Me & The Eagle Lyrics

The eagle looked down on the river below
And he wrapped his wings round him and he fell like a stone
And the big salmon fought but the talons held true
And shuddered as the world turned from silver to blue

I stood there in awe though I'd seen it before
I was born in these mountains and I'll die here for sure
I have traveled around, I've seen city lights
But nothing that shined like the big sky at night

Some mornings will find me up above the timberline
Lonesome don't seem like much once you're this high
And when it's all said and done, I usually find
Me and the eagle are of the same mind

Now when I was young I took me a wife
But she never took to the high country life
So now I'm alone, I don't really mind
But her name echoes down from the canyon sometimes

Some mornings will find me up above the timberline
Lonesome don't seem like much once you're this high
But when it's all said and done, I usually find
Me and the eagle are of the same mind

In my dreams there's a horse, he stands eighteen hands high
He's as white as the snow and there's fire in his eyes
And he'll bare only me, though others have tried
And together we'll travel up across the divide

Some mornings will find us up above the timberline
Lonesome don't seem like much once you're this high
Oh, when it's all said and done, I usually find
That me and the eagle are of the same mind

Me and the eagle are of the same mind
