Sourwood Honey
© & (P), I Miss You Records, 2012. Music & Lyrics by Rie Sinclair, BMI

The Sourwood up in Tennessee
Whose hollow trunk is home to honey bees
Now that east coast saved my tea & toast
A pot of golden sourwood for me

Sourwood Honey, yeah it’s – mighty sunny!
As every sweet tooth will say
Thank those dandy bees in the smoky peaks
Sourwood Honey on its way

When they blossom in the spring
You’ll hear a song of summer coming from the trees
So throw a cob in the bucket with a little dirt & luck
You’ll have your own pot of golden honey

Sourwood Honey, yeah it’s – mighty sunny!
As every sweet tooth will say
Thank those dandy bees in the smoky peaks
Sourwood Honey on its way

At the morning milk delivery
Set the kettle boiling, warm the huck-berry
A wasp ain’t my friend, the yellow jacket can’t
Make a pot of gold like a honeybee

Sourwood Honey, yeah it’s – mighty sunny!
As every sweet tooth will say
Thank those dandy bees in the smoky peaks
Sourwood Honey on its way
