The Wild Side of Life
Well, you wouldn't read my letters if I wrote you You asked me not to call you on the phone There's something I've been waiting for to tell you So I wrote it in the words of this song You never knew there were honky tonk angels Or you might have known I'd never make a wife You walked out on the only one who ever loved you So I went back to the wild side of life Now the glamor of the good life always lead me To the places where the wild liquor flows I tried to be your one and only angel But I'm not that kind of angel, heaven knows I cried so hard the day you went and left me 'Cause some things you said, they cut me like a knife What you wanted was another kind of angel And you should be back to the wild side of life No, well, I guess I'm just a honky tonk angel I might have known I'd never make a wife Well, you left the only one who ever loved you And I'm back here on the wild side of life I'm only a honky tonk angel I might have known I'd never make a wife You walked out on the only one who ever loved you And you left me here on the wild side of life
