Occasional Eagle
By John Anderson

This is close but I don't think it's perfect yet


D                        G       Em
High o'er the coast of Alaska he flies
A               F#          Bm         F#m 
Wide 'cross the prairies he covers the skies
  G          A           D         G         A           D 
A picture of courage and beauty, a symbol of freedom and right 
G          A                D
Riding the winds through the mountains
G         G/F#         Em       A        D
Guided by nature, an occasional eagle in flight

When the shore ice is melting in Kodiak Bay
Knowing that Spring is well on its way
He calls to his mate of a lifetime, to a yearly nest in the thorn 
Planting the egg in the branches
With God's assistance, an occasional is born

Chorus 
       A   G                  D 
And he fli-i-es, covering the land 
A            F#             Bm      F#m        G    Em                
Stirring the hearts through all generations of man 
  G          A           D         G         A           D
A picture of courage and beauty, a symbol of freedom and right 
G          A                D
Riding the wind through the mountains 
G         G/F#          Em      A        D
Guided by nature, an occasional eagle in flight 

Instrumental

When I was younger and without a care
For granted I thought he would always be there 
But now I only hear stories that the great bird of truth is alive 
With a fist in my pocket I'm prayin' 
An eternal prayer that the great bird of truth will survive 

Chorus
And he fli-i-es, covering the land 
Stirring the hearts through all generations of man 
Poets tell of his bearing, truth on a feathery wind.
Painters paint from inspiration.
A beautiful picture that only a memory can bring

Excellent job on the chords sounds right to me,

The words for the last Chorus are:

Poets tell of his barriers, Truth on a feathery wind.
Painters paint from inspiration.
A beautiful picture that only a memory can bring.
