elderberry wine lyrics – elton john

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

well i can’t help thinking
about the times
you were a wife of mine
you aimed to please me
cooked black-eyed peas-me
made elderberry wine

drunk all the time
feeling fine on elderberry wine
those were the days
we’d lay 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 they couldn’t stand
the bottle went round
like a woman down south
p*ssed on from hand to hand

well i can’t help thinking
about the times
you were a wife of mine
you aimed to please me
cooked black-eyed peas-me
made elderberry wine

drunk all the time
feeling fine on elderberry wine
those were the days
we’d lay 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

drunk all the time
feeling fine on elderberry wine
those were the days
we’d lay 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

elderberry wine
elderberry wine
elderberry wine
elderberry wine
elderberry wine
elderberry wine
elderberry wine
