A coyote beats a pretty good trail
Along a wooden fence line
He’s crossed over right here
I bet at least a hundred times
Tonight it will be much different
A 12 inch loop, hang bottom to top
He’ll make his run under that rail
But it won’t take him long to stop

(Chorus)
Coyote trapping ain’t easy
But neither is it hard to do
Like any other critter you’ve chased for a while
They’ve got their head scratchers too
Come pull up a chair and I’ll tell you
Tell you a little good news
Coyote trapping ain’t easy
But it won’t always give you the blues

I’ve heard so much about them
Stories - myths are made of
Like you can’t be settin’ barehanded
Cause they know you ain’t had no glove
A sense of smell so powerful
Profound, yes, so unreal
They just don’t know it’s a trap there boys
They know when it’s Chinese steel

(Chorus)

The sunrise kisses cattails on a marsh we’d paid to rent
A thousand dollars counting steel and poles, we’re thinking that’s money well spent
Sittin at camp killin time playin cards on into the night
But we’ll be ready to load and head out come first morning light

We’re muskrattin’
Waiting on a tide or two
We’re muskrattin’
And sipping on Mt Dew
Soon it’ll be all skinnin’ and boardin’
Thinkin’ ‘bout the things we’ll soon be affordin’
Muskrattin
Making a fortune Ya-Hoo

We start setting pretty heavy,
where they’re going not where they’d been
From shore line in to the tree line and then back out again
Feeling so good about placement we were high fiving all the way to the dock
Sharpening knives and talking ‘bout the money, that’d be waiting on the auction block.


We’re muskrattin’
Waiting on a tide or two
We’re muskrattin’
And sipping on Mt Dew
Soon it’ll be all skinnin’ and boardin’
Thinkin’ ‘bout the things we’ll soon be affordin’
Muskrattin
Making a fortune Ya-Hoo

A creek song.

Remembering back when I was a young kid in school.
Stuck inside on a hot sunny day man that seems so cruel.
I couldn’t wait until 3:15 it happened everyday of the week.
Me on a three speed Spider bike riding on down to Barren Creek.

With my fishing pole I caught plenty of fish from my favorite railroad tie
Why somebody labeled it a barren creek I often wondered why
I didn’t know where it started I was clueless to its end
I only know that many a day that creek was my only friend

Chorus
It was muddy and running fast
No I don’t know why
Sometimes I stood on the banks and laughed
Sometimes I sat and cried
A place where I could be alone
Tell all my troubles to
That creek never spoke a single word
But man it got me through

Well it’s been twenty years now I’ve returned to my favorite fishing hole
A place where as a boy I stood and poured out my heart and soul
I recall all the memories the stories this creek could tell
It’s good to see my best friend alive and doing well

Chorus
