SING THE EAGLE HOME
(FOR LEONARD PELTIER)

  lyrics and music by Len Wallace

High above Lakota hills you hear the eagle's cry
The golden feathers catch the sun to dance on wings of fire.
The cry to his people is heard upon the wind -
Bring Leonard Peltier home once again.

Chorus:

Sing the eagle home again, sing him to the land,
Sing the ancient chorus every woman, child and man.
Sing the spirit of the Earth that rides to meet the sun
and sing sweet the victory to be won.

Two hundred dead at Wounded Knee a hundred years ago
Blood of the innocent lay thick upon the snow
A hundred years a tragedy of hatred, lies and fears
The cry of death held in a veil of tears.

Chorus

The shadowed men march once again, a new invader comes
Again the blood will flow, again the guns are drawn.
And now the walls of hatred are held against one man
And “justice” his held with blood stained hand.

Chorus

Too many years in prison cell torn from his native home
Too many years from family the eagle stands alone
Too many years a white man's court erased the white man's crime
Too many years to hope for freedom's time.

Chorus
>br> High above a prison cell you hear the eagle's cry
The golden feathers catch the sun to dance on wings of fire.
The cry to his people is heard upon the wind -
Bring Leonard Peltier home once again.
Leonard Peltier to freedom, Leonard Peltier home once again!
Leonard Peltierto freedom, Sing the Eagle home once again!
Sing the Eagle home once again.


SING THE EAGLE HOME is recorded on Len Wallace's CD MIDNIGHT SHIFT
