The Pauper

by Richard Del Connor, The Hippy Coyote THC, "Dicky Dare"

INTRO:  (

VERSE 1:
_
You may not know my true name

__
And please don't ask for faith and trust

_
Don't worry about my clothes

_
For I'm not ashamed

I like me as I am I won't adjust

CHORUS 1:
_
I've been a poor man for most all my life

_
'though sometimes the going's been rather good

_
I may never own my home or have a wife -- but that's alright

I'm a free and restless hungry man

 

CHORUS 1:
_
There's a hungry man underneath my clothes

__
Hungry for more than food

_
My inner feelings I don't always show

_
A pauper knows he's always alone


Verse 2:
_
So don't try to take advantage

__
Cuz I've really got nothing to lose

__
I stand by my friends and what I have means a lot to me

__
And when I fight I play by my own rules

 

Chorus 2:
_
There's a hungry man underneath my clothes

__
Hungry for more than food

__
My inner feelings I don't always show

__
A pauper knows he's always alone

__
A pauper knows he's always alone

LAST VERSE:
_
You may not know my true name

__
And please don't ask for faith and trust

_
Don't worry about my clothes

_
For I'm not ashamed

I like me as I am I won't adjust

LAST CHORUS:
_
I've been a poor man for most all my life

_
'though sometimes the going's been rather good

_
I may never own my home or have a wife -- but that's alright

I'm a free and restless hungry man

Coyote used capo on Alvarez guitar for THE PAUPER

This is when Coyote was inspired to play flute.

Waking up from a dream that seemed to be a past life, Coyote, then known as Richard Del Connor or "Dickie Dare," wrote the short story, that became the rock opera, THE PAUPER.

Coyote envisioned himself as a wandering minstrel from Ireland, in England, over 400 years ago, playing a small Spanish guitar.

Accidentally sucked into a witch's sacrifice, he is transported into another world that he takes advantage of...and pays the ultimate price.

The flute that Coyote purchased in 1976 to perform this rock opera, is the same flute he plays and records with today in 2010.

The entire rock opera was not recorded, but a dozen songs were recorded in 4-track and 16-track studios in 1976-1978.

Some of these songs will be available here, soon.

"Locomotive Breath" by Jethro Tull.

"Aqualung" by Jethro Tull.
