Strawberry Wine
Deana Carter Lyrics


He was working through college on my grandpa's farm
I was thirsting for knowledge and he had a car
I was caught somewhere between a woman and a child
When one restless summer we found love growing wild
On the banks of the river on a well beaten path
It's funny how those memories they last
Like strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love oh bittersweet
Green on the vine
Like strawberry wine

I still remember when thirty was old
And my biggest fear was September when he had to go
A few cards and letters and one long distance call
We drifted away like the leaves in the fall
But year after year I come back to this place
Just to remember the taste
Of strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love oh bittersweet
Green on the vine
Like strawberry wine

The fields have grown over now
Years since they've seen the plow
There's nothing time hasn't touched
Is it really him or the loss of my innocence
I've been missing so much

Like strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love oh bittersweet
Green on the vine
Like strawberry wine
Strawberry wine
Strawberry wine

I met this girl through a wrong number I had called. I was trying to call my buddy Bob and ended up talking to this girl. We talked for hours and days passed and I forgot to get that girls number. One day out of the blue the phone rang, it was the girl I had talked to for hours a few days ago. This time I was smart enough to get her number............That was 43 years ago, two children and five grand children and all because of a wrong number! I don't know if it was fate but I'm sure glad it happened and I love her more every day, she can bring sunshine on the gloomiest of days and the happiness she brings me is unbelievable.

@Lisa B the number still on your phone? In the late 70s? Unlikely!

This was my sister's favorite song. I helped her "record" a video for this, in our front yard. It was on a shoulder camcorder, and absolutely rediculous. That house is gone, so is she. It hurts how fast things go. Appreciate what you have.
