John DenverFlight

This song was first released on the it's about time album. it is the only album it has been released on. Oh, i have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the sky on laughter silvered wings Sunward i've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things I've wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence Hovering there i've chased the shouting winds aloft And flung my eager craft through footless halls of air The higher we fly, the farther we go The closer we are to each other The darker the night, the brighter the star In peace go my sisters and brothers Up, up, the long delirious burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark nor even eagle flew And while with silent lifting mind i trod The high untresspassed sanctity of space Put out my hand and touched the face of god The higher we fly, the farther we go The closer we are to each other The darker the night, the brighter the star In peace go my sisters and brothers Words by gillespie magee jr., john denver and joe henry Music by lee holdridge Adopted from the poem by john gillespie magee jr.
