E(8)  E(6)  E(4)  E(2)  E (x2) (see notes at the end of this tab)


I am the eagle, I live in high country,
in rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky.
I am the hawk and there’s blood on my feathers,
but time is still turning, they soon will be dry.
And all those who see me, and all who believe in me,
                                    F    E    A
share in the freedom I feel when I fly.

       D            D/C            G/B          A
Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops.
 D            Bm          G           A
Sail o’er the canyons and up to the stars.
  D           D/C         G/B           D
Reach for the heavens and hope for the future
    D/C         G/B        Em      A
and all that we can be and not we are.

E(8)  E(6)  E(4)  E(2)  E (as per the intro)

[Note 1]

The chords in the intro are the E shape played at various positions on the fretboard as
 I have named them E plus a number – the number marks the fret that your first finger is on.

      E(8) E(6) E(4) E(2)  E
1 E  --0----0----0----0----0--|
2 B  --0----0----0----0----0--|
3 G  --8----6----4----2----1--|
4 D  --9----7----5----3----2--|
5 A  --9----7----5----3----2--|
6 E  --0----0----0----0----0--|

[Note 2]

The song is 3/4 time but in the second half of the intro the arrangement has a 6/8 feel.
For a solo guitar you can get the feel of these two rhythms like this:

Standard 3/4 time – one stress on the first beat of each bar.

     <             <
     D   D U D U   D U D U D U

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.

     <     <       <     <
     D U D U D U   D U D U D U
  or D U D U   U   D U D U   U
