Silver Wings

Album: A Portrait of Merle Haggard (1969)
  • Silver wings
    Shining in the sunlight
    Roaring engines
    Headed somewhere in flight
    They're taking you away
    And leaving me lonely
    Silver wings
    Slowly fading out of sight

    Don't leave me, I cried
    Don't take that airplane ride
    But you locked me out of your mind
    And left me standing here behind

    Silver wings
    Shining in the sunlight
    Roaring engines
    Headed somewhere in flight
    They're taking you away
    And leaving me lonely
    Silver wings
    Slowly fading out of sight

    Silver wings
    Shining in the sunlight
    Roaring engines
    Headed somewhere in flight
    They're taking you away
    And leaving me lonely
    Silver wings
    Slowly fading out of sight
    Slowly fading out of sight Writer/s: Merle Haggard
