Submit Corrections Cancel

Mama, when the moon is done
I walk on by the risin sun
Wishin all my dreams for every one

Its been a long time comin I mean love
Spread your wings and fly American dove

Fifteen and hes seen such bad around
The worse thing when they told him
God was money he broke down
He went wild
He is my (the) universal child

Its been a long time comin I mean love
Spread your wings and fly American dove

Mama - you ask Am I alright?
Well sure, but Johnnie he (aint) come home from war
Dont they honor life no more?

Its been a long time comin I mean love
Spread your wings and fly American dove.

Father, ooh I hear them
Theyre talkin in the streets thru the grapevine
Guess Ill go down to meet them
Father Ill never sell my soul
Not this soul of mine

Father its been a long time comin I mean love
Spread your wings and fly American dove

Pure as the risin sun
Tell them the young lords come
To bring liberty to every one

Spread your wings
Come on. Spread your wings and fly
