Thread Name: ADD: Jingoistic song: The Eagle (Hank Cochran)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Jingoistic song: The Eagle
I'm not certain it's the right song, but Charlie Daniels' "In America" mentions the eagle (link)

Since there's so much extraneous commentary, I'll consolidate what we know this song request is about from both threads into one message:

Several times I've heard a song that goes something like

"The eagle is hurt, her feathers are ruffled"

and continues in a jingoistic vein that "America will do what she needs to do."

Does anyone have the complete lyrics? A search of the Forum, DT, Google, and Metacrawler come up with nothing.

Thinking on it, I believe that it deals with the September 11, 2001 incidents and the response to them. Here's what I think the first verse is, missing some of it:

The eagle is hurt, her feathers are ruffled
Make no mistake she is coming for you.
...........
Time as you know it has ended for you.

The group might be the "Full Gospel Trio" but I'm not really certain of that, either.

who sings it i think i know that one after feathers its you better watchout shes comming for you?

I would also like to know the name of the song the eagle is hurt

I also heard this song in 2003 or 2004 while driving around Cincinnati and listening to what I thought was a bluegrass station. The song sums up the climate during those years. I'm glad other people are looking for it. I would really like to have a copy of it.

Hi i would like to know does anyone know the name and artist of this song it goes something like this...i have searched and searched everywhere for it....please if you have an artist or anything please post .....thank you


the eagle is hurt her feathers are ruffled
make no mistake shes coming for you

the singing cookes are is artist the egal is the name

I believe it's sung by true gospel trio


Not sure if it's the Singing Cookes. They don't tend to be bluegrass, and though gospel is often heard on bluegrass stations, I haven't seen anything in their discography to indicate a song like this, though I can't rule it out.
