Watermelon Wine

Tom T. Hall

Intro HOW OLD DO YOU THINK I AM HE SAID
I SAID WELL I DIDN'T KNOW
HE SAID I TURNED SIXTY FIVE ABOUT ELEVEN MONTHS AGO

 GCAm
1.      I WAS SITTING IN MIAMI POURING BLENDED WHISKY DOWN
 CGDG
        WHEN THIS OLD GREY BLACK GENTLEMAN WAS CLEANING  UP THE LOUNGE
 GCAm
        THERE WASN'T ANYONE AROUND BUT THIS OLD MAN AND  ME
 DCDG
        THE GUY WHO TENDED BAR WAS WATCHING IRONSIDES ON  TV
 GCAm
        UNINVITED, HE SAT DOWN AND OPENED UP HIS MIND
 CGDG
        ON OLD DOGS AND CHILDREN, AND WATERMELLON WINE.

2. HAVE YOU EVER HAD A DRINK OF WATERMELLON WINE HE ASKED
HE TOLD ME ALL ABOUT IT THOUGH I DIDN'T ANSWER BACK
AIN'T BUT THREE THINGS IN LIFE THAT'S WORTH A SOLITARY DIME
THAT'S OLD DOGS AND CHILDREN, AND WATERMELLON WINE.

3. HE SAID WOMEN THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES WHEN THEIR MENFOLK AREN'T AROUND
AND FRIENDS ARE HARD TO FIND WHEN THEY DISCOVER THAT YOU'RE DOWN
HE SAID I TRIED IT ALL WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND IN MY NATURAL PRIME
NOW IT'S OLD DOGS AND CHILDREN AND WATERMELLON WINE.

4. HE SAID OLD DOGS CARE ABOUT YOU EVEN WHEN YOU MAKE MISTAKES
GOD BLESS LITTLE CHILDREN WHILE THEY'RE STILL TOO YOUNG TO HATE
AS HE MOVED AWAY I GOT MY PEN AND COPIED DOWN THAT LINE
ON OLD DOGS AND CHILDREN AND WATERMELLON WINE.

5. I HAD TO CATCH A PLANE UP TO ATLANTA THE NEXT DAY
AS I LEFT FOR MY ROOM I SAW HIM PICKING UP MY CHANGE
THAT NIGHT I DREAMED IN PEACEFULL SLEEP OF SHADY SUMMER TIMES
OF OLD DOGS AND CHILDREN AND WATERMELLON WINE.
