Parton, Dolly - Eagle When She Flies Lyrics




She's been there, God knows, she's been there
She has seen and done it all
She's a woman, she knows how to
Dish it out or take it all
Her heart's as soft as feathers
Still she weathers stormy skies
And she's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies

A kaleidoscope of colors
You can toss her around and round
You can keep her in your vision
But you'll never keep her down
She's a lover, she's a mother
She's a friend and she's a wife
And she's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies

Gentle as the sweet magnolia
Strong as steel, her faith and pride
She's an everlasting shoulder
She's the leaning post of life
She hurts deep and when she weeps
She's just as fragile as a child
And she's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies

She's a sparrow when she's broken
But she's an eagle when she flies
Oh, bless her, Lord
She's an eagle when she flies

  1. Cyndi Cannon

    One of my very favorites by her

  2. Joshlynn Hartung

    I'm mother is a strong women and she is proud of her kids and she has always been there for me and my siblings

  3. Kimberly Ritchie

    This song is for the real country girls this song describes me just fine but the married part.

  4. Massimo Uguzzoni

    Peccato che si possa mettere un solo " I like ", ma un "I love" basterà.

  5. A Jay KUSTOMER

    Dolly, there is not a single doubt in my mind that the original Eve, from God's garden, is grateful to you for creating, and so beautifully so, this 'forever song' for Womankind. A beautiful song, rendered by a beautiful woman. Thank you.

  6. Jody Kidd

    Dolly is a true country music singer and has a beauty about her not matter what it is that she is doing. Singing or movie acting or just being her self in the public eye. I think she would be a great wife,mom or care giver or friend or lover. She sure is a great singer. God sent one of his greatest Angel's to be among us to bring great joy.

  7. John Dobbins

    I miss my momma 😭😭😭

    She will always be DOLLY. Sad I haven’t named any of my daughters after her. Sometimes I feel I love her only to realise it’s her voice I admire and cherish. Thank God for given us a human being with a gorgeous and wonderful voice. May she live long to put joy in our hearts. God bless you Dolly.

  62. Jessi Brunson

    My daughter told me this song reminded her of me, but it reminds me of my precious Mama. She passed in 2012, and nothing has been the same. She had a very hard life, but she was the strongest person I know. She was a small, humble, Christian Lady, and when she walked into a room, the whole room would light up. Her voice was low & soothing, eyes would sparkle, and...a beautiful smile. No one understood me like Mama. She always made me feel like everything was going to be ok. The last time I ever talked to Mama was over the phone, and I ask her to sing "Kiss An Angel Good Morning". She had a beautiful voice. She lived 10 hours away, and was making sure she got me on the phone. My brother said she was acting kind of desperate to talk to me. This was on Jan.1st....on the afternoon of Jan. 3rd, I understood why. She knew she was going to die. I just Thank God that I was able to hear her precious voice...one more time. At the end of the call, she would say, "I love you, Jessi.", then she would say " Make sure you eat enough.". Then went on about 5 more times with her telling me things, and that she loved me. I should have known. I just remember not wanting to let her go, either. On January 3rd, 2012...I lost the most precious Mama in the world. I love & miss you Mama ❤ I'll be with you one day, Mama ❤ June 14, 2019

  63. Nicole Rmeiti

    I wish i've had a mum who loves me. ..

  67. A Jay KUSTOMER

    Dolly, there are few arenas in life that something about you does not excell in. Thank you for all you have sacrificed, and for every arena of excellence. Will always be thinking of you with love from the best of the human heart.
    Today, June 1, 2019, & always.
