Amoreena

Album: Tumbleweed Connection (1970)
  • Lately I've been thinking how much I miss my lady
    Amoreena's in the cornfield brightening the daybreak
    Living like a lusty flower, running through the grass for hours
    Rolling through the hay like a puppy child

    And when it rains the rain falls down
    Washing out the cattle town
    And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
    And she dreams of crystal streams
    Of days gone by when we would lean
    Laughing fit to burst upon each other

    I can see you sitting eating apples in the evening
    The fruit juice flowing slowly, slowly, slowly
    Down the bronze of your body
    Living like a lusty flower, running through the grass for hours
    Rolling through the hay like a puppy child

    And when it rains the rain falls down
    Washing out the cattle town
    And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
    And she dreams of crystal streams
    Of days gone by when we would lean
    Laughing fit to burst upon each other

    Oh if only I could nestle in the cradle of your cabin
    My arms around your shoulders the windows wide and open
    While the swallow and the sycamore are playing in the valley
    Oh I miss you Amoreena like a king bee misses honey

    And when it rains the rain falls down
    Washing out the cattle town
    And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
    And she dreams of crystal streams
    Of days gone by when we would lean
    Laughing fit to burst upon each other

    And when it rains the rain falls down
    Washing out the cattle town
    And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
    And she dreams of crystal streams
    Of days gone by when we would lean
    Laughing fit to burst upon each other

    Lately I've been thinking how much I miss my lady
    Amoreena's in the cornfield brightening the daybreak
    Living like a lusty flower, running through the grass for hours
    Rolling through the hay like a puppy, like a puppy childWriter/s: Elton John, Bernie Taupin

  • Craig from Rocknrollroy247@gmail.comUnmistakably one of my all time favorite songs and album by Elton and Bernie....Top 5
  • Robin from Milford, NjHats off to the most ingenius, prolific and entirely successful songwriting duo ever! Oh, and I DID name my daughter "Amoreena!"
  • Angela from San Diego, CaHis first manager, John Reid, had a little girl named Amoreena that most likely inspired Bernie to use this title. My band Integr8d Soul Rocket, Man plays this song: my favorite by Sir Elton!
  • Paul from Belfast, United KingdomWe used to have an old radiogram that had great bass sound. I always loved listening to Amoreena on it - Dee Murray was such an unrecognised talent. Love this whole album, always rated it as Elton's best.
  • Jay from London, OnWhat a wonderful song. I recently felt as though the song may have a deeper meaning - that "Amoreena" had possibly met a tragic end maybe in an auto accident or an accident of some kind -on listening to the lyrics " Amoreena's in the cornfield brightening the daybreak" it brought to mind how people often leave memorial markers at the roadsides where loved ones have tragically perished. I don't know it is just something that crossed my mind that I wanted to share.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis song is written and sung so well, I'm surprised a whole lot of couples didn't end up naming their baby girls "Amoreena"...it is beautiful.
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaWritten by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, It is amazing how two Brits can capture Americana so well..Great song from an equally great album...
  • Kevin from Reading , PaAgreed. This is a fine song.
  • Guy from Chicago, IlGreat song great album.
  • Lester from New York City, NyI could swear Elton is singing this love song to a cow. 'Tumbleweed Connection' is undoubtedly one of the greatest albums ever.
  • Bryan from Flint, MiOne of my favorites. Taupin had such a grasp of the American heartland, it's almost scary. The best Elton song that nobody knows!
