James, Tommy - Sweet Cherry Wine (Gospel Version) Lyrics




C'mon, everyone, we got to get together now
Oh, yeah, love's the only thing that matters anyhow
And the beauty of life
Can only survive
If we love one another

Oh, yeah, yesterday my friends were marching out to war
Oh, yeah, listen, now, we ain't a-marching anymore
No, we ain't gonna fight
Only God has the right
To decide who's to live and die

He gave us sweet cherry wine
So very fine
We'll drink it right down
Pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine
(All day and night)
And everybody's gonna feel so fine
Drinking sweet cherry wine
Yes, they will

Watch the mountain turn to dust and blow away
Oh, Lord, you know there's got to be a better way
And the old masquerade
Is a no soul parade
Marchin' through the ruins of time

To save us, he gave us
Sweet cherry wine
So very fine
We'll drink it right down
Pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine
Everybody's gonna feel so fine
Drinking sweet cherry wine

Oh, sweet cherry wine
So very fine
We'll drink it right down
Pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine
C'mon, drink it with your brother
Trust in one another
Yeah, yeah
We need each other
Sweet cherry wine
Drink it right down
Pass it all around
People, don't you know
The cup is running over?
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh
Oh
Come on
Come on
Hey (Sweet)
Ooh
Ooh

  4. rkernell

    The B3 gives me chills each time that I hear it. This song is my favorite of TJ&S. Crimson and Clover and Crystal Blue Persuasion and this were the songs of my junior high time and the stay with me.. Thank you Tommy!!!!

    John sarab

    I favor CBP by a little bit. both songs - awesom. TJ&S are soooooo overlooked!

  5. rkernell

    This song, Crystal Blue Persuasion and Crimson and Clover are among some of the greatest songs of the era. This was the formative period in my life and I am lucky to have these influences...

    John sarab

    Huge ditto right here. Aw, when music had a melody and a message.

  6. Josh Levy

    The gold standard for late 60's music....GREAT SONG

  7. Edward Branca

    Because I take psychiatric medication, I cannot drink the sweet cherry wine, or any alcoholic beverage.

    L Ramsey

    You can drink this wine, it's not alcoholic. The sweet cherry wine that he's talking about is the blood of Jesus. I just watched him in an interview and it came out and said what these songs are about Crystal Blue Persuasion was about finding Jesus and we are All God's Children listen to the song read the lyrics and keep God in mind and you'll understand it.

    @L Ramsey PRAISE KING JESUS FOREVERMORE!
