    I was pleased to read the meaning was about drinking red wine alone; this is my favorite song and I always thought it was about a hooker.

    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.

    A song about drinking alone. Cracklin rose is an inexpensive red wine....'having a time with a poor mans lady....'
    another song of neils was about red wine...'red red wine'.
