Strawberry Wine (Male Version)

Deana Carter

I was working through college
On my Grandpa's farm
She was thirsting for knowledge
And I had a car
 
Yeah, she was caught somewhere between
A woman and a child
One restless summer
We found love, growing wild
 
On the banks of the river, down 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
The green on the vine like strawberry wine
 
I still remember
When thirty was old
My biggest fear was September
When I 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
The green on the vine like strawberry wine
 
The fields have grown over now, years since they've seen a plow
There's nothing time hasn't touched
Is it really her or the loss of my innocence
I've been missing so much? Yeah
 
Strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh, bittersweet
And green on the vine
 
Like strawberry wine and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, oh, bittersweet
The green on the vine like strawberry wine
 
Strawberry wine
Strawberry wine
