Sung By: Ian Tyson (Cowboy Legend)
CD: All The GoodâUns
Written By: Ian Tyson
Transcribed By: M. Lawrence
Intro: A D E A D E
Yo[D]u're an ea[E]rly riser
Yo[D]u're a b[E]old chastiser
Al[D]ways waking [E]up my wife and [A]I
You old co[D]yote in the s[E]ky
Some say (some s[D]ay) you're a b[E]old deceiver
[A]I say (I s[D]ay) you're a t[E]rue believer
Y[D]ou know the w[E]est ain't never gonna d[A]ie
Just as l[D]ong as you can f[E]ly
(1st Chorus)
[F#m]You roam all around these hills
Like a gypsy
I don't see the ma[A]tter with t[E]hat
Your ch[F#m]oice is meat for something to eat
I don't have a pro[A]blem with t[E]hat
You b[F#m]uild a big house
With a front and a back door
And you want to be f[A]ree
Holy Moses ma[D]gpie
I am you - y[E]ou are me
W[A]alk that walk
Talk that talk
S[D]ing me a song of w[E]ay long ago
Was it o[A]ut on the trail
You got a beautiful tail
Ri[D]ding on the back of the wh[E]ite buffalo
Say Ma[A]gpie
[D]Ah, the w[E]est ainât never going to d[E]ie
Just as lo[D]ng as you can f[E]ly
Old coyote in the s[A]ky ö is a magpie
(Instrumental) ö D E A D E
(2nd Chorus)
You hang all around these hills
In the winter time
Why in the world 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
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
Did you cut a deal with the white buffalo?
Say Magpie
You know the west ainât never gonna die
Just as long as you can fly
