Cracklin Rosie Lyrics
Were gonna ride till there aint no more to go
Taking it slow
Lord, dont you know
Have made me a time with a poor mans lady
Hitchin on a twilight train
Aint nothing here that I care to take along

Wikipedia has the meaning of the song as discussed by Neil Diamond himself. Look it up to read it completely. The gist is that he had spent time with an Indian tribe where there were many more men than women so some nights the single men of the tribe would enjoy their drink (a sparking [crackling] red wine type of alcoholic beverage).
It clearly could be about a woman and I'm sure he knew that easy double meaning when he wrote it.
