lyrics

Magpie
by Ian Tyson
(arranged 2012 by The Gords)

Magpie, you’re an early riser
Magpie, such a bold chastiser
Always waking up my wife and I,
You ol’ coyote of the sky

Magpie, some say you’re a bold deceiver
I say, I say you’re a true believer
And I know the west will never die
As long as you can fly

(Bridge) You travel around these hills like a gypsy
Your choice is meat for something to eat
You build a big house with a front and a back door
You want to be free

(Chorus) Holy Moses, Magpie
I am you, you are me

Walk that walk, talk that talk
Out on the trail, you got a beautiful tail
Riding on the back of the white buffalo
Magpie, you know the west will never die
As long as you can fly

Guitar solo

Magpie, some say you’re a bold deceiver
But I say, I say you’re a true believer
Magpie, I know the west will never die
As long as you can fly

(Bridge) You hang around these hills in the wintertime
(why’d you want to do that?)
If it was me, I’d be out of here, man
(Give me a couple’ seconds and I’ll grab my hat)
Magpie you’re a pretty bird
You just want to be free


(Chorus) Holy Moses, Magpie
I am you, you are me

Magpie, Magpie
I know the west will never die
