Summerwine Lyrics

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring.
My Summerwine is really made from all these things...

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled too,
a song that I had only sang to just a few.
She saw my silver spurs and said...

    I think this is the ultimate seduction song. The handsome stranger walks into town and he meets a woman who is a temptress and she seduces him with her beauty and sensuality. She says to him.. take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time and i will give to you my summerwine.. Summerwine.. is not really wine..but it is a symbolism for sex.. wine being very sensual and very seductive. / Now he is so intoxicated by her beauty and sensuality and the allure of her essence..... strawberries, cherries... ooh Summerwine../ When he wakes up he finds her gone along with his silver spurs and his money..but the power of her seduction of his soul leaves him just craving and wanting more of her summerwine. .

    Some women don't believe that they can "ejaculate" like a man does when he climaxes. Apparently... women's ejaculate/squirt has a taste like fructose (fruit sugar) hence the connection to strawberries and cherries. For you women with a "yoni", try searching "Yoni Massage" on the web. Cheers! (and, you're welcome)

    I agree with Rosemary. It’s all about seduction. Gets the guy intoxicated with wine and walks away with the silver spits

    Wine gently poured down her midriff so that it winds down to her sweet nether region where he drinks a little of the nectar and shares it with his lover.

    The fact she reassured him with an unfamiliar line, may mean I'm menstruating. But it's fine. Hence summer wine, or blood as in virginity.
    That's my take.
    Very lusty indeed.
    Whatever floats your boat.

    This came off a movie soundtrack about 2 vampires that have lived for centuries, were in love with each other, married, lived seperately. He is an mellow dramatic musician and she is hungry for knowledge and experiences. They do not feed like "typical" vampires. The stay with me to help me pass the time... they were both sick of still being "living undead" and they came together in the end, drank the summer wine which happened to be blood. All of the other concepts of this song are per your own thought on it there is no right or wrong. But this is if you watch the movie the song comes on as they are drinking a very small amount of blood dear.

    I think the "unfamiliar line" that no one has ever been able to understand, is the line of the vagina. It looks weird but read it again and again and you will get it. This syncs with the obv. sexual interpretation.

    Just listened to the song again and then found this site.

    It could be wine, it could be sex, it could be both. I think it definitely involves a lot of sex myself.

    It could, I doubt it, but it could also mean drinking her p.. Quite a delightful and very intimate thing to go along with sex and could lead to even more intoxication depending on what's in her system, besides strawberries and cherries that is.

    Her "reassuring line" could be something like "don't worry, try it, your going to love it".

    That's one thing that is great about the song, the way it's meaning can be interpreted in so many different ways.

    What could the "unfamiliar line" have been? His songs were filled with lots of double meanings, equaling sexual suggestions( without actually using the words). With his deep voice, soulful brown eyes and that slender build with a swagger, he was a Babe. Not to mention that moustache. I was seven when my parents played this song. Seven! R.IP.

    I think that the cowboy, fresh from the trail, meets a sexy siren, promising something called Summer Wine. He follows her lead, most likely had a intoxicated passion and wakes up alone, with his prized possessions & money gone. Even with his head twice it's size, he would do it again. If Lee Hazlewood sang ANYTHING to me, I would have followed that man anywhere. Those soulful brown eyes and that moustache! He was one of kind, R.I.P.cowboy.

    Idette: Maybe she gave him the old, "Don't worry baby, it happens to every man at least once"! Someone suggested it was about cocaine. But that was not a popular drug in 1967. Lee Hazelwood could sing ANYTHING and it would sound seductive.

    If you listen to the Nancy Sinantra/Lee Hazelwood version, it is a song of seducation. His voice was sexy, but the lyrics convey a cowboy just off the trail. Nancy makes strawberries, cherries, etc. very seductive. The orchestra in the background was great. One of Lee Hazelwood's best. R.I.P.

    Sex? Uhmmm, no, I do not think so.

    That's what Nancy promised to Lee, and what he, the Cowboy with not much experience with women, more with cattle, expected:

    *** 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

    But what did he actually get? A lot of cheap wine:

    *** My head felt heavy and my lips they could not speak
    *** I tried to get up but I couldn´t find my feet
    *** When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
    *** My silver spurs were gone, my head felt twice its size

    To make things worse, she had stolen all his little belongings.

    *** She took my silver spurs, a dollar and a dime
    *** And left me cravin´ for more summer wine

    You do not get a heavy head from sex or from p...

    I agree. I think that it is about a silver spurred cowboy and a woman.She sees him (focusing more on his silver spurs) And discuss him with her "summer wine" (which is a symbol for sex) they end up in bed, later in the morning his spurs and money are gone. But he still craves for her
