  • Well, he rides into town on the back of a big silver eagle
    Strapped to his shoulders are the burden of staying on top
    And the lines in his face tell the story of an uphill flight
    You can tell how he feels day by day by the songs that he writes

    He's loved by millions, somehow he's their prisoner as well
    As he rides down the road in his ten wheel [Incomprehensible]
    Now he lives for the day that the eagle will carry him home
    'Cause the glamor is over nearly all of his seeds have been flown

    Letting go silver eagle, there must be a better way of life
    For this great American poet who's singing his songs about
    The everyday working man's life

    One night on the road just south of the Idaho line
    We were smoking some contracts and attempting to alter our minds
    Then just before daylight Hag pushed back his head and he said
    "I wouldn't put in too much emphasis on being a star
    Can we do a little bit of living instead"

    Letting go silver eagle, there must be a better way of life
    For this great American poet who's singing his songs about
    The everyday working man's life

    Letting go silver eagle, there must be a better way of life
    This great American poet who's singing his songs about
