Dave Loggins, “Please Come to Boston”

Please come to Boston for the springtime
I’m stayin’ here with some friends
And they’ve got lots of room
You can sell your paintings on the sidewalk
And by a cafe where I hope to be workin’ soon

Please come to Boston
She said, “No, would you come home to me”
And she said, “Hey ramblin’ boy why don’t you settle down?
Boston ain’t your kind of town
There ain’t no gold, and there ain’t nobody like me
I’m the number one fan of the man from Tennessee”

Please come to Denver with the snowfall
Move up into the mountains so far that we can’t be found
And throw I love you echoes down the canyons
And then lie awake at night ’til they come back around

Please come to Denver
She said, “No, boy would you come home to me”
And she said, “Hey ramblin’ boy why don’t you settle down?
Denver ain’t your kind of town
There ain’t no gold and there ain’t nobody like me
I’m the number one fan of the man from Tennessee”

Now this drifter’s world goes round and round
And I doubt if it’s ever gonna stop
And of all the dreams I’ve lost and found
And all that I ain’t got
I need someone to cling to
Somebody I can sing to

Please come to L.A. to live forever
A California life alone is just too hard to fill
I live in a house that looks out over the ocean
And there’s some stars that fell from the sky
Livin’ up on the hill

Please come to L.A.
She said, “Boy you come home to me”
She said, “Hey ramblin’ boy why don’t you settle down?
L.A. can’t be your kind of town
There ain’t no gold and there ain’t nobody like me
Oh no, I’m the number one fan of the man from Tennessee
I’m the number one fan of the man from Tennessee”

This song was at the top of the charts in 1974, but I didn’t think I remembered it until I read the lyrics, and yes, I do remember this awesome tune now. At the time I simply didn’t know what it was called or who sang it. I have been listening to this great song on the radio off and on for 45  years now (it is still played, believe it or not), but I never knew what it was called or who did it.

I had actually never even heard of Dave Loggins until today. I was confusing him with Kenny Loggins of Loggins and Messina, another huge band in the 1970’s which recorded similar music. This is the only song he wrote that I have ever heard of. It’s also been covered by many others, but I am not familiar with any of those covers either.

This is also considered to be country music, but it is also something called soft rock that was very big back then. A lot of that soft rock was actually quite good and of course, women and girls always loved that music, so that was another reason to listen to it, if you know what I mean. Females love it when you love the music that they love, so even if you hate their music, it helps to at least fake it and pretend you love it because it’s such a great seduction technique.

Unfortunately I’m too honest to do that even though I’m a degenerate. Fortunately I do like a lot of the softer music that females like to listen to. Music like laughter loosens females up and gets them in romantic mood and they are always ecstatic if you like that softer music they like. Also music makes women horny, especially softer, romantic type music.

One of the great all-time tearjerkers. How could anyone not like this song? It’s  like not like butterflies or sunny days. I don’t get it.

One thought on “Dave Loggins, “Please Come to Boston””

  1. Some would mock these as “wimpy songs”. But what’s really wimpy, songs with heart like this one (and ones from Bread etc.) or stuff with no heart, no soul, no musical complexity (not even a punk rock thing to compensate)?

    I haven’t heard anything to even come close to stuff like this in the past 20 years!
