Lyrics

You can take all the tea in China
Put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail right around all the seven oceans
Drop it straight into the deep blue sea

If your body don't just move to this song....you just don't get it, this is one of the ALL TIME CLASSICS.... j u s t let your body move & feel your way thru it....
Great song by a great artist
Wayne with an abundant answer, actually very detailed insight. Right on man.
Pure Tupelo honey is produced from the White Ogeechee Tupelo (nyssa ogeche), it ranges through the Ogeechee River, the Apalachicola , and the Chattahooche e River Basins of northwest Florida. These river valleys are the only place in the world where Tupelo Honey is produced commercially . Bee hives are placed along the river's edge. The bees fan out through the surrounding Tupelo blossom rich swamps during April and May and return with nectar to produce their liquid treasure.
Its about the honey in his womans hive
What exactly is tupolo honey? And does it really matter. Sounds great to me
Guess that brown-eyed girl will always be linked to Van, but tupelo honey should be his signature song. Or maybe a couple dozen others. Damn! Too many too choose!

Hard to pick a fav by any artist. But tupelo honey could mine by van. Heard somewhere that Dylan wrote it?

This is the song that made me love Van, back in high school.
An angel of the 1st degree - what a sweet song.
Quite simply my favorite Morrison song ever. Smooth. Beautiful. She's An Angel - May we all feel that way about our spouses.
Just like honey from the bee
His best song.....lov e him.

Nice to see Van's music getting out on YouTube and other digital avenues. Timeless classics that every generation should enjoy!

A smart, sensitive artist who writes songs that last & last. His mediocre songs top most people's greatest offerings...
