Lyric "Midnight Flyer"

Oo, midnight flyer
Engineer, won't you let your whistle moan?
Oo, midnight flyer
I paid my dues and i feel like traveling on

[Verse 1]
A runaway team of horses ain't enough to make me stay
So throw your rope on another man
And pull him down your way
Make him into someone who can take the place of me
Make him every kind of fool you wanted me to be


[Verse 2]
Maybe I'll go to Santa Fe
Maybe San Antone
Any town is where I'm bound
Any way to get me gone
Don't think about me
Never let me cross your mind
Except when you hear that midnight lonesome whistle whine


I paid my dues and I feel like travelin' on



The Eagles were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner. With five number-one singles, six Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, and six number one albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Hotel California, were ranked among the 20 best-selling albums in the United States according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
