Flatland Cavalry - Coyote (The Ballad of Roy Johnson) lyrics

[Verse 1] Well, I spend all day sittin' in the shade Waitin' in my pickup truck In not too long, an old man drives by He stops to see what's up I had to pull on over and give my eyes a break You're a busy man, nothin' to see here So we send him on his way I see his taillights fadin' And I grab my gla** of tea Truth is, my name's Roy Johnson Coyote is my trade Not five minutes later A mesquite bush starts shakin' Like it was afraid Fifteen men, women, and children Jumped in the back of my Chevrolet Saw them tremblin' in my rearview mirror Through my aviator shades Said, “me, I'm old Roy Johnson And coyote is my trade.” [Chorus] ‘Cause you won't hear me comin' You won't see my face I cut that trail a thousand times All without a trace It's my line of business No, it ain't a pretty thing My name is Roy Johnson Coyote is my trade [Verse 2] I did what my mama told me I got my four year degree Now I'm an expert in logistics I get product from A to B No, I don't cut no corners I've always got a plan If you're lookin' for my services Amigo, I'm your man I'll get you across that Rio Welcome to the USA Dig that, say the name's Roy Johnson Coyote is my trade [Chorus] No, you won't hear me comin' You won't see my face Well, I cut that trail a thousand times All without a trace It's my line of business No, it ain't no pretty thing My name is Roy Johnson Coyote is my trade [Verse 3] Well, I clearly remember Like it was yesterday I had that Chevy parked right under My usual spot o' shade Not five minutes A mesquite bush started shakin' Like it was afraid Fifteen federale jumped out They all knew my name [Chorus] I guess they saw me comin' They saw my face And I cut that trail a thousand times Guess I left a trace It's my line of business And I ain't ashamed to say “My name is Roy Johnson Coyote is my trade.” [Outro] Now I spend all day sittin' in the shade Waitin' in my pickup truck
