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 ever loved you and went back to the wild side of life
[ piano ]
The glamor of the gay night life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flows
Where you wait to be anybody's baby and forget the truest love you'll ever know
I didn't know God made...
