Sister Golden Hair

Music really is such a big part of my life. Little things, like a song that sparks a memory, or brings back a very specific emotion.

And the funny thing about my taste in music is that I don't just like one type of music. I know that I do Retro Friday posts most Fridays, but really, I like almost all kinds of music.

My parents' music taste have made a distinct impression on some of the music that I listen to. I enjoy a lot of the music that they listened to when I was a kid, because it brings back such great memories of a carefree, happy time.

Twice this week I have stumbled across songs by the band America ... and it just brings back such a warm and happy feeling for me. Happy memories of my childhood, and happy memories of time spent in California.

Although Ventura Highway is my all-time favorite America song, this week the song Sister Golden Hair is really stuck in my head. So I thought I'd share it with you tonight. Here are the lyrics ... and the song for your listening pleasure!

Well I tried to make it Sunday
but I got so damned depressed
That I set my sights on Monday
and I got myself undressed
I ain't ready for the altar
but I do agree there's times
when a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well I keep on thinkin' 'bout you
Sister golden hair surprise
And I just can't live without you
Can't you see it in my eyes?
I've been one poor correspondent
I've been too too hard to find
but it doesn't mean
you ain't been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle
Will you meet me in the air
will you love me just a little
just enough to show you care

Well I tried to fake it
I don't mind sayin'
I just can't make it

Cheers, and stay safe in the storms tonight!
