That Warning Eagle Blues

That warning eagle keeps circling around,

Listening to the news, wars-coming sound.

Big bombs dropping, keep on coming down,

Looks like we all may be heaven bound.


Refrain:

I got that warning eagle, downhearted kinda blues,

We all do gonna have a lot to lose.

When those doggone bullets start flying, people dying,

You'd better pay more attention to the news.


When you got Crazy people making threats,

Just cash in yo money, don't hedge any bets.

Can't make any sense outta what they say,

Make amends for past sins, get down, pray.


Refrain:

I got that warning eagle, downhearted kinda blues,

We all do gonna have a lot to lose.

When those doggone bullets start flying, people dying,

You'd better pay more attention to the news.


They're sending big ships and submarines,

Brings back memories, what war all means.

You better hold on tight to what you've got,

Till then you never know what means a lot.


Refrain:

I got that warning eagle, downhearted kinda blues,

We all do gonna have a lot to lose.

When those doggone bullets start flying, people dying,

You'd better pay more attention to the news.


Wars of the past, just hard to tell who won,

We've lost so much, many a mother's son.

Better think hard about it, before we do act,

It won't be long till there's no turning back.


Refrain:

I got that warning eagle, downhearted kinda blues,

We all do gonna have a lot to lose.

When those doggone bullets start flying, people dying,

You'd better pay more attention to the news.


If a war comes stand up, don't lay down,

Be strong and fight, remove that frown.

Just grit your teeth, and defend your town,

Don't worry, for your courage you've found.


Refrain:

We've got to shake that Warning eagle blues,

Be strong, stand up, for we will not lose.

We won't back down, and we will not fail,

We're alright, the good, we shall prevail.

Won't back down, we will not fail.

Got to shake that warning eagle blues

Our great eagle warns us of danger and defends us. A true American symbol of strength.

whonunuwho (author) from United States on April 26, 2017:

The eagle(Bald Eagle) is our national bird and a beautiful and majestic creature. This bird represents our country and the people who have perished defending it, as well our flag. It was chosen by our founding fathers and was the best choice by far. It was said that Franklin wanted the Turkey as our bird, but he was overruled.

Thank you for your nice compliment and have a blessed evening, my friend. whonu

That's a lovely poem. I love eagles. They are such graceful birds of prey.
