Old Dogs, Children And Watermelon Wine
By Tom T. Hall


[Verse] 
G
How old do you think I am he said
C
I said well I didn’t know
D7                         C         G
He said I turned 65  about 11 months ago
 
                               C              Am
I was sitting in Miami pouring blended whisky down
          C        G               Am           D7     G
When this old grey black gentleman was cleaning up the lounge
                 G7                  C           Am
There wasn't any one around but this old man and me
D7                                  C        D7  G
The guy who tended bar was watching ironsides on tv
          G7              C             Am
Uninvited he sat down and opened up his mind
   C            G         Am  D7         G
On old dogs and children  and watermelon wine
 
                    G7                  C       Am
Have you ever had a drink of watermelon wine he asked
D7                               C      D7     G
He told me all about it though I didn't answer back
          G7                   C                       Am
Ain't but three things in life that's worth a solitary dime
       C            G         Am  D7         G
That's old dogs and children  and watermelon wine
 
                    G7                    C                     Am
He said women think about themselves when their men-folk aren't around
D7                                     C             D7     G
And friends are hard to find when they discover that you're down
          G7                      C                       Am
He said I tried it all when I was young and in my natural prime
         C            G         Am  D7         G
Now it's old dogs and children  and watermelon wine
 
                      G7             C             Am
He said old dogs care about you even when you make mistakes
D7                              C                 D7       G
God bless little children while they're still too young to hate
            G7                    C                Am
As he moved away I got my pen and copied down that line
       C        G         Am  D7         G
On old dogs and children  and watermelon wine
 
                 G7          C                Am
I had to catch a plane up to Atlanta the next day
D7                              C       D7    G
As I left for my room I saw him picking up my change
                        G7                C            Am
That night I dreamed in peaceful sleep of shady summer times
       C        G         Am  D7         G
Of old dogs and children  and watermelon wine

Listen to the recorded version. It is in F! Or you could play it with a capo on the first fret!
