Eagles And Horses (Im Flying Again) Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Country Roads-Very Best Of John (1998)

This song appears on five albums, and was first released on The Flower That Shattered the Stone album. It has also appeared on the Stonehaven Sunrise, A Portrait and The John Denver Collection - Take Me Home, Country Roads albums. A live version also appears on The Wildlife Concert album.


Horses are creatures who worship the earth
As they gallop on feet of ivory
Constrained by the wonder of dying and birth
The horses still run, they are free

My body is merely the shell of my soul
But the flesh must be given its due
Like a pony that carries its rider back home
Like an old friend thats tried and been true

I had a vision of eagles and horses
High on a ridge in a race with the wind
Going higher and higher and faster and faster
On eagles and horses Im flying again

Eagles inhabit the heavenly heights
They know neither limit nor bound
Theyre the guardian angels of darkness and light
They see all and hear every sound

My spirit will never be broken or caught
For the soul is a free-flowing thing
Like an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thought
To rise up on glorious wings

I had a vision of eagles and horses
High on a ridge in a race with the wind
Going higher and higher and faster and faster
On eagles and horses Im flying again

My body is merely the shell of my soul
But the flesh must be given its due
Like a pony that carries its master back home
Like an old thats tried and been true

My spirit will never be broken or caught
For the soul is a free-flowing thing
Like an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thought
To rise up on glorious wings

I had a vision of eagles and horses
High on a ridge in a race with the wind
Going higher and higher and faster and faster
On eagles and horses Im flying again

Words and music by John Denver and Joe Henry

I have 5 children, the youngest is now 7 years old. Ever since he first heard this song, he fell in love with it. Like any kid he likes alot of the "pop" stuff of today, plus he has the influence of the 4 older kids. But they have all heard John Denver throughout their lives. I have over 80 albums/CDs of John's.

I own a roller skating rink, and I play this kind of music mixed in with the "pop" stuff. My 7-year old recognizes this song immediately in the first couple of notes. As soon as this song starts, my son will drop whatever he is doing to go skate to it.

Go to youtube, type in John Denver Spirit-Eagles And Horses. It will be a cartoon video. Someone took video footage from the movie and put it together to match up with the lyrics of this song. Your kids will like it. And you will, too.
