[G]How old do you think I am he said
[C]I said well I didn’t know
[D7]He said I turned 65  about [C]11 months [G]ago  

I was sitting in Miami pouring [C]blended whisky [Am]down   
When this [C]old grey [G]black gentleman [Am]was cleaning [D7]up the [G]lounge
There wasn't any [G7]one around but this [C]old man and [Am]me   
[D7]The guy who tended bar was watching [C]ironsides[D7] on    [G]tv  
Uninvited [G7]he sat down and [C]opened up his [Am]mind   
On [C]old dogs and [G]children  [Am]and    [D7]watermelon [G]wine

Have you ever had a [G7]drink of watermelon [C]wine he [Am]asked
[D7]He told me all about it though I [C]didn't [D7]answer [G]back
Ain't but [G7]three things in life [C]that's worth a solitary [Am]dime   
That's [C]old dogs and [G]children  [Am]and    [D7]watermelon [G]wine

He said women think [G7]about themselves when [C]their men-folk aren't [Am]around
[D7]And friends are hard to find when they [C]discover that [D7]you're [G]down
He said I [G7]tried it all when I was [C]young and in my natural [Am]prime
Now it's [C]old dogs and [G]children  [Am]and    [D7]watermelon [G]wine

He said old dogs care [G7]about you even [C]when you make [Am]mistakes
[D7]God bless little children while [C]they're still too [D7]young to [G]hate
As he moved [G7]away I got my pen and [C]copied down that [Am]line   
On old [C]dogs and [G]children  [Am]and    [D7]watermelon [G]wine

I had to catch a [G7]plane up to [C]Atlanta the next [Am]day   
[D7]As I left for my room I saw him [C]picking [D7]up my [G]change
That night I dreamed in [G7]peaceful sleep of [C]shady summer [Am]times
Of old [C]dogs and [G]children  [Am]and    [D7]watermelon [G]wine

How old do you think I am he said
I said well I didn’t know
He said I turned 65  about 11 months ago

I was sitting in Miami pouring blended whisky down
When this old grey black gentleman was cleaning up the lounge
There wasn't any one around but this old man and me
The guy who tended bar was watching ironsides on tv
Uninvited he sat down and opened up his mind
On old dogs and children  and watermelon wine

Have you ever had a drink of watermelon 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 watermelon wine

He said women think about themselves when their men-folk 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 watermelon wine

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 watermelon wine

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 peaceful sleep of shady summer times
Of old dogs and children  and watermelon wine
