He was working through college on my grandpa's farm
I was thirsting for knowledge and he had a car, yeah
I was caught somewhere between a woman and a child
One restless summer we found love growing wild
On the banks of the river on a well beaten path
It's funny how those memories they last

Like strawberry wine, seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, whoa bittersweet
But green on the vine
Like strawberry wine

I still remember when thirty was old
My biggest fear was September when he had to go
A few cards and letters and one long distance call
We drifted away like the leaves in the fall
But year after year I come back to this place
Just to remember the taste

Of strawberry wine, seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, whoa bittersweet
But green on the vine
Like strawberry wine

The fields have grown over now
Years since they've seen a plow
There's nothing time hasn't touched
Is it really him or the loss of my innocence
I've been missing so much?
Yeah

Like strawberry wine, and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, whoa bittersweet
And green on the vine

Like strawberry wine, and seventeen
The hot July moon saw everything
My first taste of love, whoa bittersweet
But green on the vine
Like strawberry wine
