Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it couldn't last.
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
For some California grass.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jojo, go home
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Back to where you once belonged.
Get back Jo.

Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
But she was another man
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back Loretta

Your mother's waiting for you
Wearing her high-heel shoes
And her low-neck sweater
Get back Loretta,
Get back, get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.

[thanks, Mo!... on behalf of the group I hope we passed the audition.]

    Get back to where you once belonged suggests a return to the prima unity to me, a return to the simplicity of divinity. Cannabis may get you there, but Mary Jane is a demanding mistress, so beware. There are other roads back to where you once belonged...

    Paul & Linda had a tiny hidden ranch in Tucson. Actually Eastern side of the valley in between The Santa Catalina and Rincon mountain ranges near Saguaro National Park East and surrounded by off-limits forest service & BLM land and such. Tucson was cool. Back in the seventies & early eighties Linda Rondstadt's brother Peter was Chief of Police and a very wise man. Ran the best Dept. in the country. Tucson was a beautiful gentle, artist town. Now there are too many people and it sucks so don't move there. At any rate, Paul popped-up in his straw hat one time at a road side stand that was selling jewelry & art and surprised all my artist friends. I wasn't there but word went around that Paul was in town when he and Linda would want to stay at the ranch. The locals gave them their space and the two were kind enough to join your space if you were in the right place at the right time. He felt he could act somewhat like a regular guy there.
    Get Back is a Paul song and a Cannabis Song: {running late!}

    1st:

    2nd: Sweet Loretta Martin thought she was a woman
    But she was another man [Seedling thought he was another female but he was a male or probably a hermaphrodite ]
    All the girls around her say she's got it coming
    But she gets it while she can [All the female seedlings or little plants say's she's gonna be pulled (cut and removed)...]

    3rd:

    Can someone fill in the rest... I'm ot of time -off to work.
