On This Ride - Track Nine: When it gets over 100 degrees where we live, we go to San Francisco to cool off. We wrote this on a day the fog horn was blowing (in the key of A) about the sites and sounds of San Francisco. Our favorite city!
SAN FRANCISCO DAY

Lyrics

(a cappella)
It’s a Sanctuary
Sweet Cherry
Quakes make me a little wary
Ordinary San Francisco day

The horn blows “A” on the San Francisco Bay
Where painted yawls and people sprawl along the narrow way
I’ve come here today to wash my cares away
It’s 1-0-5 in the valley drive
But it won’t be here today

They line on the bridge to pay their fee
My brothers and my sisters overheated just like me
In this Sanctuary
Sweet Cherry
Quakes make me a little wary
Ordinary San Francisco day

As eucalyptus leaves copter down atop the breeze
I drift along in this simple song
And all the things I see

So much a state of mind
As it is a place and time
I take it home when I’m all alone
And need to feel alive

Hot dogs, big dogs and Frisbees in the air
Hippie freaks and families and folks who stop and stare
In this Sanctuary
Sweet Cherry
Quakes make me a little wary
Ordinary San Francisco day

Instrumental

I think the biggest treat,
Is all that is unique
There is no other place on earth
To find things like these

You got cable cars
And the Golden Gate
The Bay Bridge too but it don’t rate
A crooked street
And Alcatraz
Dykes on bikes
And assless chaps
In this Sanctuary
Sweet Cherry
Quakes make me a little wary
Ordinary San Francisco day

It’s an ordinary San Francisco day
