Little Jimmy Dickens — Daddy And The Wine lyrics

A child walked in a candy store in faded overalls
Threw 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
I need a sack of candy like my daddy needs his wine
Daddy and the wine go back three years out of my age
In the old days we were happy dad worked hours long and late
Then one day mommie disappeared one so did daddy's mind
Now it's me and daddy mostly daddy and the wine
[ piano ]
The child picked up the sack and then he wandered on outside
I saw a robe 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 mommie now his daddy's on the wine
Daddy and the wine go back...
