Kisses Sweeter Than Wine

Jimmy Rogers

Well, when I was a young man never been kissed
I got to thinkin’ it over, how much I’d missed
So I got me a girl and I kissed her and then, and then
Oh, lordy, well…. I kissed ’er again, because…

   She had kisses sweeter than wine
   She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine
   (Sweeter than wine)

Well, I asked her to marry and be my sweet wife
I told her we’d be so happy for the rest of our life
I begged her and I pleaded like a natural man
And then, whoops oh lordy, well she gave me her hand, because…

Repeat Chorus

Well, we worked very hard both me and my wife
Workin’ hand-in-hand to have a good life
We had corn in the field, wheat in the bin
And then, whoops oh lord, I was the father of twins, because…

Repeat Chorus

Well, our children they numbered just about four
And they all had a sweetheart a’knockin’ at the door
They all got married and they didn’t hesitate
I was, whoops oh lord, the grandfather of eight, because…

Repeat Chorus

Well, now that I’m old and I’m a’ready to go
I get to thinkin’ 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, because…

She had kisses sweeter than wine
She had, mmm, kisses…sweeter…than…wine…
