Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
Jackson:
When I was a young man I'd never been kissed
I got to thinking about what I had missed
I found a girl. I kissed her and then...
Oh lord, I kissed her again

Together:
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine

Bonnie:
He asked me to marry and be his sweet wife
We would be happy -- all of our life
He begged and he pleaded like a natural man, and then...
Oh lord, I gave him my hand

Together:
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine
Ooh, kisses...

Jackson:
I worked mighty hard and so did my wife
Working hand in hand to make a good life
Corn in the field and wheat in the bins, and then...
Oh lord, I was the father of twins

Together:
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine
Ooh, kisses...

Bonnie:
Our children numbered just about four
And they all had sweethearts knocking on the door
They all got married and they didn't wait, I was...
Oh lord! a grandmother of eight!

Together:
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine
Ooh, kisses...

Jackson:
Now we are old and ready to go
Thinking about what happened a long time ago

Bonnie:
We had lots of kids and trouble and pain, but...
Oh lord, we'd do it again

Together:
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine
Ooh, kisses...
Ooh, kisses sweeter than wine
Ooh, kisses...
