ELI'S SONG
Written by Jack Williams
As sung by John Denver on "Spirit" (1976)

Born in the month of June, no silver spoon to help you out,
Your mother had you naturally; naturally's he way you came out.
You know your own mind and you show it to me.
Give me the high sign when you want to be free,
And open up my eyes to the wonders that you see.

CHORUS: See the airplane fly.
See the trees rush by.
Be brave and strong when you hurt yourself,
And don't you have a worry in the world.

For the love that's been given you is the one thing time can't erase,
And every day it's growin' like the knowin' smile on your face.
You're startin' out strong, you get a kick out of life.
You like to sing songs, be in the spotlight,
And when everybody's watchin' you shine so bright. CHORUS

You know your own mind and you show it to me.
Give me the high sign when you want to be free,
And open up my eyes like your mother did for me. CHORUS
