
Your choice is meat for something to eat
I don't have a problem with that
You build a big house
With a front and a back door
And you want to be free
Holy Moses magpie
I am you - you are me
Walk that walk
Talk that talk
Sing me a song of way long ago
Was it out on the trail
You got a beautiful tail
Riding on the back of the white buffalo
Did you cut a deal with the white buffalo?
You hand all around these hills
In the winter time
Why in the hell would you want to do that
If it was me I'd be out of here man
Give me a couple of seconds
And I'll grab my hat
Ah, magpie, you're a pretty bird
You just want to be free
Holy Moses magpie
I am you - you are me

Its more than seventy years since I lived in magpie country. The song brought me back to being a kid again, growing up on an Alberta farm. It is a fitting tribute to the coyote in the sky, the magpie.
