"Please Come To Boston" as written by and David Loggins....
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
By a café 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 now won't cha settle down?"
"Boston ain't your kinda 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
We'll move up into the mountains so far that we can't be found
And throw "I love you" echoes down the canyon
And then lie awake at night till 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 cha settle down?"
"Denver ain't your kinda town"
"There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me"
"'Cause I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"

Now this drifter's world goes 'round and 'round
And I doubt that it's ever gonna stop
But of all the dreams I've lost or found
And all that I ain't got
I still need to lean to
Somebody I can sing to

Please come to LA to live forever
California life alone is just too hard to build
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 LA
She just said "No, boy, won't you come home to me?"

And she said, "Hey ramblin' boy why don't cha settle down?"
"LA can't be your kinda town"
"There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me"
"No, no, I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"

"I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"

    General CommentDave Loggins is the man from Tennessee. He moves too much and his girl wants him to settle down with her in a quiet life.

    General CommentI love these poetic lyrics in the second stanza:

    We'll move up into the mountains
    So far that we can't be found
    And throw I love you echos
    Down the canyons
    And then lie awake at night
    Until they come back around

    General CommentI love Denver, I lived there on and of for 5 years, and would live there again if I had the chance. This song reminds me of a girl I loved there, mountains, clear cold mornings, camp fire coffee. and traveling.

    General CommentWho's the NUMBNUTS injecting Elvis into this song? I've seen it splattered on the Google discussion boards too. "The Elvis Theory." Really??? Give me a break you NITWIT. Why would she say,"Boy, you come home to me," and then profess that she's the number one fan of Elvis? Use the skull God gave you. Go to Burger King for your Elvis fantasy, I'm sure he's waiting for you.
