lyrics

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

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine.

He asked to marry and be his sweet wife
And we would be so happy for all of our lives.
He begged and he pleaded like a natural man
And then, oh lord, I gave him my hand.

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine.

I worked mighty hard and so did my wife
To get what we needed to make a good life.
With corn in the fields and wheat in the bins
And I was, oh lord, the father of twins.

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine.

Well our children numbered to just about four
They all had sweethearts knocking at their door.
They all got married and they didn’t hesitate
And I was oh lord, the grandmother of eight.

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine.

Now we are old and ready to go
We got to thinking what happened a long time ago.
We had a lot of children trouble and pain
But oh lord, we’d do it again.

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine.
