Raspberry
Hot and dirty
No hurry
Bradbury
Summertime in Hawkins Falls Illinois
Slow warm wind blowing in from the prairie
Shaking up the drugstore cowboys
Making the Widow Cantrell toss in her bed at night
She's dreaming of strawberries
Strawberries

Easy love it's easy
Love I can feel it
Trust me love I can see it
I have wanted you so long

Electric wire
By the church spire
Catches fire
Flames get higher
In the vacant lot behind the Hawkins Falls Congregational
Sweet sad smoke rises
Everybody's sleeping
All except the cursing deacon
Watching the dreams he planted
Burn in the opium night
With whispers of strawberries
Strawberries

Easy love it's easy...

Wind is right
On a summer night
Stars are bright
Like a raggedy kite
The sacrament floats through Hawkins Falls Illinois
Coloring the dreams of the people as they're sleeping
Cooling the brows of the drugstore cowboys
Making the Widow Cantrell smile in her bed all alone
She's dreaming of strawberries
Strawberries

Easy love it's easy...
