Loggins and Messina, “Danny’s Song”

Another great 1970’s soft rock duo lost to the mists of time. These guys were absolutely huge back in the day. Fantastic music! From 1971! Enjoy!

People smile and tell me I’m the lucky one
And we’ve just begun
Think I’m gonna have a son
He will be like she and me, as free as a dove
Conceived in love
Sun is gonna shine above

And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright

Seems as though a month ago I beta chi
Never got high
Oh, I was a sorry guy
And now a smile, a face, a girl that shares my name
Now I’m through with the game
This boy will never be the same

And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise
you bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright

Pisces Virgo rising is a very good sign,
strong and kind
And the little boy is mine
Now I see a family where there once was none
now we’ve just begun
Yeah, we’re gonna fly to the sun

And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup
Drink it up
Love her and she’ll bring you luck
And if you find she helps your mind, buddy, take her home
Don’t you live alone
Try to earn what lovers own

And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
And everything will bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise, you bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright

    I was listening to that song last weekend, just contemplating about the way my life has been so far, instead of thinking about a loved one, really about myself.

    Sounds like the strangest coincidence, actually.

    Great tune. I love Messina’s country-tinged “You Better Think Twice” from the second Poco album.
