I thought maybe it was this one, but maybe not.
-Joe Offer-

The Eagle and the Hawk

I am the eagle, I live in high country
In rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky
I am the hawk and theres blood on my feathers
But time is still turning they soon will be dry
And all of those who see me, all who believe in me
Share in the freedom I feel when I fly

Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops
Sail oer the canyons and up to the stars
And reach for the heavens and hope for the future
And all that we can be and not what we are

Words and music by John Denver and Mike Taylor

Here is is - written by Hap Palmer on his "Witches Brew" album. I gather that the recording came out in 1978.
-Joe Offer (e-mail sent)-

The Eagle
(Hap Palmer)

Born for a western sky,
Sweeping a circle as he flies.
He was free, when they let him be.

Brave and a hunter's son,
The land was his till he met a gun.
He was free, when they let him be.

In a land without a friend,
Will there be an empty sky,
Where the Eagle used to fly
In the wind?

There on a mountain high,
Wounded Eagle waits to die
He was free, when they let him be.

Dreaming of days gone by
When Indian children
watched him fly,
He was free, when they let him be.

In a land without a friend,
Will there be an empty sky,
Where the Eagle used to fly
In the wind?

Born for a western sky,
Sweeping a circle as he flies.
He was free, when they let him be.
He was free, when they let him be.

It's a song from fourth grade, I think it's called "The Eagle".

Oh, and it's "Born for a western sky", not "born on a western sky".xD

Hap Palmer is an excellent but unappreciated singer and writer of children's songs. He never caught on the way Raffi did.

Oh my goodness... I had been thinking about this song for years. I cried when I heard it in Elementary school. My goodness the other kids made fun of me, but I didn't give a darn. I loved that song. Thank you so much for giving me the lyrics and the name of the song.

This is a horrible song for children to be learning. For anyone to be thinking about, actually. As an adult, I get the message, but do our kids really need to learn it in elementary school??
