Kisses Sweeter Than Wine   The Weavers (#19 in 1951), Jimmie Rodgers (#3 in 1957)

Well, when I was a young man, Never been kissed
I got to thinking it over, How much I had missed
So I got me a girl, And I kissed her and then,
And then oh, lordy, Well I kissed her again

Because she had kisses

Sweeter than wine

She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine

Well I asked her to marry, And to be my sweet wife
I told her we'd be so happy, For the rest of our life
I begged and I pleaded, Like a natural man
And then, whoops oh lordy,, Well she gave me her hand  Chorus
Well we worked very hard, Both me and my wife
Working hand-in-hand, To have a good life
We had corn in the field, And wheat in the bin
And then, whoops oh lord,  I was the father of twins  Chorus
Well our children they numbered, Just about four
And they all had a sweetheart, A'knocking on the door
They all got married, And they wouldn't hesitate
I was, whoops oh lord, The grandfather of eight  Chorus
Well now that I'm old, And I'm ready to go
I get to thinking what happened, A long time ago
Had a lot of kids,  A lot of trouble and pain
But then, whoops oh lordy,  Well I'd do it all again   Chorus (2x)
