High Sierra Tunes

Postby oldhikerQ » Mon Nov 13, 2017 6:03 pm

Does anyone have a song that says "High Sierra" to them? Kind of like a California version of Rocky Mountain High?
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Coincidentally, I was departing the trailhead after looking around Red Lake for Larry Conn back in 2012 when I first heard this Boz Scaggs tune . Now of course whenever I hear it, it reminds me of that experience. Not sure why it didn't get much air time.

Gentlemen,
Thank you both for the songs. Had no idea that Boz Scaggs recorded a Sierra tune.

I searched the allmusic.com database for songs with 'sierra' in the title and got over 1000 hits.

Dave54,
Thank you for referring me to that resource. I had no idea that it existed. Looks like I've got a bit of work to go through 1000+ songs.
