I am the eagle, I live in high country
In rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky
I am the hawk and thereâ€™s blood on my feathers
But time is still turning they soon will be dry
And all of those who see me, all who believe in me
Share in the freedom I feel when I fly
Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops
Sail oâ€™er the canyons and up to the stars
And reach for the heavens and hope for the future
And all that we can be and not what we are
Words and music by John Denver and Mike Taylor
