Strawberries, cherries
And an angel´s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made
From all these things

I walked in town
On silver spurs that jingled too
And sang a song
That I had sang just for a few
She saw my silver spurs
And said lets pass some time
And I will give to you summer wine
Oh summer wine

Strawberries, cherries
And an angel´s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made
From all these things

Take off your silver spurs
And help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Oh summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips
They could not speak
I tried to get up
But I could not find my feet
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me more summer wine
Oh summer wine

Strawberries, cherries
And an angel´s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made
From all these things
Take off your silver spurs
And help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Oh summer wine

When we woke up the sun was shining in our eyes
My silver spurs were gone
My head felt twice the size
We took my silver spurs a dollar and a dime
And left us craving for more summer wine
Oh summer wine

(This song was originally performed by Nancy Sinatra, features Bono on co-lead vocals, and can be found on the Corrs album, the Corrs Live From Dublin.

    General CommentI made my mother listen to this one because she would'nt understand why I loved U2 so much. She asked me if I was sure this was Bono, because she never knew he could also sound like this! She obviously never bothered to really listen to U2.
    Anyway, I like this song a lot because it is a different side of Bono we don't often get to hear (except maybe for I've got you under my skin and When the stars go blue). I really like his voice, it's very low and if I would'nt know better I would think it was a real silver spurred cowboy!

    For the meanings of this song I think there raher obvious. She seduced him with her summerwine and stole his silver spurs in the end.

    General CommentWhat a beautiful song!!!! Although, to be honest, I'm refering to the version of Nancy Sinatra...
