In November 1975, Joni flew to the East Coast to join Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue, where she met a playwright, sometime musician, film actor, self-styled cowboy named Sam Shepard.
Shepard and Joni were exactly two days apart in age; they both turned thirty-two during their time on the tour.
During the tour, a song started coming to her, and she wrote pieces of it during bus rides.
Called Coyote, it would be one of the wittiest, sexiest, and most un-self-pitying songs, telling the story of a woman in a transient situation who meets a stranger from a beguiling different background: a cowboy.
A brief, humorous but avariciously erotic affair seems to ensue in funky roadhouses and hotels with lots of "keyholes and numbered doors."
For years, fans who loved the casual, devil-may-care abandon of the song have wondered who "Coyote" was.
"Coyote" was Sam Shepard.
