Sorry, no, but I think the title may be "The wild Side of Life".

"Wild Side of Life" it is indeed. The lyrics along with many other country/bluegrass type material is at www.bluegrasslyrics.com

Happy hunting

SONG OF SONGS
Recorded by Boxcar Willie and Willie Nelson
Written by Vern Stovall, Bill Palmer & Lloene Martin (Boxcar Willie)

Note. To the tune of I'M THINKING TONIGHT OF MY BLUE EYES

[1] How I love that old melody they're [4] playing
I [5] heard it in so many different [1] songs
It made stars out of country music [4] singers
And some-[5] how it just keeps playin' [1] on.

Oh! I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes
Seems to me it's been around since time began
It was there with our soldiers during wartime
And right today, we still hear it, now and then.

Roy Acuff was young country singer
His records were just starting to be heard
That old tune took him right up to stardom
On The Wings Of The Great Speckled Bird.

Hank Thompson is a country music legend
He sang western swing and songs of peace and strife
That same tune gave old Hank the break he needed
On a record called The Wild Side Of Life.

A young girl made the world stop and listen
Kitty Wells was that young singer's name
It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels
That melody rang clear as country rain.

Oh! those notes must come straight out of heaven
In so many different songs they were the same
I know someday they'll be etched in gold forever
And placed in the Country Music Hall Of Fame.

TAG:
And placed in the Couunry Music Hall Of Fame.

Honkey Tonk Angel/The wild Side of Life, is a song loved and recorded by many Traditional singers in the past, so why should this upset anyone who likes Traditional song ?. Learning and singing songs to upset other people has been going on for many years and is about as traditional a reason for singing as any, welcome to the club.

If it's not from the British Isles this singer doesn't like it being sung. Will Micca send his words please.
Thanks again
Wullie
