Peter, Paul & Mary - Kisses sweeter than wine
Tekst en muziek: Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Fred Hellerman en Ronnie Gilbert
(1966)






When I was a young man and never been kissed
I got to thinking over what I had missed
I got me a girl, I kissed her and then
Oh Lord, I kissed her again



Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine



I asked her to marry and be my sweet wife
And we would be so happy the rest of our lives
I begged and I pleaded like a natural man
And then, Oh Lord, she gave me her hand



Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine



I worked mighty 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
I was, Oh Lord, the father of twins



Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine



Our children, they numbered just about four
They all had sweethearts knockin’ at the door
They all got married and they didn’t hesitate
I was, Oh Lord, the grandmother of eight



Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine



Now that we’re 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 then, Oh Lord, we’d do it again



Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
