Eagle

V1
I saw an eagle fly today, it reminded me of you
Last I saw one floating by, was the day that you came due.
I took it as a sign, that you'd grow up big and strong,
But the Lord had other plans for you and soon he took you home.
I remember thinkin' at the time, I'll never last a day
But as the years keep rolling by, I see you everytime, I see an eagle fly

V2
I saw a butterfly today, it reminded me of you
We'd go out in the backyard and you'd chase 'em round and you
Would be laughing all the while, like you were the only child
Who knew that secret pleasure, on a precious sunny day
I remember thinkin' at the time, without you I'd be done
But as the years keep rolling by, I see you everytime, I see a butterfly

BR
Last night I had a crazy dream, and you were there.
You ran and jumped into my arms, and hugged my neck
You said I love you daddy, I remembered how it felt
And when I opened up my smilin' eyes and looked up high, I saw an eagle fly

Tag
Then I get down on my knees and pray, pray to God most every day, pray that when I look up to the sky, I see an eagle fly

V3
There are times in late December, when north wind starts to blow
And leaves are dancing all around, like a million butterflies,
I can't help myself, I know I promised not to cry
But every one of them looks like a day , a day without your smile

Tag
Then I get down on my knees and pray, pray to God most every day, pray that when I look up to the sky,
I see an eagle fly
