Elderberry Wine

Elton John a Bernie Taupin

Text písně

There’s a fly in the window, a dog in the yard,
And a year since I saw you;
There’s a trunk in the corner, I keep all my letters,
My bills and demands I keep too.

But I can’t help thinkin’ about the times
You were a wife of mine;
You aimed to please me, cooked blacked-eyed peas-me,
Made Elderberry Wine.

Drunk all the time, feelin’ fine,
On Elderberry Wine,
Those were the days, we’d lie in the haze,
Forget depressive times.

How can I ever get it together
Without a wife in line
To pick the crop and get me hot
On Elderberry Wine?

Round a tree in the summer, a fire in the fall,
Flat out when we couldn’t stand,
The bottle went round, like a woman down South
Passed on from hand to hand.

But I can’t help thinkin’ about the times,
You were a wife of mine,
You aimed to please me, cooked blacked-eyed peas-me,
Made Elderberry Wine.
