She grew up on a side of the road
Where the church bells ring and strong love grows
She grew up good
She grew up slow
Like American honey

Steady as a preacher
Free as a weed
Couldn't wait to get goin'
But wasn't quite ready to leave
So innocent, pure and sweet
American honey

There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowin' in the wind
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing's sweeter than summertime
And American honey

Get caught in the race
Of this crazy life
Tryin' to be everything can make you lose your mind
I just wanna go back in time
To American honey, yea

There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowin' in the wind
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothing's sweeter than summertime
And American honey

Gone for so long now
I gotta get back to her somehow
To American honey

Ooh There's a wild, wild whisper
Blowin' in the wind
Callin' out my name like a long lost friend
Oh I miss those days as the years go by
Oh nothin's sweeter than summertime
And American honey
And American honey

    My son and i would watch this video each morning before he went to school. One of the only country songs that he likes. So every time i hear it it takes back to those mornings.

    To me, this song is about a woman caught up in the crazy rat race of a busy life. She longs to go back to the time when she was a young innocent girl growing up in the country, where things move slower, and life was simpler.

    A women is thinking about her childhood in the south. How she didn't have a care in the world. Now she is busy with life, but she needs to get back to being care-free.

    This is the best song ever! I think that it talks about a childhood that she grew up from, and that she wants to go back there and to a day. To just be happy and remember those days that she had a good time.

    Its about a woman who remembers her youth and the time when she didnt have anything to worry about . Being able to kick back and relax is what its all about...
