Monterey Lyrics

The people came and listened
Some of them came and played
Others gave flowers away, yes they did
Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey
Young Gods smiled upon the crowd
Their music being born of love
Children danced night and day
Religion was being born
Down in Monterey

The birds and the airplane did fly
Oh, Ravi Shankars music made me cry
The Who exploded into fire and light
Hugh Masakela's music was black as night
The Grateful Dead blew everybodies mind
Jimi Hendrix baby,believe me, set the world on fire, yeah

His Majesty, Prince Jones, smiled as he moved among the crowd
Ten thousand electric guitars were grooving real loud, yeah
You want to find the truth in life
Don't pass music by
and you know I would not lie, no I would not lie,
No, I would not lie
Down in Monterey

Three days of understanding of moving with one another
Even the cops grooved with us
Do you believe me, yeah?
Down in Monterey
I think that maybe I'm dreaming
Down in monterey
Did you hear what I said?

  • This song is about the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. The lyrics contain references to many of the bands who played there including Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, The Who, The Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones (who didn't perform, but did introduce Hendrix to the crowd). The Animals had just broken up and re-formed with new members backing up lead singer Eric Burdon. In our 2010 interview, Burdon said: "It was the first gig we'd played with a new lineup. We had hardly had a chance to rehearse, but we made it though. I have great memories of being there. It was a wonderful weekend and I'll never forget it." (Read the full interview with Eric Burdon.)
