Neil Diamond is a native New Yorker but he’s Boston strong these days.

Over the weekend, he surprised Red Sox fans by singing his famed “Sweet Caroline” at Fenway Park.

Now he’s writing a new song about the marathon bombings.

It’s on the fast track and he hopes to have it finished by the weekend.
