Song Lyric Sunday: Herbs and Spices – ‘Cinnamon Girl’

After having to dig a little deper than usual for inspiration last week, on this occasion I’m going with my first thought for Jim’s latest, flavour-packed, Song Lyric Sunday prompt. Anyway, we must be overdue another Neil Young song by now.

I hadn’t realised until I hit Youtube  that Lana del Rey had also performed a song called ‘Cinnamon Girl’, although it’s not the same one as this

I wanna live
With a cinnamon girl
I could be happy
The rest of my life
With a cinnamon girl
A dreamer of pictures
I run in the night
You see us together
Chasing the moonlight
My cinnamon girl
Ten silver saxes
A bass with a bow
The drummer relaxes
And waits between shows
For his cinnamon girl
A dreamer of pictures
I run in the night
You see us together
Chasing the moonlight
My cinnamon girl
Pa send me money now
I’m gonna make it somehow
I need another chance
You see your baby loves to dance
Yeah…yeah…yeah

Written by Neil Young
