this is the first part:

There once was a silver grey fox of great beauty
who lived very deep in the wood
Afraid of the great meadow where life once before
had treated her worse than it should
And to think of the mountain beyond the great meadow
did surely bring fear to her heart
For she'd heard the stories of all the great hunters
and she shivered and cried in the dark

I know this song exists because I have it on an old tape that I recorded from the radio. But I don't remember the title. The song starts out with this line:

"There once was a silver grey fox of great beauty who lived very deep in the woods."

The song is about the fox and an eagle falling in love.
Can anyone tell me what the title is?
Thanks.

Hi, Mr. Dusty - I changed your thread title to something more specific so people will notice it more (we've had lots of threads titled "I am looking for a song"). I hope you can still find it. It might be a good idea to bookmark this page and come back to it every once in a while.

More than one song begins "I am an Eagle," one sung by Eagle Scouts.
I don't believe any of them are related to the story of the silver gray fox and the eagle, requested here and partly posted by Jan back in 1998 (the one I would like to get as well).
It is not the Aesop fable about the fox and the eagle either.

Actually, yes there is. I just confirmed that a singer of the name Red Rhett Davis does sing THE SONG OF THE SILVER GREY FOX I AM THE EAGLE posted by Jan Black, which is also the song that in the chorus says, "I am the eagle, the sweet soaring eagle. I've come to take you away." Meaning the fox climbs on the eagle's back to take him away because they are in love.

I have been looking all over the internet for anything about him but I have come up with nothing. I know that he sings that song because my mother has it on cassette tape and at the end of the song they announced that the song was sung by Red Rhett Davis. It is such a beautiful song, the eagle says to the fox know matter what others have done I will not harm you and the fox climbs on the eagles wings and they go for a ride but at the end there from two totally different worlds so they have to live apart.

Crazy--a memory of a favorite childhood song ("the fox and the eagle" as I remembered it) popped into my head today, so I did a quick internet search to see if I could figure out who sang it, etc.

What a surprise to find others looking for the same tune! It's great to have figured out the singer and title...any luck with tracking down a copy?

I have searched the net and found that this sight is the only one that refers to a song I used to sing many years ago, I remember the melody and one verse and the chorus.(the same lyrics everyone else seems to remember.

Would really appreciate the lyrics for the complete song if anyone out there can provide them.

From: GUEST,gonzo11
Date: 27 Jul 04 - 06:12 PM

My mom pieced together what appears to be nearly all of the song from multiple partial recordings. We're still looking for a complete good quality recording. Here are her transcribed lyrics:

I AM THE EAGLE
by Rhett Davis

There once was a silver grey fox of great beauty, who lived very deep in the wood
Afraid of the meadow where life once before had treated her worse than it should.
And to think of the mountain beyond the great meadow did surely bring fear to her heart,
For she'd heard the stories of all the great hunters and shivered and cried in the dark.
Then tired of living a life in dark shadows, the fox ventured out in the light
And rejoiced at the sound and the smell of the meadow while keeping her shelter in sight.
Then all at once such a fear overcame her as a shadow passed over the sun
And as she heard the cry of the great hunting eagle, she knew it was over and done.

CHORUS: For I am the eagle, the sweet soaring eagle, I've come to take you away
High up the mountains and sparkling blue rivers and show you the place where I stay.
Please do not fear me for I will not harm you no matter what others may say.
For though it is true that our lives should not mingle, I'm in need of some friendship today.

Though she didn't know why, she accepted the offer and reluctantly climbed on his back
And the woods and the meadow were left far behind her. It seemed she would never get back.
Then the fox sensed a yearning deep within the great eagle and she felt something stirring her too.
Could she, a fox, fall in love with the eagle, could he fall in love with her too?
Could this eagle be lonely and searching for someone to help him rule his domain?
Had he ever had someone to love and protect him and bring him in out of the rain?
And the eagle spoke soft and his words were a wonder, in a voice touched with sadness it seemed
Even though I must hunt in the name of survival, I need not kill all that I see.

CHORUS ENDING WITH TWO EXTRA LINES:

I've need of some friendship today
I've need of some love today (sung very slowly).

I have always believed the artist name was Rhett Davis, this song still plays on CFCW radio out of Camrose Alberta {the only radio station I have heard it on.

According to the music man at CFCW it was only released as a single on 45rpm disc.

This song according to CFCW radio station in Camrose, Alberta, and
CISN FM radio station in Edmonton, Alberta, is I AM THE EAGLE sung by
RHETT DAVIS. The song was sent to those two radio stations as a demo,
sometime around the mid 1980's.

Damn, I've been searching for the artist/lyrics of this song off and on for couple years. = )

I used to listen to this song as a kid, I had it on a 45rpm record. I'm pretty sure it had a yellow label, but for the life of me, I can't find it anymore.

We could all finally rest easy if I could just find that 45. Hehe.

Nice to see that I'm not the only one "out there" looking for it.

