Loke E. Coyote

 
"Loke E. Coyote" is a Pagan rock band, led by a "Wiccabilly Priest" named Trickster. Various midwest Pagan musicians have been a part of this "Magickal Musical Mischievous Mayhem" that has become legendary in the Pagan community. The result has been a Pagan conglomerate of multiple musical genres and hilariously rip-roarin' songs that will have you laughing your arse off. The Gods must have been crazy to inspire this combination of talent, humor and fun, and we are so lucky they did!

The Loke E. Coyote website can be found at http://wiccabilly.com where you can find lyrics, CD's, cartoons, short stories, and lots more.  It's a Wiccabilly Circus of Fun.

Chords and lyrics to songs by Trickster :
 
Pan and Aphrodite A song about lust at first sight from the Druid Four Winds: a Pagan Rock Opera (Act 1). This musical of 24 original songs is a powerful and creative expression of the Pagan mind and heart dealing with the intensities of life, anguish, heartache, learning and our relationship with the Goddess and God.  This work blows "Jesus Christ Superstar" AWAY! Kudos to Trickster and the many talented Pagan artists and groups featured on this superstar double CD.
Beltane A song of whimsy, grace and fun. Also from Druid Four Winds.
Pagan Night Out This clever gem, which promotes one of the most successful grassroots movements in Paganism, "Pagan Night Out", is found on the MeGaPaGaTeXaPaLooZa Austin Pagan Pride CD.
Move Over Jehova What do you do when a J.W. knocks on your door at 9am? This song tells you what Trickster did. This song kicks that old "jealous God" to the curb.
Castin' Circle An opening ritual in song, by Trickster and Diana.
Labor Day of Love This is the true story of how Pagans came together to address hatred and intolerance.
W.I.C.C.A. This is Loke E. Karaoke at its best.  Have fun with this tune twister from the Trickster.

by Trickster

The Story: Stag and Flower have met and fallen in lust. Taking on the personalities of Pan and Aphrodite. they playfully chase each other in an ages old mating dance.

 

Opens with the playing of Pan pipes— see if you can fit them in your harmonica holder while playing guitar. Trickster plays harmonica in the instrumental verse (v 3).

 

Plays well with a blues pattern, or just play the chords.

I caught a glimpse of you thru the bushes and the trees.

     D                             E(iv)

You got my heart a poundin and I'm wobbly in the knees.

  D                            E(iv)

Pan and Aphrodite.  Every time we get the chance...

 

 

2. You are a nymph. I am a satyr

a lusty little nymph. a horny satyr

I'll show you my Pan pipe. maybe play a couple notes

I'm Venus on a half shell. would you like to float my boat?

when I look at you I want to sew some wild oats

sheep can go to heaven but I'd rather play with goats   (Ch)

 

3. Instrumental (Ch)

Move Over Jehova
Lyrics and Music by Trickster
 
intro:  G# A    G# A

    G#  A
v1.  I woke up Sunday morning and my head was mighty sore
G#                 A
    there were two Jehovah Witnesses a'knockin' at my door.
G# A
    They were preaching word-o'-god at ninety miles an hour
G#  A
but nine AM on Sunday is a most ungodly hour!
G# A
I thanked them for their interest and I told them that I'm Pagan
G#  A
the taller woman made a face that looked like Ronald Reagan.
G#    A
They said Jehovah sent them out recruiting in his name.
G# A                                                                                         A7
I   told them I respect their path... and asked them for the same.

                                D                                   A
ch1:   Move over Jehova, now do you understand?
                               E                                       A7
         Move over Jehova, here come Diana and Pan
                                D                               A
         Move over Jehova, oh baby son-o'-man
                               E                               A
         Move over Jehova, and dig it if you can

G#           A
v2. They had some propaganda printed on some ground up trees
they said "it's very interesting, take one, would you please?"
The pamphlet had a picture of an earthly paradise
a garden planet under God-- now wouldn't that be nice?
To make the dream come true we all must worship the messiah
but Pagans got it going on, I told them about Gaia
and lots of little villages with perfect trust and love
and we ain't got no rule you gotta fear some god above


ch2:     Move over Jehova, don't tell me what to do
           Move over Jehova, I don't believe in you
           Move over Jehova, let me out of your zoo
           Move over Jehova, and take your witnesses too

v3. (instrumental verse)

                                D                                     A
ch3:    Move over Jehova, don't be saving my soul
                                E                                 A7
          Move over Jehova, I got it under control
                                D                                                A
          Move over Jehova, don't throw me in your hell hole
                                E                                            A
          Move over Jehova, and let the boy rock and roll

G#           A
v4. The shorter woman asked me who I thought created me
I said I was the culprit, not some lofty deity
upon my birth on Mother Earth I was a lump of clay
and all my life's decisions made me what I am today
For better or for worse I know I did it to myself
so spare me all that will-o'-god, I'm not the devil's elf
I started singing Pagan songs and playing my guitar
they raced each other off the porch and took off in their car

ch4:    Move over Jehova, and let us do as we may
          Move over Jehova, we got the right to say "nay"
          Move over Jehova, now do you hear what I say?
          Move over Jehova, and let do it our way

ch5:    Move over Jehova, cause I do not wanna pray
          Move over Jehova, I got some music to play
          Move over Jehova, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
                                 E      (tacit)                       A   D Dm A   (e-f#-e-g>)
          Move over Jehova, but... blessed be anyway

Castin' Circle
by Trickster & Diana

intro:  notes are in (), chords are in CAPS.  Bend notes followed by "<"

          (e-f#-g#-)A (a-c#<) AA
          (e-f#-g#-)A (a-c#<) AA
          (a-b-c#) DD (d-f#<) DD
          (e-f#-g#-)A (a-c#<) AA
          (e-f#) EEE   DDD AAA  EEEE

    A
1. well I'm a magick musician and a Wiccabilly priest
and when I wanna cast circle I start off facing east
     D
I call to the east and to the element there
                  A
and then I let my lungs feast upon a breath of fresh air
    E7                                   D
I hear a reply just like the wind in the trees
                 A                     E 7
and I say "so mote it be!" (so mote it be!)

