Guitarist Gerry Beckley wrote this. When asked if it was written to anyone, Beckley said: "No, this is all poetic license. With 'Sister Golden Hair,' as far as my folks were concerned, I was writing a song about my sister, and I couldn't quite fathom it; they must not have listened to the lyrics."

The LP cover drawing was done by the late Phil Hartman of Saturday Night Live fame. (thanks, chet - saratoga springs, NY)
