  • Born among the fields where the corn is wild
    Amelia would sit and count Missouri miles
    She was a born-to-wander Kansas City child

    Sailing on the wings of a kite she'd play (sailing away)
    Dreaming of the time she would fly away
    And what was written on the wind, well you could say

    Amelia Earhart do you read me
    (Am I coming in loud and clear)
    Send a message if you need me
    And you know that I'll be there

    High up in the skies in a flying machine (flying away)
    Amelia looked down and realized her dream
    And there it stretched as far away as she could see

    People in the streets on the world below
    Listen for the news on the radio
    But could they see just how much further she would go

    Amelia Earhart do you read me
    (Am I coming in loud and clear)
    Send a message if you need me
    And you know that I'll be there

    Heaven fell to earth on a broken wing (falling away)
    A picture of a face in a magazine
    But what was written in the end was never seen

    Amelia Earhart do you read me
    (Am I coming in loud and clear?)
    Send a message if you need me
    And you know that I'll be there

    Amelia Earhart do you read me
    (Am I coming in loud and clear?)
    Send a message if you need me
    And you know that I'll be there
