"Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" as written by and Lee Hays Ronnie Gilbert....
Oh kisses sweeter than wine
Oh kisses sweeter than wine

When I was a young man never been kissed
I got to thinkin' it over how I had missed
I got me a girl and I kissed her and then
Oh, lord, well I kissed 'er again

Oh kisses sweeter than wine
Oh kisses sweeter than wine

He asked would I marry and be his sweet wife
Then we'd be so happy for the rest of our life
He begged daddy, pleaded like a natural man
And then, oh lord, I gave him my hand

Oh kisses sweeter than wine

I worked my day hard and so did my wife
Workin' hand-in-hand to make a good life
With corn in the field and wheat in the bins
Then, oh lord, I was the father of twins

Oh

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

Oh kisses sweeter than wine

Now that I'm old and ready to go
We get to thinkin' what happened a long time ago
We had a lot of kids, trouble and pain
But, oh lord, we'd do it all again


Oh kisses sweeter than wine
Oh kisses sweeter than wine

Oh
