THE GIRLS BACK HOME

Written: Huntzingerís Apartments, Farmington NM, summer 1965

 

This is one of Kneesí first songs with lyrics and he obviously didnít spend too much time on them. The song was inspired by a surfiní tune called California Sun and the guitar lick is a ripoff of Del Shannonís organ solo on Runaway. A critic once described the ďlie there and moanĒ line as ďso political incorrect that it has to make you smile.Ē In 1965 it was the best most young stud wannabees could hope for.

 

Iím goin back where I belong

Where the summer days are twice as long

An the girls I love, love me too.

So keep away donít make me stay

You had your chance you had your way

An now itís time for me to go.

 

Iím goin back to the girls back home

They donít gimme no lip

They just lie there an moan.

 

The life back home is for a man

Who doesnít want a Mojo hand

You never gave me the love that I need.

So keep away donít make me stay

You had your chance you had your way

An now itís time for me to go.
