Daddy and the Wine
Porter Wagoner & The Wagonmasters



A child walked in a candy store in faded overalls

Put a nickel on the counter said I think I'll spend it all

I've carried it three months or more you can tell it by the shine

Now I need a sack of candy like my daddy needs his wine

Daddy and the wine goes back three years out of my eight

In the old days we were happy dad worked hours long and late

Then mama disappeared one day and so did daddy's mind

And now it's me and daddy mostly daddy and the wine

The child picked up the sack and then he wandered on outside

We put a roll of green among the jelly beens inside

The clerk was broke and so was I we gave him our last dime

A stranger stole his mommy now his daddy's on the wine

Daddy and the wine goes back three years out of my eight

In the old days we were happy dad worked hours long and late

Then mama disappeared one day and so did daddy's mind

And now it's me and daddy mostly daddy and the wine
