"Piney River (I Am One)"

Words & Music by James Nihan and Dawn Zurlinden


I saw an eagle rising
Up from the Piney River
In a flash of white tail-feathers
And a splash of blue
It wasn't so surprising
When I felt a shiver
In that moment there together
We both flew

Chorus:
I am one
With the eagle and the sky
With the river rolling by
With Mother Earth and Father Sun
I am one

There's a river damned and dying
A forest turned asunder
A hole that we have driven
Through the deep blue sky
And I hear the Mother sighing
With the weight that she is under
After all that she has given
You and I

(Repeat Chorus)

I can close my eyes and fear it
A world of separation
Or be someone who faces
The world courageously
I am a kindred spirit
A brother to all nations
And all the human race is
Part of me

(Repeat Chorus)

With the eagle and the sky
With the river rolling by
With Mother Earth and Father Sun
With everything and every one
I am one
