Hawks And Eagles Lyrics And Chords The McCalmans. The guitar work is by Marc Fahrbach. (I. Walker/MCPS & PRS) For The McCalmans’ version from their album ‘Flames On The Water’ use capo on 2nd fret.

As (G)I was walking down the road,

I (D)met my brother with a (D7)heavy (G)load

I said to him what have you seen,

He (D)said to me ‘I (D7)have a (G)dream’.

In (D)1960, I thought I'd died

Iin Sharpeville's bloody (D7)town,

But (D)I got up I walked on tall

Nobody's goin' to put me (D7)down.

 

Chorus

(G)Hawks and eagles fly like doves

(D)Hawks and eagles (D7)fly like (G)doves

(G)Hawks and eagles fly like doves

(D)Hawks and eagles (D7)fly like (G)doves

 

As (G)I walked out along the way

I (D)saw my sister (D7)bend and (G)pray,

I said to her why do you kneel,

She (D)says ‘You don't know (D7)how I (G)feel’.

I (D)had a little boy and a little girl,

I loved to watch them (D7)grow.

But (D)they were butchered on the streets

In the blood of Sowe(D7)tto.

 

Chorus

 

It's (G)'85 and I'm walking still,

A(D)cross Uiten(D7)haage (G)Hill,

Saw a crowd set off at the dawn of day,

The (D)soldiers said don't (D7)come this (G)way.

(D)Then somebody threw a stone

As they walked up the (D7)track

A (D)boy on a bike was the first to fall

With a bullet in his (D7)back.

 

Chorus

 

It's been a (G)long, long hard road,

Three (D)hundred years since the (D7)settlers (G)strode

Into that Southern land,

(D)Now they rule with an (D7)iron (G)hand.

Low (D)pay, no vote and passbook laws,

Don't talk back they (D7)say.

But the (D)hawks and the eagles will fly like doves,

When the people rise one (D7)day.

 

Chorus twice
