Wild Side Of Life2-crd  Hank Thompson

[E]You wouldn't read my letter if I [A]wrote you,
You've [B]asked me not to call you on the [E]phone.
But there's something I'm wanting to [A]tell you,
So I [B]wrote it in the words of this [E]song.
[E]I didn't know god made honky tonk [A]angels,
I [B]might have known you'd never make a [E]wife.
You gave up the only one that ever [A]loved you,
and went [B]back to the wild side of [E]life.
The glamour of the gay night life had [A]lured you,
to the [B]places where the wine and liquor [E]flow.
Where you're waiting to be anybody's [A]baby,
and give [B]up the only love you'll ever [E]know
repeat chorus... last 2 lines twice... (I like too go up on last time
like this)
[E]You gave up the only one that ever [A]loved you,
[A7]and went [B]back to the wild side of [E]life.
I play my A7 as a normal A and hold the high E string at the 3rd fret.
