​L.A. Lady

This song is by New Riders of the Purple Sage and appears on the album The Adventures Of Panama Red (1973).

Someone said she came here from L.A.
Well I know she rides the one-way fare
Looks like she's had more than her share
I don't believe the L.A. lady really cares

If she lives or dies
I don't wonder why
'Cause I can see the sadness in her eyes
Oh the love she had
You know it's all turned bad
But you know the L.A. lady's not one to cry

If you want to understand her story
You've got to read between the lines
You see how love can bring you down, Lord it's so unfair
And that's why the L.A. lady she don't care

If she lives or dies
Well I don't wonder why
'Cause I can see the sadness in her eyes
For the love she had
Well it's all turned bad
But you know the L.A. lady's not one to cry
But you know the L.A. lady's not one to cry
You know the L.A. lady's not one to cry
