Bill Callahan “Coyotes” – dreams of love

Credit: Oto Gillen

This is not Joni’s ‘Coyote‘, nowhere near it in fact as Bill Callahan sings of a coyote of a very different stripe.  Touching on the dreams of old dogs, a new child, and an open declaration of love – try not to fall for “that is how and why I love you now and have always and will always love you now…..yes, I am your lover man, yes I am your lover lover lover man.”  Impossible – you’re going to fall hard for this song.

Coyote‘  is taken from the new album “YTI⅃AƎЯ” which is out on October 14th, 2022 on Drag City.  It is a song best compared to the Grand Canyon – it’s gorgeous  We can’t tell you how long we’ve been saving that pun for, but this is the site’s 21st year, and at last there’s a song special enough to deserve it.

Oh – and just one last thing, the lyrics in this lyric video may not be the lyrics of this – or any other – song.  You’ll see what we mean.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
