I am the eagle, I live in high country,
in rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky.
I am the hawk and theres blood on my feathers,
but time is still turning, they soon will be dry.

share in the freedom I feel when I fly.
Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops.
Sail oer the canyons and up to the stars.
Reach for the heavens and hope for the future
and all that we can be and not we are.

6/8 feel stress on the 1st and 4th half beats of the bar. I've suggested 2 strumming
The 1st is harder because you have to create the rhythm by volume on the upstroke at
4th half beat - it's easy to drift back into a 3/4 count. The 2nd strum is a little
It creates the emphasis by missing out the downstroke on the 3rd beat. If you're not
start with this strum and add the downstroke in as you improve.
