This one contains the "feathers are ruffled" phrase.

THE EAGLE
Hank Cochran
Sung by Waylon Jennings

Lord knows I am peaceful when I'm left alone.
I've always been an eagle, been awhile since I have flown.
My claws are sharp as ever; so's my eagle eye.
Something's gonna go to ground when the eagle flies.

Lately, I've heard rumors that the eagle may be lame.
Just because I've been idle, don't mean that I'm tame.
You've jeopardized my freedom, my natural place to roost.
I can fly when I have to; they've turned the eagle loose.

So lay all your doubts aside when you go to bed tonight.
My feathers are all ruffled now; I'm ready for a fight.
Just because I took awhile to fly don't mean I don't care.
When you feel the shadow crossing, the eagle's in the air.

So lay all your doubts aside when you go to bed tonight.
My feathers are all ruffled now; I'm ready for a fight.
Just because I took awhile to fly don't mean I don't care.
When you feel the shadow crossing, the eagle's in the air.
