The Stone Coyotes

Spin Around the Sun

The Stone Coyotes
written by B. Keith/D. Tibbles


Little sister has her best dress on

Getting ready to dance till dawn

Talked to Johnny just the other night

Can’t make it – Got cut in a fight


As we spin around, spin around the sun

As we spin around, spin around the sun


Down on the corner of Sunset and Vine

Saw a man – He carried a sign

“The world will end on the First of June”

Sang “Amazing Grace” and he sang it in tune


Billy drove through the old side of town

Streets torn up and buildings torn down

Poor Billy – Now whatcha gonna do?

“Goin’ down to Macon in my Blue Suede Shoes”


People talkin’ on the telephone

Don’t want to stand on this rock alone

They need affection, someone to care

Lost the connection – Is anybody there?
