The sun shines down on a South Dakota mornin'
And I can see their faces in my eyes
I wish they were behind me, my enemy can find me
If only to remind me that I'm really not alone
All the South Dakota mornings I have known
The eagle flies on a South Dakota mornin'
And I don't see my eagle anymore
Now stranger I must kill you, you must survive but will you?
I may just beat you down but will it even up the score?
I think I saw the eagle just once more
The rain comes down on a South Dakota morning
And I can't see the sadness in my town
So let it be my pillow for underneath your willow
Wanna go back to you though you're nothin' but a town
On the South Dakota grass I lay me down
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
