Daily Word Prompt – Conundrum

coyote-gardenofthegods

Another Ian Tyson Cowboy song, but hey, it just so happens it has the daily word prompt: conundrum in it and I do live in the west.  I would take a picture of Oberon’s latest adventure, but it happened just the other night in the dark.  Now he’s afraid of the dark, a coyote ran through the yard and scared him. Now Obi is a little cautious when he has to go out.  I have to check it out first before he steps foot out the door.

Back to one of my favorite songs.  The Cowboy and the Coyote, by Ian Tyson

Listen Here:

Lyrics:

Coyote’s a survivor, I reckon he’s got to be.
He lives in the snow at 40 below or Malibu by the sea.
An’ I’m just an old cow puncher, I love to listen to his tune.
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an’ Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(try ‘er gang)
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an’ Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(fantastic. try the whole verse all together now)

Coyote’s a survivor, I reckon he’s got to be.
He lives in the snow at 40 below or Malibu by the sea.
An’ I’m just an old cow puncher, I love to listen to his tune.
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an’ Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(try ‘er gang)
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an’ Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(fantastic. try the whole verse all together now)

Well the cowboy is a conundrum, a contradiction in this age,
Well he says he’s doin’ fine on the poverty line with a workin’ cowboy’s wage.

The whiskey bottle cost 13 bucks, the big prairie moon is free.
So who is the dumber son of a bitch? The little coyote or me?
Yeh, who is the dumber son of a bitch? The little coyote or me? (take it)

* LEAD BREAK

So with thoughts of re-incarnation well I drifted off to dream.
I made it for life with a coyote wife and a bushy-tailed coyote queen.
Way down in the valley, at the old long noose saloon,
The cowboy got high on a bottle of rye, we got drunk on the moon.
The cowboy got high on a bottle of rye, we got drunk on the moon.
Everybody Take it home

Coyote’s a survivor, I reckon he’s got to be.
He lives in the snow at 40 below or Malibu by the sea.
An’ I’m just an old cow puncher, I love to listen to his tune.
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an’ Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(try ‘er gang)
Cause I get high on a bottle of rye an’ Coyote gets drunk on the moon.
(fantastic. try the whole verse all together now)
