Subject: Lyr Add: WILD SIDE OF LIFE (A. Carter, W. Warren)
(A. Carter, W. 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.

CHORUS: 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.

Yes, it hurts me to know that you don't love me,
Though I know our love's forever gone;
And it killed my soul and pride, dear, inside me,
When I saw you in that stranger's arms so long. CHORUS

I'll just live my life alone with mem'ries of you,
And dream of kisses you traded for my tears;
And no one will ever know how much I love you;
And I pray that you'll be happy through the years. CHORUS
