Tupelo Honey Lyrics

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)

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

(chorus)

You know she's alright
You know she's alright with me
She's alright, she's alright
(she's an angel)

You can take all the tea in China
put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail it right around the seven oceans
Drop it smack dab in the
middle of 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 the honey, baby, from the bee
She's my baby, you know she's alright

I heard a tale of old Manhattan
I've never been there but I want to go
Standing waiting on my number
and my number's gonna show

Beautiful song! Something about it saddens me & comforts me at the same time. He's speaking of the statue of liberty :). Still, it's got a thousand other meanings to me.
