​Gliding Bird

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Gliding Bird (1968).

(Tom Slocum)

Gliding bird, gliding through the sky
I'm wondering why I can't be why
I can't be as free.

Gliding bird, gliding all day long, sing your secret song
Away from all these faces that I see, is where I want to be
My feet are so tired they walked too many miles
If I run so wild like heaven's child, I'll learn to fly someday

Gliding bird, riding in the sun, rainbow colors run
I hear the wind I hear its mournful call
Gliding bird, high above the sea, is it longing to be free
Your voice is silent but your wings tell all...
