The Rock and Roll Revival Continued


Back in November, I posted my thoughts about rock and roll songs that could be used in an order of worship in the posting “Rock and Roll Revival”.

I would like to add to that list “Fly Like An Eagle” by the Steve Miller band. The lyrics are
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till Im free
Oh, lord, through the revolution

Feed the babies
Who dont have enough to eat
Shoe the children
With no shoes on their feet
House the people
Livin in the street
Oh, oh, theres a solution

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till Im free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till Im free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin
Into the future

  1. Love this post. I have been reading all your posts of your sermons. I am enjoying them.

    Have not sent a note for a long time.

    CONGATS on the grandchild.

    Where has the time gone since GOOD OLD WESLEY DAYS!!!

  2. Helen,
    Thanks for the comment and the contribution. It is one of my favorite songs.

    We have indeed come a long way since the days at the Wesley house but then we wouldn’t have gotten this far without the Wesley house.

  3. To the person from France who sent in a comment. Since neither my wife or I can read French, we are not sure what you said. Would you please provide a translation?

    Thank you
