"Sweet Thistle Pie" as written by and David Charles/hickman Lowery....
It's been a long time since I had sweet thistle pie
It's been a long time since I had sweet thistle pie
She claps her hands and snaps her fingers
Knows my name but calls me ginger
It's been a long time since I had sweet thistle pie

Hey, hey, hey, yeah

Sweet thistle pie
Sweet thistle pie
Sweet thistle pie

It's been a long time since I've been so very low
It's been a long time since I've been so very low
When I was young you were no stranger
Around the world and slip through my fingers
It's been a long time since I've been so very low

Hey, hey, hey, yeah

Sweet thistle pie
Sweet thistle pie
Sweet thistle pie

    General Commentclearly about cunnilingus. however, i think some of the lyrics are wrong, &, if i'm right, offers some insight into another cracker tune, "Low".

    i believe the 2nd verse begins "It's been a long time since i been soberly low."

    this contrasts the 'low' in the song "low" (which is a drug reference), with the 'low' in this song (which is a physical description).

    the chronology fits, as well:

    "low" is from 1993's Kerosene Hat, while "sweet thistle pie" is from 1996's The Golden Age.

    General CommentThe lyric is belly low. It's a southern term probably originating from descriptions of snakes. "Belly low" seems to fit with the analogies discussed in the previous posts too.
