Verse 1:

F#m
 Well, when I was a young man; never been kissed,
         Bm                   F#m
I got to thinkin' it over how much I had missed.
     F#m
So I got me a girl and I kissed her and then, and then,
Bm                  F#m
 Oh, Lordy, well, I kissed her again, because...

Chorus 1:

F#m      Bm     C#7          F#m
 She had kisses sweeter than wine,
         Bm (n.C)                      F#m
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

              Gm
(Sweeter than wine)...

        Gm
Well, I asked her to marry and to be my sweet wife,
           Cm                       Gm
I told her we'd be so happy for the rest of our life.
  Gm
I begged and I pleaded like a natural man,
          Cm (n.C)
And then, whoops oh Lordy, well she gave me her hand, because...

Chorus 2:

Gm       Cm     D7           Gm
 She had kisses sweeter than wine,
         Cm (n.C)                      Gm
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

Verse 3:

         G#m
Well, we worked very hard; both me and my wife,
        C#m             G#m
Workin' hand-in-hand to have a good life.
       G#m
We had corn in the field and wheat in the bin,
          C#m (n.C)
And then, whoops oh Lord, I was the father of twins, because...

Chorus 3:

G#m      C#m    D#7          G#m
 She had kisses sweeter than wine,
         C#m (n.C)                     G#m
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

              Am

Verse 4:

          Am
Well, our children they numbered just about four,
         Dm                     Am
And they all had a sweetheart a-knockin' on the door.
     Am
They all got married and they wouldn't hesitate,
       Dm (n.C)
I was, whoops oh Lord, the grandfather of eight, because...

Chorus 4:

Am       Dm     E7           Am
 She had kisses sweeter than wine,
         Dm (n.C)                      Am
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

      A#m
Well, now that I'm old and I'm a'ready to go,
         D#m                       A#m
I get to thinkin' what happened, a long time ago.
A#m
 Had a lot of kids, a lot of trouble and pain,
          D#m (n.C)
But then, whoops oh Lordy, well, I'd do it all again, because...

Chorus 5:

 She had kisses sweeter than wine,
         D#m (n.C)                     A#m   D#m, A#m
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine...
