Elton John - "Elderberry Wine Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

There's a fly in the window
And a year since I saw you
A dog in the yard
I keep all my letters
There's a trunk in the corner

My bills and demands I keep too
Well I can't help thinking
About the times
You aimed to please me
You were a wife of mine
Cooked black-eyed peas-me
Made elderberry wine
Drunk all the time

Feeling fine on elderberry wine
Forget depressive times
Those were the days
We'd lay in the haze
How can I ever get it together
Without a wife in line
On elderberry wine
To pick the crop and get me hot

Round a tree in the summer
A fire in the fall
The bottle went round
Like a woman down south
Flat out when they couldn't stand
