Cherry Berry

Cherry, cherry berry
Cherry berry wine
Me-oh-my but the time goes by
On that cherry berry wine
Cherry, cherry berry
Cherry berry wine
Me-oh-my but the time goes by
On that cherry berry wine

Once upon a summer, yes
Once upon a time
Spent my money like my youth
On that cherry berry wine

That was the summer of you and I
Oh what a wonderful time
Sitting and sippin’ the night away
On that cherry berry wine

Cherry, cherry berry
Cherry berry wine
Me-oh-my but the time goes by
On that cherry berry wine

That was a very good year, my dear
Now my heart is cryin’
I let my dreams, Lord, float away
On that cherry berry wine

I’m gonna leave this town tomorrow, yes
See what I can find
I’m a-lookin’ for that ocean full
Of that cherry berry wine

Cherry, cherry berry
Cherry berry wine
Me-oh-my but the time goes by
On that cherry berry wine
Cherry, cherry berry
Cherry berry wine
Me-oh-my but the time goes by
On that cherry berry wine
I sit and grieve of the days gone by
I sit and dream and I sometimes cry
Gotta ease my troubled mind
With that cherry berry wine
