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
Passed 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
