"WILD SIDE OF LIFE"
by: hank Thompson & kitty wells
songwriter: Arlie A. Carter & William Warren

You wouldn't read my letter if I wrote you
You asked me not to call you on the phone
But there's something I'm wanting to tell you
So I wrote it in the words of this song

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I should have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life

The glamor of the gay night life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flows
There you wait to be anybodys baby
And forget the only love you'll ever know

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I should have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life
