HOMEMADE WINE

My first attempt at making wine was Dandelion and it wasn’t bad. The next was Elderflower and that was better. The third attempt was simply divine; it was Elderberry.

I just hit the right combination and my first batch of Elderberry wine tasted like a very good Port! Really strong and exceedingly tasty.

I made several bottles and they lasted years…I think I still have a couple in the garage. Bing and Richard also accompany this song

 

HOMEMADE WINE     by Tim Kent

SOME PEOPLE ASK ME WHY I LOOK SO FINE AND I TELL THEM RIGHT AWAY

IT’S HOMEMADE WINE MY ELDERBERRY WINE THAT’S WHAT I DRINK EACH DAY

IT’S HOMEMADE WINE AND IT DOES ME GOOD OR SO I SAY EACH DAY

WHEN I TAKE A SWIG FROM THE BOTTLE OR THE WOOD IT WILL DRIVE MY BLUES AWAY

Chorus:

I SWIG IT IN THE MORNING AND AGAIN LAST THING AT NIGHT

AND EVERY TIME WHEN I’M FEELING LOW WELL IT MAKES ME FEEL ALRIGHT

 

IT IS STRONG WINE AND I’VE GOT TO WATCH OUT OR I’LL SOON BE FLAT ON MY BACK

FOR IT HITS ME UNEXPECTEDLY WHEN I THINK I’M ALRIGHT JACK

IT STAYS WITH ME FOR A DAY OR TWO AND DRIVES MY BLUES AWAY

AND WHEN I THINK I’M READY TO GO IT FORCE ME TO DELAY

Chorus:

I SWIG IT IN THE MORNING AND AGAIN LAST THING AT NIGHT

AND EVERY TIME WHEN I’M FEELING LOW WELL IT MAKES ME FEEL ALRIGHT

 

IT’S HOMEMADE WINE ELDERBERRY WINE AND I’LL SWEAR IT KEEPS ME YOUNG

FOR AFTER A GLASS OR A BOTTLE OR TWO I’M FEELING RATHER NUMB

IT SHAKES ME UP AND IT BRINGS ME TO LIFE AND I’LL SWEAR BY IT’S POTENCY

THAT MY HOMEMADE ELDERBERRY WINE IS THE BEST FOR YOU AND ME

Chorus:

I SWIG IT IN THE MORNING AND AGAIN LAST THING AT NIGHT

AND EVERY TIME WHEN I’M FEELING LOW WELL IT MAKES ME FEEL ALRIGHT

 

IT’S HOMEMADE WINE MY ELDERBERRY WINE THAT’S WHAT I DRINK EACH DAY

IT’S HOMEMADE WINE MY ELDERBERRY WINE THAT’S WHY I SHOUT (HIP HIP) HOORAY
