A song from my high school days. The only cover in this set. I liked Mark Almond and had the pleasure of meeting Johnny Almond in San Diego and jammed with him a few times.

Lyrics

Well, I slept last night in the open
Down by a redwood tree
Yes, I slept last night in the open
Just to let, just to let, just to let my soul free
I don’t want to know, I don’t want to go,
I don’t want to go back into the city.
It’s just a long long long lonely taxi ride
Going nowhere.
Well, I slept last night in the open
(It gets so hot in the city)
Down by a redwood tree
(It gets so hot in the city)
Yes, I slept last night in the open
Just to let, just to let, just to let my soul free.
I don’t want to know, I don’t want to go,
I don’t want to go back into the city.
It’s just a long long long lonely taxi ride
Going nowhere.
