"LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Erik Braunn, the Iron Butterfly guitarist who played one of rock's most recognizable riffs in the 17-minute anthem 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,' died of cardiac arrest Friday. He was 52." (CNN online, Accessed July 28, 2003.)

My question - what did it mean?

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, honey,

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, baby,
don't you know that I'll always be true?