Hello ..... smiles..... this is wonderful knowing that someone is familiar with the song ~ and that someone shares the same passion for the song as I. Is it possible that you still have your mother's copy of the cassette around that may be able to be copied. To my knowledge after a search in the Canadian media the name of the artist is Rhett Davis~ he only sang a few songs ..and this one is the only one that seemed to hit air time. I recall hearing the song being played in the mid 70's and would dearly love to have a copy of the music itself. The lyrics are great to have and to read... I hear the music in every ounce of me when I read the words~ it is a challenge to translate that thru to others that do not share the same passion for the glorious song. Please write Daylin...... thank you...

I think I have a solution to our searching. I live in Edmonton and I too have been trying to find "I Am The Eagle" by Rhett Davis. I have a line an old LP with this song on it. I still have an old turn table so I can convert it to an audio tape. I have never tried to convert from an audio tape to CD but will give it a try.
In the mean time, as soon as I can get the LP I will try to produce a decent Audio tape and if any one is interested you can send me an E Mail with your address I would be happy to send a copy to you.

I recorded this song on tape from CISN radio station one week ago. I have since put it onto a CD, but the very last part was cut off by the radio station as they quite often do. The last words sung that were cut off were " I've need of some love today" the "today" that is sung slowly was the abrupt ending point of the song. Until I can get the complete song this will suffice. I may be able to share this song but would have to be taken with the other 24 songs on the CD.

I have been trying to find this song for over twenty years, but I didn't know who sang it or the actual title, and it seemed no one else had ever even heard of it. The last time I heard it was on the radio; I was twelve years old, standing in the kitchen at my aunt's house in Nova Scotia, trying hard to hear the words over the noise my young cousins were making. I no longer live in Canada (I'm in the US) and I'm a long (long) way from twelve, but I would dearly love to have this song somehow.

Dear Jim,

I also live in Edmonton and have been trying to find the lyrics to I Am the Eagle by Rhett Davis. Did someone send them to you? Can you send them to me?
I would be happy to buy the recording, but since he only recorded it as a single and never made an album or CD, there is no way to buy this song and the beautiful rendition of it that Rhett Davis did. I'd also like to know who is the author of the lyrics.

Gwynn Alcorn

Dear Garry,

That's wonderful that you managed to record I Am the Eagle by Rhett Davis on the CISN radio station.

Would you mind sending me a copy that I can download or play through my speakers so I can write down the lyrics?

Thank you so much. I've tried to get the lyrics to this song for more than 20 years and even the radio station disk jockeys told me it was impossible to buy.

Gwynn

So far I have a copy of the words - but not the music. I would like to find a copy of the song on the net. I understand that someone in Edmonton has made a tape of it. I grew familiar with the song on our now defunct country radio station in Kamloops

This made my day. I have been searching for that song for more than 20 years. Every time I went by a record store I searched for hours. I have known for years that the artist was Rhett Davies Davis and the name of the song but could never find it. Thank you for posting the lyrics and the song on your blog Pete and thank you everybody else for contributing.

I AM ALIVE AND WELL mainly because of wonderful folks like you who have been searching for all these years for "I Am The Eagle". I must confess I had a lump in my throat(several lumps actually) when I read the messages from people telling others how much the song has meant to them. You all have paid me the most fantastic compliment that I could have ever received. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I am still performing and writing. My wife & kids & I and have been living in Winter Park FL (suburb of Orlando) since 1985 by way of Nashville (where I am the eagle was recorded)by way of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. If any of you have been there then you will know where the inspiration for the song came from.
If any of you are still interested in an original copy of "I Am The Eagle", I am delighted to say that I have recently included it on a new CD entitiled "SPIRITS" along with nine other original songs. Some from my first album and some new material. Unfortunately the CD is available only locally or by mail. Please send money order to Rhett Davis c/o Aquarian Records, 702 St. Dunstan Way, Winter Park FL 32792 and I will get one sent right out to you. You can reach me by email: okvalleyfl@att.net. Once again thanks for all the kind words and A big thanks to MUDCAT CAFE for posting all the letters. I LUV YA! Cheers Rhett Davis

I am so glad to see the interest in "The Eagle". It is one of the most frequently sing songs at our Sing-a-longs. But I have an inside track and have known Rhett and his wife, Laurie, for almost my whole life. As Rhett says, if you know the Okanagan Valley, you will understand the inspiration for his songs. Don't hesitate to order his CD from him. It's great!

What this song means to me personally is (beyond the emotions and tears it invokes from me) that powerful entities need not abuse the power they possess. Live and let live should have been the 11th commandment!

Nations, corporations, unions, individuals please take note!

Also, the song is just plain beautiful!

Cheers,

Incredible. I've been looking for this song since I heard it in the late 70s. Nobody I talked to had ever heard of it and no amount of googling 'fox' 'eagle' got me anything. Then tonight, JACKPOT! I'm buying it right now.
