Watermelon Wine  Tom T. Hall

1.      I [G]WAS SITTING IN MIAMI POURING B[C]LENDED WHISKY D[Am]OWN
        WHEN THIS O[C]LD GREY BLACK GEN[G]TLEMAN WAS CLE[D]ANING  UP THE LO[G]UNGE
        THE[G]RE WASN'T ANYONE AROUND BUT THI[C]S OLD MAN AND  M[Am]E
        THE G[D]UY WHO TENDED BAR WAS WATCHING IR[C]ONSIDES O[D]N  T[G]V
        UN[G]INVITED, HE SAT DOWN AND OP[C]ENED UP HIS M[Am]IND
        ON O[C]LD DOGS AND CH[G]ILDREN, AND WA[D]TERMELLON W[G]INE.

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.
