    Lyrics

    Was a cowboy I knew in south Texas
    His face was burnt deep by the sun
    Part history, part sage, part mesquit
    He was there when Pancho Villa was young

    And he'd tell you a tale of the old days
    When the country was wild all around
    Sit out under the stars of the Milky Way
    And listen while the coyotes howl

    And they go... poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo
    poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo

    Now the longhorns are gone
    And the drovers are gone
    The Comanches are gone
    And the outlaws are gone
    Geronimo is gone
    And Sam Bass is gone
    And the lion is gone
    And the red wolf is gone

    Well he cursed all the roads and the oil men
    And he cursed the automobile
    Said this is no place for an hombre like I am
    In this new world of asphalt and steel

    Then he'd look off some place in the distance
    At something only he could see
    He'd say all that's left now of the old days
    Those damned old coyotes and me

    And they go poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo
    poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo

    Now the long horns are gone
    And the drovers are gone
    The Comanches are gone
    And the outlaws are gone
    Now Quantah is gone
    Stand Waite is gone
    And the lion is gone
    And the red wolf is gone

    One morning they searched his adobe
    He disappeared without even a word
    But that night as the moon crossed the mountain
    One more coyote was heard

    And he'd go, poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo
    poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo

    poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo
    poo yip poo yip poo
    poodi hoo di yip poo di yip poo
