Thread Name: Utah Phillips Coyote
Subject: Utah Phillips "Coyote"
About three years ago at Club Passim in Boston, I heard Utah Phillips play a song about the coyotes down in Mexico - the people that ferry illegal immigrants across the border to the US, often exploiting and abusing them. Does anyone know what song this is? I only recall one line, I think it went "oh, Coyote, your heart is a stone."

A Phillips original perhaps? Or a song by someone else?
