Lyrics

L.A. Man

Words and Music by Nina Jo Smith

© 2015 Redwood River Music                                   

 

Janis Joplin,

Hollywood Bowl,

Did it really happen

Did I really go?

 

Driving the canyon,

Beverly Glen

Blue skies and oak trees

Remembering

 

Essays and poetry,

Records and no tv,

Firesign Theater on the radio.

 

 

CHORUS

L.A. Boy,

L.A. Man,

Walk in the sunshine,

Sing in the band.

PCH to Monterrey

Roadtrip to San Fran

-cisco Bay

Swear on my life, I love L.A.

And I remember when.

 

L.A. Free Press

Century City

Police Attack Protesters

Vietnam War

 

Earthquake and mudslide,

Twelve-string and Tim Buckley,

Soldiers and train rides

Do you remember when?

 

It was a bad, bad time,

We had a good time too,

            Age of Aquarius,

            Me and you.

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

Riding the bikeway,

Wind in my hair,

Talking to someone

Who’s no longer there.

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

L.A. Boy, L.A. Man (repeat…and out)
