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 they made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who really loved you and went back to the wild side of life
[ piano ]
The glamour of the gay night life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flow
You just sit and wait to be anybody's baby and forget the truest love you'll ever know
I didn't know they made...
