    Lyrics »

Back when Wyoming lay like a sea
Uncut by ribbons of steel
Twas scarcely a sound in the wide open space
Long before the clack of the wheel
Painting a circle, his eye to the ground
Sailing around in the sky
The king of the mountain was watching his own
The eagle was reigning on high

Stealing from safety, the coyote howls
"Oh eagle, you're not number one
Another has always been higher than you
It is your brother the sun"
"I will fly higher", the eagle replied
"It will be proven I vow
No one can challenge my right to the sky"
Banking he climbed through the clouds

Always remember the eagle
Let his legend remain
Long after the bones of the king of the mountain
Turn to dust on the Wyoming plain

Waiting high over the wind river range
Watching the eagle draw near
Seeing his courage, yet knowing his fate
Sadly the sun shed a tear
"Go back brave flyer, you're king of your land
You'll die if you come any higher"
The eagle screamed "Never" and climbed toward the sun
And fell with his feathers on fire

Here in this country there's an ocean of change
With the past and the future at stake
From the top man to the bottom
There's one thing we should do
With every decision we make
