LIGHT AS A COYOTE"S DREAM

The last tired stars are fadin'
The wind is cry in' low.
The rollin' weeds go whinin'
Like tires down a far-off road.

These brown hills of Nevada,
So blue in the desert moon.
But not as blue as her eyes like the Washoe County skies
Where the fallen' stars once bloomed.

She was sweet as a mountain wildflower
With a voice like an easy rain.
And the kiss that she laid on these tired old eyes
Was light as a coyote's dream.

But with lies those eyes were smiling'
With such sweet laughin' style.
That hard old man up in heaven.
Well, I think even He must have smiled.

Far 'cross them old Slate Mountains
Another man holds her there.
Like mine, his hands tremble softly
Smoothin' down her long yellow hair,

She was sweet as a mountain wildflower
With a voice like an easy rain.
and the kiss that she laid on these tired old eyes
Was light as a coyote's dream.

Way down in the arroyo
Where the mesquite blooms so deep
Waking from his dark dog's dreaming'
Some coyotes hears me weep.

Lord, these hills ain't got no conscience
This valley ain't got no shame
To watch a good man cryin'
And never know his name.

She was sweet as a mountain wildflower
With a voice like an easy rain
And the kiss that she laid on these tired old eyes
Was light as a coyote's dream
