Loretta Lynn – Back Street Affair lyrics

You didn't know I wasn't free
When you fell in love with me
And with all your young heart, you learned to care
It brought you shame and disgrace
The world has tumbled in your face
'Cause they call our love a back street affair

They say you wrecked my home
I'm a husband that's gone wrong
They don't know the sorrow that we had to bear
For the one that I'm tied to
Was the first to prove untrue
Yet they call our love a back street affair

Sweetheart I always knew
When I fell in love with you
The heartaches that we would have to bear
I knew a call gets around
And that all over town
They would call our love a back street affair

They say "I wrecked your life
And brought sorrow to your wife
That I was just a girl who didn't seem to care"
But if they only knew
How she slips around on you
They wouldn't call our love a back street affair

When the mist rolls away
We'll be free to love some day
And find happiness that we were made to share
We'll climb a mountain high
And the world will hear us cry
That our love is not a back street affair
