about

The Santa Ana’s are a distinctly California phenomenon… most people don’t realize this, but arrests for domestic violence and for other anger related crimes go up by a significant percentage when the Santa Ana’s blow in. There are some who consider them the “devil winds”. How could one not want to write about that?

lyrics

Some people say there’s nothin’ to it
Just hot sandy air blowin’ in
There’s a California reason … the only change in season
Known as the Santa Ana Winds

Most people talk like it was evil
They don’t understand what it’s all about
Almost too afraid of what it’s blowin’ in
To be thankful for what it’s blowin’ out
(chorus)
Maybe it’s the spirits of the Conquistadores
Coming back from long long ago
Or the Conestoga sailors that foundered in Death Valley
Only Santa Ana knows

They’re the mystery of Southern California
To some they’re beginnings … to some the end
But to me, they’re as real as this old horse I’m riding
Known as the Santa Ana Winds
(chorus)
They never die, they’re in the San Jacinto Mountains
Waitin’ with an ever watchful eye
If you listen in the evening on the sand down by the ocean
You can hear their distant cry
(chorus)
Maybe it’s the spirits of the Conquistadores
Coming back from long, long ago
Or the Conestoga sailors that foundered in Death Valley
Only Santa Ana knows
Only Santa Ana knows
I said… only Santa Ana knows
