Don Henley is vooral bekend als zanger en drummer van de rockgroep The Eagles. Als die band in 1980 uiteen valt gaat Don solo. In ons land scoort hij slechts één hit The Boys Of Summer dat uitgroeit tot een ware klassieker. New York Minute dat in 1989 niet de Top 40 haalt is ook een bekende track van Henley.

Hij bracht tot nu toe in totaal vijf soloalbums uit, waarvan zijn laatste album: Cass County uit 2015.


Songtekst

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm drivin' by your house
Though I know you're not home

But I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your
Sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong after the boys of
Summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream?
Now I don't understand what's happened
To our love,
But baby when I get you back
I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
I see you walkin' real slow
And you're smilin' at everyone
I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong after the boys of
Summer have gone

Out on the road today
I saw a deadhead sticker
On a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said,
"Don't look back.
You can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was,
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but

I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down
And that radio on baby
And I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong after the boys of
Summer have gone

I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and
Those Wayfarers on, baby

I can tell you my love for you
Will still be strong after the boys of
Summer have gone
