Inspired by Zoë’s ramblings in Arizona and Sarah’s youthful over-exposure to books by Carlos Castaneda, amongst other things.


I go out in the light of morning
I go out in the light of day
Let the desert sky surround me
Let the desert have its way

Will you call
In the white light
In the dry grass
Crow, coyote, buffalo

I am an eagle flying over
I am a lizard on the ground
In your eyes there is a vision
In your ears there is a sound

Will you call
In the white light
In the dry grass
Crow, coyote, buffalo

Oh you better walk tall
See the crow fly, hear coyote call
Oh feel the ground shake
Buffalo runs, the desert’s awake


from Crow Coyote Buffalo, released November 24, 2008
Zoë Pollock (PRS) & Sarah McQuaid (IMRO)
Zoë: vocal, classical guitar
Sarah: vocal, steel-string guitar
