Looking Back To
Laurel Canyon

  Laurel Canyon

I love to greet the day
Love my hideaway in
Laurel Canyon
I don’t keep track of time
Living on a dime in
Laurel Canyon

Standing here trying to get a ride
I got my baby by my side
Some say that we're the pride of
Laurel Canyon

Shades of Camelot
Giving all I’ve got to
Laurel Canyon
John Paul Jones and Liz
Try to keep it hid in
Laurel Canyon

Uphill, downhill take your pick
Light another candlestick
I don’t think I could ever kick
Laurel Canyon

Looking out my door
I can see that store in
Laurel Canyon
Staying just above
With the one I love in
Laurel Canyon

Our good friend Felicity
Well she married old man Socrates
Standing under ‘neath the trees of
Laurel Canyon (strange companion)

I’ve got a dog named Gwinn
Wandering somewhere in
Laurel Canyon
She goes out to play

Seems to know her way through
Laurel Canyon
