(E)(F#) G
   (G)(A)(Bb) Bm                                     C                 G
                        If you go down round the bend in the river
                        You're gonna find a few changes been goin' down there
                        Cause the people who live round the bend in the river
                        Have forgotten their dreams, and they cut off their hair

                                                           D                               C                G
                                        And take a last flyin' look at the last lonely eagle
                                                D                C                   G
                                        He's soaring the length of the land
                                        Shed a tear for the fate of the last lonely eagle
                                        For you know that he never will land

                        If you go down to where the lights touch the night time
                        Back far enough so you don't feel the fear
                        Remember the boy that you left on the mountain
                        He's sitting alone with the stars in his tears

                                        And take a last flyin' look at the last lonely eagle
                                        He's soaring the length of the land
                                        Shed a tear for the fate of the last lonely eagle
                                        For you know that he never will land

                        If you go down to the gas powered flatland
                        Where most of the people just think that they're free
                        Remember the time that we shared on the mountain
                        Come back to the love that you had here with me

                                        And take a last flyin' look at the last lonely eagle
                                        He's soaring the length of the land
                                        Shed a tear for the fate of the last lonely eagle
                                        For you know that he never will land
                                                     D                   C              G
                                        For you know that he never will land...
