IN ’69 SHE BLEW MY MIND

TOOK ME PLACES I’D NEVER BEEN

WE TOOK A FAST CAR DOWN THE PASSING LANE

THE NIGHT WAS MISTY, FOG WAS ROLLIN’ IN

‘CROSS THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE, SAN FRANCISCO SIDE

RIDIN’ ON THE WIND, HEADIN’ INTO THE NIGHT

SHE TOOK MY HAND, LAID ME ON THE SAND

AND THEN SHE LOVED ME ‘TIL THE MORNING LIGHT

WE TOOK A FAST CAR DOWN THE PASSING LANE

ON AN OPEN ROAD THROUGH A DRIVIN’ RAIN

IN A FAST CAR YOU CAN LOSE YOUR MIND

OR JUST RIDE ON, LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND

WELL WE DROVE THAT CAR TO THE SUMMER’S END 

WE WOULD RIDE ALL NIGHT JUST TO FIND THE SUN

I CAN SEE HER NOW LYIN’ ON THE SHORE

I DIDN’T KNOW IT THEN BUT SHE WAS THE ONE

IT’S BEEN 35 YEARS SINCE I SAW HER FACE

BUT HER VISION HAUNTS ME EVERY NIGHT

GOTTA FIND MY WAY BACK TO ‘ FRISCO BAY

TO THAT GIRL I LEFT IN 1969

WE TOOK A FAST CAR DOWN THE PASSING LANE

ON AN OPEN ROAD THROUGH A DRIVIN’ RAIN

IN A FAST CAR YOU CAN LOSE YOUR MIND

OR JUST RIDE ON, LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND

WE TOOK A FAST CAR DOWN THE PASSING LANE

ON AN OPEN ROAD THROUGH A DRIVIN’ RAIN

IN A FAST CAR YOU CAN LOSE YOUR MIND

OR JUST RIDE ON, LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND
