Round a tree in the summer

A fire in the fall
Flat out when they couldn’t stand
The bottle went round
Like a woman down south
Passed on from hand to hand

Well I can’t help thinking

About the times
You were a wife of mine
You aimed to please me
Cooked black-eyed peas-me
Made elderberry wine

    I have loved Elton John music since I was about 14 years old when my sisters and their friends took me to the ACC on the Notre Dame Campus in South Bend, Indiana for the Madman Across the Water Tour….I am 57 years old now…so that had to have been in the summer of 1967….I made up my mind there and then that if it was the last thing I did, I would learn to play his music…well, I never got as good as Elton…but I learned enough to appreciate what it must take to become a musician as talented as he is:>) Elton John is the best…so is Bernie Taupin:>) ….peace, everyone….bernie dolezal junior
