Dave Carroll has a song by the same title. But your poem is a bit more optimistic!

Editor's Note: I still remember the theme from Baretta, something like "The Eye Of The Sparrow"

thumbsup.gif As the sun goes down on a one horse town

And the home of a girl named Sarah Lee Brown

She’s workin’ on a scheme, she’s all of 17

And running from a life that was lonely and mean

Chorus:

To be free as a sparrow

Flying high to Elderado

She’s running past those city limit signs to

experience the other side

And be free as a sparrow.

She waits at the road with her thumb out in the cold

And a raven perched high looking at her below

There isn’t much time ‘fore a car pulls alongside

With a tremor of fear Sarah Lee gets in side

To be free as a sparrow

Flying high to Elderado

And the raven cries as she gets inside and then flies

away into the night

Cause she’s free as a sparrow

A body is found at the outskirts of town

And the newspapers say that it’s Sarah Lee Brown

Now the sun goes down on that one horse town

And the raven retires without making a sound

And she’s free as a sparrow

Flying high in Elderado

She made it past those city limit signs and she’s

laughing on the other side

She’s as free as a sparrow

Dave Carroll song lyrics???

Editor's Note: I enjoyed looking this set of lyrics up... Although I didn't hear the clip, the words kind of stand alone...

Don't go to bed with no price on your head

Don't do it

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time

Keep your eye on the sparrow

When the going gets narrow

Don't roll the dice if you can't pay the price

Don't do it

Don't run your feet down a dead-end street

Keep your eye on the sparrow

When the going gets narrow

Don't do me dirt or you're gonna get hurt

Don't do it

Don't run away till you hear what I say

Keep your eye on the sparrow

When the going gets narrow

Ain't gonna fight with no thief in the night Won't do it

I'm gonna go where the cold wind don't blow

Keep your eye on the sparrow

When the going gets narrow

Editor's Note: This is one of those trivial memories that just pops into one's head. I remember the show, and enjoyed it very much...

That's the one. Like I said- Your poem: more optimistic. :)

Editor's Note: Thanks for the directions. I actually like the one you mentioned but, I try to stay positive when I can...

We all get enough of those "negative" waves from the TV and daily news of tragedies, and heartbreak...
