Peace of Mind

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Along with "Lovin' Me" and "To Make a Woman Feel Wanted," this is one of three songs in a trilogy on the first Loggins and Messina album. Sittin' In was originally intended to be a Kenny Loggins solo album but didn't end up that way, as it became clear the producer Jim Messina should be billed as an artist.
  • Jim Messina wrote this when he was in the band Poco in the late 1960s, and it has the feeling of a protest song.
  • When Loggins & Messina reunited for a reunion tour in 2005, Kenny decided to improvise on Messina's song by singing his own lines. This can be seen on the DVD Live Sittin' In Again at the Santa Barbara Bowl.
  • "Peace of Mind" was released on the same single as "House at Pooh Corner." >>
