Amelia Earhart
Song For Teaching American History - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley


This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's The American Way


Lyrics:

CHORUS:
Tall, boyish, freckle-faced Amelia
Off into the skies...
Tall, slim, boyish, freckle-faced Amelia
Decisions always wise

Intrepid, cool-headed, fair-minded even when her life was in jeopardy
United a nation
On aviation
Her death, a mystery...

When Charles Linburgh piloted the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean...
Amelia Earhart desired to be the woman who would change the focus.
A solo flight from coast to coast kicked off her great career
Then on to cross the Atlantic Ocean setting records for time and distance...
A transPacific flight... and then a transAmerica she’d make....
Hawaii to California....then D.C. was all her energies then could take...
" I have a feeling there’s but one good flight left in my system now..

Bridge: I hope this trip is IT, as when it ends, I’ll give up flying..." That was her vow.....

CHORUS:
Tall, boyish, freckle-faced Amelia
Off into the skies...
Tall, slim, boyish, freckle-faced Amelia
Decisions always wise
Intrepid, cool-headed, fair-minded even when her life was in jeopardy
United a nation
On aviation
Her death, a mystery...

The tragic flight began with Fred Noonan, her navigator friend
On June 1, 1937 and here’s where our story ends....
She left a message for all to see..."Please know, I know the hazards..
I want to do it ‘cause I want to do it..." ( She would be her own master..)
"Women must try to do things as men have tried, but when they fail
Their failure must be but a challenge to others"....And this attitude we all hail......
So we’ll all emulate Amelia Earhart, planning carefully our schemes...
Bridge: We’ll take precautions but we’ll persevere...and follow all our worthy dreams....

CHORUS:
Tall, boyish, freckle-faced Amelia
Off into the skies...
Tall, slim, boyish, freckle-faced Amelia
Decisions always wise
Intrepid, cool-headed, fair-minded even when her life was in jeopardy
United a nation
On aviation
Her death, a mystery...
