   Words and Music by Paul Campbell and Joel Newman

     Bb       F        Gm          Dm     
When I was a young man never been kissed 
          F          Dm       G
I got to thinkin' it over how much I had missed 
     Bb        F          Gm             Dm       F
So I got me a girl and I kissed her and then, and then 
     Dm            G
Oh, lordy, well I kissed 'er again 

Bb          Dm   Gm7           D7   G
Because she had kisses sweeter than wine 
Bb       Dm         Gm7           D7    G
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine 
  Gm7     D7   G
(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 


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 and wheat in the bin 
And then, whoops oh lord, I was the father of twins 


Well our children they numbered just about four 
And they all had a sweetheart a'knockin' on the door 
They all got married and they wouldn't hesitate 
I was, whoops oh lord, the grandfather of eight 


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, mm  mm  Kisses Sweeter Than Wiiiiine

An F. K. Tab,, Enjoy!!
