Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Well, when I was a young man never been kissed
I got to thinkin' 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 '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 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
Because she had kisses sweeter than wine
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine
(Sweeter than wine)

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

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

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, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine

I was 18 years old when this came out ,and in love and fantasized about how my life would be with my love based on the lyrics of the song. Alas reality set in and no we didn’t marry,she went her way and I went mine.But when I listen to this song it brings back bitter sweet memories.

That's weird. It kinda did the same for me. I grew up in the 80s with parents who played this kind of music on road trips. Music like this always sent me into this daydream where I would wonder what love was like.

Terry Wilson

So sorry it didn't happen for you two!! Hope you did find love that made you happy!! If not I hope you get experience love !! I'm married to the same man for 34 years!!

Bonnie Moerdyk

It is a bittersweet sadness Vito, I too had dreams of marrying my childhood sweetheart, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. Hope you are doing well and have some happiness in your life.
