Dragon's Eye

(Gene Clark, Pat Robinson)

Saint Christopher
Patron saint of the traveler
Got my baby on my shoulder
As I stand on the river side

My daughter
And my son are hungry
We ain't got no money
But we got a lot of pride

Father Domingos
He said "you'll sing with the angels on the river bank ..."
Thank the Lord ... that you can still afford
To go up to the land of the free

Mommy and Graces
Took all of our savings
And gave it to the man on that side

To get us under the fence
And then we can make it
In the land of the dragon's eye
In the land where the dragons fly

Give us
Mother Mary
The strength just to carry on

Go to angels
Fight in the city of the lost angels tonight

Father Rodriquez
Said "God won't you save us ...
We're going over there tonight ..."

Into the land of the free
Where there's lots of money
And we can lay down our pride

Oriental finger painters
Were just born out of their own pride
They made more money
When a man from New York
Laid down a dollar bill on their lives

And he looked into the dragon's eye

Father Domingos
Said "... I give you the blessings ...
Of Saint Christopher in here tonight ..."
The star is shining
As we cross over the river
Into the land of all of the free
And people working through it

Has never been a solution
And we haven't got the way tonight

Bring back the treasure
Of Montezuma
Then we'll have our angel's eyes
Angel's eyes

The dragon's eye
Into the dragon's eye
Nothing to fear
In the dragon's eye
