Dandelion Wine

This is my favorite song right now, it's by Ron Sexsmith (An illustrious Canadian artist) and so very lovely. Here are the lyrics but you really need to hear the song to truly appreciate it. Thanks Zaak for always scouting out great new tunes for us to listen to!

Dandelion Wine

And when I think of her
It's with the warmest thoughts
I took so much from her
I really learned a lot
How to dust off my heart
How to make it shine
How to take a field of dandelions
And make dandelion wine

Such sweet and simple days
Though bitter tasted the wine
We drank it anyway
For love had made it fine
When the world was young
When the road was bright
And the morning poured
Its golden light
Like dandelion wine

Oh I believed in us
Long before deceit and lust
Had lost the trust
Forgive me girl
Forgive me girl

Now when I sing to you
It's with a heavy heart
I took a love that was true
And tore it all apart
How can I let go
Of all those times?
With this memory
Of her hand in mine
And dandelion wine

And dandelion wine

Did I ever tell you about when I made dandelion wine in N.B. in the log house?? I didn't trust that it would be good...but Robi and all his buddies drank it and said it was really good...I'm surprised it didnt kill them!
That song reminds me of those times...I should get it on itunes. said...

I downloaded the song...very very lovely! thanks for telling me about it!...I bought another song called "Your Beautiful" by james Blunt. give it a listen...the lyrics are a bit odd...but very nice melody...and his voice is very fine.