2. I turn to my right, or should I say doesil
and since I'm harmin' no one I guess I'll do as I will
I open my mouth and chant the things I desire
call to the south and to the spirits of fire
there's a warmth in my soul, I know they're speaking to me
and I say "so mote it be!" (so mote it be!)

             A                         D
Ch:     Casting circle, all around
            A                                  G         E
          Casting circle, make this sacred ground
            A                                         D
          Casting circle, without and within
                            D  D# E
          Let the magick begin


3. I turn once again so I am facing the west
to the element where dolphins like to frolic and rest
the water of life fills my cup to the brim
I take a big drink and then I go for a swim
their answer rolls in just like the waves on the sea
and I say "so mote it be!" (so mote it be!)

4. I've summoned three quarters, now it's time for the fourth
so I climb out of the water and I turn to the north
I stand on a mountain of sweet Mother Earth
I know that it's Samhain, time of death and rebirth
I start to rock out and shake the ground under me
and I say "so mote it be!" (so mote it be!) (ch)

5. Jesus left Chicago in his V8 Ford
up pulled the El Dorado of the Lady and Lord
they said "we're on our vacation and we're out for a spin
and we heard your invocation so we thought we'd drop in"
I bid them both welcome with a big "blessed be!"
and I say "so mote it be!" (so mote it be!) (ch)

Labor Day of Love
by Trickster

intro: (strum dramatically)

Eb(iii)                                E(iv)
Some gods let you party & some gods make you crawl
            Eb(iii)
But the god that Jack Harvey worships
                    E(iv)              F#(vi)       C#(i)  B
he don't like anyone at all

(pick up tempo, play with a bouncy feel)
E       A       E      A

     (A)          E          A                E                A
1. There's a military base and it's called Fort Hood
                    E         A                        E                 A
where the American army stands for freedom and good
    E               A                        E          A
strong brave men and women, ain't no chickens
        B
and some of them soldiers are Pagans and Wiccans
Well they follow their paths, they worship as they please
just like the US Constitution guarantees
in the First Amendment, it's our freedom of religion
when it comes to gods, you make your own decision


2. Well these Pagan soldiers who protect our nation
decided they'd form a little congregation
do some ritual and some celebration
called it "Open Circle", it's a big sensation
cause someone wrote a story in the local newspaper
it wasn't no bottom of the garbage can scraper
informative and fair, a good opinion shaper
until it reached the hands of a loony bin escaper

3 He's a preacher named Harvey from the town of Killeen
he was ignorant narrow minded bigoted and mean
barking and growling like a dog with rabies
telling everybody that witches eat babies
and he asked his followers to bring their guns
to church in case we try to snatch & eat their young'uns
a lot of good people tried to set him straight
but he wouldn't listen to them or let go of his hate
                G        F         E   A   E   A
cause it's hot as Hell in Texas
              G             F       E   A   E  A
and he's not quite well in Texas

4.Near Killeen & Fort Hood's a town called Copperas Cove
there's a witch shop there, it's a real treasure trove
they got crystals cards books & herbs anything you please
they even got Loke E. Coyote CD's!!!
Well Harvey decided he should run them out of town
he rounded up some people and he headed on down
but the Pagans got wind of it, we called up all our friends
cause we'll never let the burning times happen again

And it's hot as Hell in Texas
But we ain't going to Hell in Texas

5. Well the big day came and we met up at the store
there was at least 150 of us, maybe many more
there were Wiccans Druids atheists & even Christians too
with a cross and shirt that said "What would Jesus do?"
Harvey stamped and screamed, he rattled his saber
We waved a big sign, it said "love thy neighbor"
he said "you sinners & you witches gonna all burn in Hell
like the Southern Baptists, homos, and the Jews as well"

6. He said: "God hates sinners, God hates sinners
God hates sinners and we're all sinners
we're all sinners, every last one of us
all you unclean witches, all us Christians on the bus
you and me... everybody
we're all sinners and God hates sinners
and everyone's a sinner and God hates sinners
and everyone's a sinner and God hates everyone
god hates everyone, God hates everyone
God hates.....everyone"   (whao!)

7. Now I didn't quite know what to make of what he said
cause Jesus preached love & he was spouting hate instead
I said, "Exactly which god is it you're praying to?
is it Jesus Christ or is it Cthulhu?"

8. Well he shouted thru his bullhorn & we did some songs & chants
we offered him a drink in case he's thirsty from his rants
we got a little closer and he almost wet his pants
he thought we would attack, we did a spiral dance
he's afraid we'd hex him and he'd end up cursed
but he's already Jack Harvey, we can't make it any worse
ignorant narrow minded bigoted and bitter
the last thing he saw was us cleaning up his litter
                G        F           E A E A
cause it's hot as Hell in Texas
                     G           F           E A E A
but we ain't going to Hell in Texas
               G          F          E A E A
ring the Liberty Bell in Texas
              G        F          E A E A   A7
because all is well in Texas!!!
