|Doobie Brothers, Pat Simmons Band|
Description He grew up locally, and on lead vocals and guitar was one of the founding members of the Doobie Brothers. He wrote the song Neal's Fandango which features lyrics about the area: "Well, a travelin mans affliction makes it hard to settle down But Im stuck here in the flatlands while my heart is homeward bound Goin back, Im too tired to roam, loma prieta my mountain home On the hills above santa cruz, in the place where I spent my youth
Well it was neal cassady that started me to travelin All the stories that were told, I believed them every one And its a windin road Im on you understand And no time to worry bout tomorrow when youre followin the sun
Papa dont you worry now and mama dont you cry Sweet woman dont forsake me, Ill be comin by and by
Goin back, Im too tired to roam, loma prieta my mountain home On the hills above santa cruz, in the place where I spent my youth"
