The original Wild Side of Life, sung by Hank Thompson, had, as Joybell notes, only two verses. You can listen to the recording at Rose "The Record Lady".
For those who've forgotten we had a great thread on this series of songs that ran for a couple of years. The thread is Who/what is THE GREAT SPECKLED BIRD?. Gene added several songs to the same melody that I hadn't heard before.
