BACK AS AN EAGLE (For John Denver)

( STEVE DAFOE 2005)
(COPYRIGHTED)


CHORUS :

D9 D7 D
AND I KNOW YOU'RE BACK AS EAGLE
'CAUSE YOU SAID YOU WOULD IF YOU DIED
STILL A SHOCK WHY YOU WENT AWAY

G Fmaj7
HOPE YOU DIDN'T LIE
YOU AND THE MUSIC LIVE ON

D9 D7 D
THAT YOU'D BE BACK AS A BALD EAGLE
KNOW WE NEED TO ALWAYS SAY GOODBYE
KNOW THAT WE ALWAYS NEED TO TRY

G Fmaj7
OH JOHN, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO?
I THOUGHT YOU KNEW GOD?
COULD YOU AT LEAST SAY WHY?




VERSE 1:

G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
I REMEMBER YOUR EYES SO BRIGHT AND ALIVE
WHEN YOU TOOK THAT FIRST DEEP SEA DIVE
C Fmaj7
YOUR PASSION IGNITED BEING WITH COSTEAU
THAT INSPIRED THAT GREAT SONG... CALYPSO
G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
WHEN THE SEA JUMPED INTO YOU
A NEW COURSE IN LIFE, ONLY YOU KNEW..... TO: CHORUS




VERSE 2:

G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
YOU STARTED A LIFE AT TWENTY SEVEN
IN NATURE'S HOME , A PLACE YOU'D NEVER BEEN
C Fmaj7
YOU SAW THE MOUNTAINS AND THE GOLD SKY
AND YOU KNEW IT'D BE HARD TO SAY GOODBYE
G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
FIRST TIME YOU SAW THE EAGLE IN THE SUN
BEEN SOME TIME SINCE YOU'D HAD THIS MUCH FUN....TO: CHORUS


VERSE 3:

G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
YOUR LIFE FOLLOWED THE TWISTS AND TURNS
LOVE AND DIVORCE TO WHICH YOU LEARNED
C Fmaj7
THAT WE FOLLOW MANY COUNTRY ROADS
NEVER SURE OF WHICH ONE'S TO TAKE....
G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
AND FROM YOUR HEART YOU WROTE THE SONGS
THEN PLAYED THEM FOR YOUR LIFE'S CALLING...

VERSE 4:

G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
YOUR MUSIC LIVES ON BUT IF YOU WERE HERE
YOUR HEART WOULD SINK AS YOU CRIED A TEAR
C Fmaj7
FOR WHILE YOUR SONGS INSPIRE MANY STILL
SADLY, YOUR MESSAGE MOVES FAR TOO FEW
G\C D4 ( Hold B & E on 1st FRET)
SO WHEN I SEE AN BALD EAGLE ON A HILL
WITH A TEAR IN ITS EYE, I'LL KNOW IT'S YOU.... TO: CHORUS
