Testo della canzone Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
(feat. Bonnie Raitt) di JACKSON BROWNE
Album:
(Pete Seeger, Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays, Fred Hellerman and Huddie Ledbetter)
[From the Pete Seeger tribute album Where Have All The Flowers Gone, 1998]

[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:]
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, 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:]
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, 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:]
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, 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:]
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, 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:]
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses…
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses…
