Elton John - "Rotten Peaches Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

We've moved on six miles from where we were yesterday

And yesterday is but a long long ways away
and forget rotten peaches and the places we've stayed

So we'll camp out tonight beneath the bright starlight

I left from the dockland two years ago now

Made my way over on the S.S. Marie

And I've always had trouble wherever I've settled
Rotten peaches are all that I see

Rotten peaches rotting in the sun

Seems I've seen that devil fruit since the world begun
Mercy I'm a criminal, Jesus I'm the one

Rotten peaches rotting in the sun

There is no one to hold when you're sick for your wife

There ain't no green grass in a U.S. state prison

And each day out you'll pick, you'll pick rotten peaches
You'll pick rotten peaches for the rest of your life

Oh I've had me my fill of cocaine and pills

for I lie in the light of the Lord

And my home is ten thousand, ten thousand miles away

And I guess I won't see it no more
