Subject: number 1 fan of the man from Tennessee
From: GUEST,trdunn49@nni.com
Date: 21 Aug 00 - 08:06 AM

Looking to identify a folk/country ballad type song with the line, "number one fan of the man from Tennessee", in the chorus. What I'm really looking for is chords and lyrics, but even just the song title and/or artist would be much appreciated. Thank you, Tom Dunn trdunn49@nni.com

PLEASE COME TO BOSTON Written by Kenny Loggins He sang it and so did Canadian singer Anne Murray in the mid to late 1970s.

Please come to Boston in the springtime,
I'm staying here with some friends and they've got lots of room.
You can sell your paintings on the sidewalk,
Near a cafe where I hope to be working soon.
Please come to Boston, She said no but you come home to me.

Chorus
And she said now ramblin' boy why don't you settle down,
Boston (Denver, L.A.) ain't your kind of town.
There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me,
I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee.

Please come to Denver for the snowfall,
Colorado life alone is just too hard to take.
We can throw I love echoes down the canyon,
And then lie awake all night till they come back around.
Please come to Denver, she said no, but you come home to me.
Chorus

Now this drifters world goes round and round,
And I doubt if it's ever going to stop.
But of all the things I've lost and found and all that I ain't got,
I still need to cling to, somebody I can sing to.

Please come to L.A. to live forever,
California life alone is just too hard to take
(I don't remember this part)
And there's some stars that fell from the sky living up on the hill.
Please come to L.A. she said no, boy, but you come home to me.
Chorus

I hope it helps. Kindest regards, Neil

I thought "Please come to Boston" was written by David Allen Coe

Dave Loggins, not Kenny Loggins--he wrote "Danny's Song" which was a big hit for Anne Murray--The woman in this song always struck me as being selfish and manipulative--stomping on his dreams on one hand, and proclaiming her love on the other--

I'm the number one fan of a man from Tennessee

Please come to Denver, where the snow falls
We'll move up into the mountains so high that we cain't be found
Through "I love you" echoes down the canyon
And we'll lie awake at night 'til they come back around

(Chorus / "Denver")
                Bm                            A
Now this drifter's world goes 'round and 'round,
          G                                       D
And I doubt if it's ever gonna stop,

But of all the dreams I've lost and found,
       G
And all that I ain't got,
                        Em                                     A
I still need to lean to, somebody I can sing to,

Please come to L.A., we'll live forever
The California life alone is just too hard to bear
We'll live in a house that looks out over the ocean
And there's some stars that fell from the sky, livin' up on the hill

(Chorus / "L.A.")
             Em                                                         A
D
I'm the number one fan of the man from Ten-n-es-see
