As I sit here tonight with the jukebox playing
The song about the wrong side of life
As I listen to the words that you are singing
It brings memories when I was a trusted wife.

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
To many times married men think they are single
And have caused many a good girl to go wrong.

--- Instrumental ---

It's a shame that all the blame is on us woman
It's not true that only you men feel the same
From the start most every heart that's ever broken
Was because there always was a man to blame.

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
As you said in the words of your song
To many times a married men think they are single
And have caused many a good girl to go wrong.
