                    COYOTE   -   JONI MITCHELL
                  ------------------------------





                             from the album 'Hejira'
                             tabbed by Howard Wright

The tuning for this is   (low to high)  C G D F C E

As usual, it's the shapes that count here - I've tried to give some 
idea of strumming patterns etc, but if you concentrate on the changes
between shapes and listen to the record to suss out the ryhthmn you
can't go far wrong.

The words and shapes might not match exactly, but it should be pretty 
clear where the changes go.

Most of the rest of the song follows the same changes.

There aren't any other shapes in the rest of the song anyway, so once
you've sussed out these shapes you should have it.


Any questions etc, let me know

Enjoy !
