WHERE THE EAGLES FLY

Created for me by Wild Rider

Lying here awake and looking at the stars;
it seems so long ago that I was home -
Sometimes I wonder if I'll go back again
and it's times like these I feel so alone.

Refrain:
I long to be back in the mountains
where the eagles fly -
To sit and watch their flight
as they circle in the sky..
They have the taste of freedom
for which each of us would die;
Just take me to the mountains
where the eagles fly.

Wind picks ups the sand, vision is a blur;
I close my eyes and wish the night was day -
Smiling at the memories of home and family,
when morning comes, the memories fade away.

Refrain:

You can ask any soldier, sailor or marine
or anyone who wears the air force blue -
If you could have any wish, what would it be?
The answer will ring out clear and true:

Refrain:

Oh, I chose to be a soldier
and to fight for liberty -
I walk in others' footsteps
who died to keep us free.
I've taken up a rifle
and will use it if I must,
Praying that war will end -
and still in God I trust...

Refrain:

There will be a new tomorrow
when at last we can go home,
back into the loving arms
and never more to roam.
There will be a time for freedom
because we fought for liberty,
with the love of God and country
and all it means for you and me.

I am back upon the mountain
where the eagles fly -
Standing there and watching
as they circle in the sky -
I've got a taste of freedom
and it means the world to me;
Keep faith in your tomorrows
and keep our country free!


Remember the veterans
and those who are serving our country today

***Pray for Peace***
