Nicola Gordon & Susan Marie Reeves wrote this song at a party for Pat Miliken, as 2 people were leaving who lived in Santa Ynez valley, Susan said, "Be Well in the Valley" and then they wrote the song


Be well in the valley
Be well on your own
Be well in the valley
So far from home

Be well with your children
Be well with your wife
Be well in the valley
Dream of me tonight (chorus)

Last time I saw you
You held me so tight
I could have just died there
Our love was so right


But now I just hear your voice whisper my name
You chose another love nothing’s the same
