Lyrics for the Bicentennial Song of Tennessee

Today I saw an eagle flying

His colors they were red and white and blue

Today he loooked like he was cyring,

For, where are all the friends that he once knew?

Chorus:

And I said, Fly Eagle, Fly!

Go spread your freedom wings across the sky;

Don’t let ’em bring you down, they’ll chain you to the ground.

You gotta be strong to travel alone in the sky.

So Fly Eagle Fly! So Fly mighty Eagle fly!

Today I heard the eagle calling.

It echoed from the mountains to the sea;

But, again, the sounds he made were falling

Upon the deafened ears of those not free

Chorus

Today I saw an eagle flying

Is he headed for the skies He’s enver known?

Are the freedoms he has left behind him dying?

Will the eagle find another home?
