On The Wings Of An Eagle

	  		Well  the names Trevor Dunen of Melbourne Australia, my first attempt at a guitar Tab.  
I've been playing 15 years. I love Russell Morris an Aussie Legend and Icon. This song in  
exquisite and Russell does it best. To be played on a lead guitar on very low volume in the  
background with tone turned full up and the bridge pick-up turned to middle. Turn your amp  
Bass to Mid. Mid to High. and High to mid. to be sung slowly  in a harrowing lilting sad  
flowing cry. You can get me on [email protected]

WORDS 
Well I'm looking up at an overcast sky in the morning  
I can't hear the warning as it calls to you 
As the birds migrate and the wind is raised 
I'll see the eagle soaring 
Although I'm just a pawn in nature's game like you 
On the winds of an eagle I find myself lifted through the skies 
Lifted up above the world to sing 
On the winds of an eagle I find myself lifted through the skies 
Lifted up above the world to sing 
Can you see me? Can you see me? 
As the days roll on and the nights get long 
The changing of the seasons 
And the falling autumn leaves they bring me down 
They bring me down, they bring me down 
Do you lose your way in the middle of the day 
Do you see your brother crawling? 
And all the while he's calling out for help from you? 
On the winds of an eagle I find myself lifted through the skies 
Lifted up above the world to sing 
 
     Am                                              C                             G                     D
