Silver Wings
Written by: Merle Haggard
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Take the Weather With You (2006)

Lyrics:
Silver wings shining in the sunlight,
roaring engines headed somewhere in flight.
They're taking you away, leaving me lonely,
silver wings slowly fading out of sight.

Don't leave me I cry, don't take no 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, leaving me lonely,
silver wings slowly fading out of sight.

Musical bridge featuring guitars, sax

Silver wings shining in the sunlight,
roaring engines headed somewhere in flight,
they're taking you away leaving me lonley.
Silver wings slowly fading out of sight.
Slowly fading out of sight.
They're slowly fading out of sight.
Slowly fading out of sight…
(Aaaaaaaayyeeeeeeee!)
