Dear Mom by THC The Hippy Coyote
This song was recorded because a New York play wanted to include this song in their production. So Coyote recorded this to make it easier for them to use. The play storyline was about a soldier.
Coyote’s song, “Dear Mom,” is from the UNDERGROUND / SID’S PLACE rock opera movie. Tom Calder is living underground and cannot ever visit his family again. Coyote’s personal attachment to this song was originally a song of appreciation for his mother in the 1970s, but in 2003, his mother had disowned him, declared he “wasn’t her son,” and taken him out of her will. Perhaps all these factors combined to create such a moving an emotional song from Coyote.
