Kisses Sweeter Than Wine


Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,

When I was a young man and never been kissed
I got to thinking it over what I had missed.
I got me a girl, I kissed her and then
Oh Lord, I kissed her again.

Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,

I asked her to marry and be my sweet wife,
And we would be so happy all of our life.
I begged and I pleaded like a natural man, and then
Oh Lord, she gave me her hand.

Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,

I worked mighty hard and so did my wife,
Workin' hand in hand to make a good life.
Corn in the field and wheat in the bins, I was
Oh Lord, the father of twins.

Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,

Our children numbered just about four,
And they all had sweethearts knockin' at the door.
The all got married and didn't hesitate; I was
Oh Lord, the grandfather of eight.

Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,

Now we are old, and ready to go,
We get to thinkin' what happened a long time ago.
Had a lot of kids, trouble and pain, but,
Oh Lord, we'd do it again.

Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine,
