"Massachusetts" as written by Maurice Ernest Gibb, Robin Hugh Gibb and Barry Alan Gibb....
Feel I'm goin' back to Massachusetts
Something's telling me I must go home
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
The day I left her standing on her own

Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco
Gotta do the things I wanna do
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
They brought me back to see my way with you

Talk about the life in Massachusetts
Speak about the people I have seen
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
And Massachusetts is one place I have seen

I will remember Massachusetts

    General CommentI think it references a major blackout that happened in the Northeastern United States and Maritime Canada in the late sixties. I'm a native of Massachusetts and remember hearing this song when I was young, I thought it was the state song (it should be), and again when I was an exchange student in Germany in the early 1990s (I was at an anniversary dinner at a restaurant outside of Neu Ulm with my host family, the hosts of the dinner hired a musician who played this song).
