It spent two weeks at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1974; it spent one week atop the Billboard Easy Listening chart.

The three verses of the song are each a plea from the narrator to a woman whom he hopes will join him in, respectively, Boston, Denver, and Los Angeles, with each verse concluding: "She said "No - boy would you come home to me""; the woman"s sentiment is elaborated on in the chorus which concludes with the line: "I"m the number one fan of the man from Tennessee. " Tennessee is the home state of Dave Loggins, who has said of "Please Come to Boston" - "The story is almost true, except there wasn"t anyone waiting so I made her up. In effect, making the longing for stronger. It was a recap to my first trip to each of those cities... how I saw each one. The fact of having no one to come home to made the chorus easy to write. Some forty years later, I still vividly remember that night , and it was as if someone else was writing the song."more »
