About Amoreena

"Amoreena" is a song written by singer/songwriter Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin, and is the eighth track on John's 1970 Tumbleweed Connection album. A live version is also available on the 1995 reissue of the 17-11-70 album. The song accompanied the opening credits of the 1975 film Dog Day Afternoon, one of only three songs heard throughout the film. "Amoreena" is also the name of John's god-daughter."Amoreena", which appears to be about a young man yearning for his distant loved one, employs the same country-inspired rock sound which characterizes much of the Tumbleweed Connection album. John's piano riffs and chords are prominent throughout the mix, especially in the song's introduction, described by Rolling Stone magazine as "just great."The recording of this song heard on Tumbleweed Connection is significant in that John is accompanied for the first time by bass player Dee Murray and drummer Nigel Olsson, who would form the core of his rhythm section until their departure in 1975.

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 child
