"The Wild Side Of Life (1966)" lyrics

The Wild Side Of Life (1966)

You gave up the only one
That ever loved you
And went back
To the wild side of life

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 might 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 glamour of the gay night life
Has lured you
To the places
Where the wine and liquor flows
Where you wait
To be anybody's baby
And forget the truest love
You'll ever know

I didn't know
God made honky tonk angels
I might 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

And went back
To the wild side of life
