I am the eagle, I live in high country
In rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky
I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers
But time is still turning they soon will be dry
And all those who see me and all who believe in me
                                     F  E  A
Share in the freedom I feel when I fly

      D                            D/C bass     A
Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops
 Dmaj7         Bm         G           A
Sail o'er the canyons and up to the stars
     D             D/C bass    G/B bass          D
And reach for the heavens and hope      for the future
    D/C bass     G/B bass  Em7        A   
And all that we "can" be, not what we are

B(add E)  A  G6  Fmaj7-5   E
