I AM THE EAGLE (Rhett Davis) Rhett Davis - 1976 There once was a silver-grey fox of great beauty Who lived very deep in the woods Afraid of the meadow, where life once before Had treated her worse than it should And to think of the mountain beyond the green 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 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 I am the eagle, the sweet soaring eagle I've come to take you away High up the mountain, past 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 Iíve a-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 stir in 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 For I am the eagle, the sweet soaring eagle I've come to take you away High up the mountain past 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 Though it is true that our lives should not mingle Iíve a-need of some friendship today I've a-need of some friendship today I've a-need of some love today (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2008)
