THE WILD SIDE OF LIFE
(William Warren - Arlie Carter)
« © '51 EMI Unart Catalog »

You wouldn't read my letters 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 God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who'll ever love you
And went back to the wild side of life
The glamour of the gay night life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flow
Where you wait to be anybody's baby
And forget the truest love you'll ever know
I didn't know God made...
