Wild Side Of Life-crd  Hank Williams

You [D] wouldn't read my letter if I [G] wrote you
You [A7] asked me not to call you on the [D] phone
But there's something I'm wanting to [G] tell you
So I [A7] wrote it in the words of this [D] song.

I Didn't know God made honky tonk [G] angels
I [A7] might have known you'd never make a [D] wife
You gave up the only one that ever [G] loved you
And went [A7] back to the wild side of [D] life.

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.

Repeat chorus:

These verses not on Hank Thompson's version.

It hurt me to know that you don't love me,
Though I know our love's forever gone,
And it killed my soul and pride dear inside me,
When I saw you in that stranger's arms so long.

I'll just live my life alone with mem-ries of you,
And dream of kisses you traded for my tears,
And no one will ever know how much I loved you,
And I pray that you'll be happy through the years.

Repeat chorus:
