MONTEREY POP

PERFORMED BY DEREK MOMENT & MOMENT7
WRITTEN BY DEREK MOMENT

In ʼ67
For three days
Who and Hendrix
Played Monterey

Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there
Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there

Janis Joplin, Country Joe
The Airplane
And The Dead did shows

Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there
Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there

Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Byrds,
Simon & Garfunkel, Jefferson Airplane,
The Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service,
Big Brother and The Holding Company with Janis Joplin,
Country Joe and The Fish

It broke the mold
it set the tone
It rocked the world down to the bone

Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there
Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there

Eric Burdon and The Animals,
Moby Grape, Mamas and Papas,
The Association, Ravi Shankar
Laura Nyro, Paul Butterfield Blues Band,
The Electric Flag with Mike Bloomfield,
Blues Project With Al Kooper,
Booker T. & The MGʼs, Hugh Masekela,
Johnny Rivers, Steve Miller Band, Buffalo Springfield.

Woodstock was cute
Live Aid rather nice
But Monterey Pop
Was paradise

Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there
Monterey Pop (Monterey Pop)
I was there

In ʼ67 from heaven above
Came Gods of Rock
To the Summer of Love
While Hendrix set his Strat on fire
Townshend smashed his amplifier
The shows were held
On the grounds of a fair
But music magic
Was in the air
And Iʼm proud to say
That I was there
