"Wounded Bird" as written by Eddie Chacon, Charles C. Pettigrew and J. Freed....
I've watched you go through changes
That no man should face alone
Take to heel or tame the horse
The choice is still your own
But arm yourself against the pain
A wounded bird can give
And in the end remember
It's with you you have to live
And in the end remember
It's with you you have to live
Stand your ground I think you've got
The guts it takes to win
But you must learn to turn the keys
Before she'll let you in
And understand the problems of the girl you want
So near or you'll wear the coat of questions `til the
Answer hat is here
You'll wear the coat of questions `til the
Answer hat is here
Serenade your angel with a love song from your eyes
Grow a little taller even though your age defies
Feel a little smaller
And in stature you will rise
A hobo or a poet must kill dragons for a bride;
And humble pie is always hard to swallow
With your pride

    General CommentI think, though I don't know, that this song is about loving a woman who has problems, and realizing that simply loving her isn't going to make it okay, that it's going to take acceptance and understanding to make things work.

    Or maybe I'm delirious from the heat. Could be either.

    General CommentIt's all in how you interpret it I suppose. To me it seems to be about finding yourself spiritually. I think of "she" the woman he sings about to be life and/or success. No matter who you are or what you have been through we all encounter challenges and obstacles. I'd like to believe that he is saying to the listener that we all have something to give in this world and no matter what your circumstances are you should never give up on accomplishing that.
