Lyrics

Working coast to coast 
Sleeping on a train 
Caught between 
The settled life
And on the road again 
People often ask me
Where it is I’m from
Find it hard to tell them
So I say it in a song

Eagle in the mountains 
Floating on a breeze
Shark out in the ocean
He’s happy in the deep
Me I’ve got my own place 
It’s good enough for me
You could find me anywhere 
Between the mountains 
And the sea

Been a lot of places
Done a lot of things
Some of them were so good 
Yeah I’d do those things again 
The town that I was born in
It knows me all too well
I hope they’ll
Take me back there
When the keeper rings the bell 

Eagle in the mountains 
Floating on a breeze
Shark out in the ocean
He’s happy in the deep
Me I’ve got my own place
It’s good enough for me
You could find me anywhere 
Between the mountains
And the sea

Sometimes I stop and wonder 
How it came to this
This life of lonely travelling 
So far from civil bliss
There’s been people
On the journey
Some I love so deep 
Others took advantage 
Oh and some had no idea

Oh but that eagle
In the mountains
Floating on a breeze
Shark out in the ocean
He’s happy in the deep
Me I’ve got my own place 
It’s good enough for me
You could find me anywhere 
Between the mountains 
And the sea

Eagle in the mountains 
Rainbow in the sky 
Shark out in the ocean 
He’s following the tide 
Spirit of this country
I hear it speak to me 
When the wind is calling 
Between the mountains 
And the sea
When the wind is blowing 
Between the mountains 
And the sea
