Hoo, Lord

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
The farther west, the farther out
Yeah, that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
Just don't show me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust
I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood
An' blood never lies pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't kill coyotes

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
The farther west, the farther out yeah, that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood
An' blood never lies pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse Through the Hollywood hills
Just don't tell me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon Through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood
An' blood never lies pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't
True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't
True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

    My InterpretationI know there are some interpretations about native Americans, primarily through the line 'Pale face die.'

    But for me, this is a song about a man who wants to get out of the artificial life one might encounter in Hollywood. He wants to get back to the roots: Dig the dust and do barbeques in the hills.

    But he seems delusional. Maybe he took some drugs because he's still not in the vast lands. He's just talking about his plans while still being stuck in his old lifestyle. After all, he wants to ride a saber tooth horse or a paisley dragon.

    He's looking for the ultimate encounter of being eye to eye with a coyote hoping that this will make him a true man. But it's weird, and I think it's just a man talking big without really pulling through.
