It was there on my grandma’s farm

Where the grapes grew high on the vine

Yeah, that’s where we first met little girl

 

But you ain’t gonna amount to nothing

Cause you ain’t gonna work for nothing

Without you I ain’t good for nothing, honey chile

 

Oh honey chile, you’re sure about to drive me wild

And I love you so, can’t let go now honey chile

 

Oh, sugar chile, I’d walk me a country mile

Just to be with you if that were true of honey chile

 

You don’t act like a lady

Cause you’ve been courting Davie

Its reputation shady oh honey chile

 

Hey you even go out with Charlie

That night across the alley

Oh, I’ve been keeping tally honey chile

 

You’re like grapes upon the vine

That went in Granny’s wine

Cause like that home-made wine so sweet

You’re so driving me out of my mind now

Your friend was such a playboy

Choosing me for a play toy

You’re ruined my pride and joy now honey chile

 

Oh honey chile, you’re about to drive me wild

And I love you so, can’t let go now honey chile

Oh, sugar chile, I’d walk me a country mile

Just to be with you if that were true of honey chile

 

Why don’t you put on your shoes little girl

Then I can kiss you

Oh listen here now

 

One day I’m gonna get stronger

And I won’t need you no longer

This feeling will be gone oh honey chile

 

Hey, I can’t take disgracing

That ain’t the way Grandma raised me

You’re gonna hurt me crazy honey chile

 

Oh, sugar chile, I’d walk me a country mile

Just to be with you if that were true of honey chile

Oh honey chile, you’re about to drive me wild

And I love you so, can’t let go now honey chile
