Tupelo Honey

Lyrics: Van Morrison
Music: Van Morrison

Played a couple of times by Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders in early 1972

You can take all the tea in China
Put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail right around the seven oceans
Drop it straight into the deep blue sea

Chorus
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
She's an angel of the first degree
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey from the bee

You can't stop us on the road to freedom
You can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see
Men with insight, men in granite
Knights in armor bent on chivalry

[chorus]
