WILD SIDE OF LIFE Recorded by Hank Thompson Written by Arlie A. Carter and William Warrem
You [D] wouldn't read my letter if I [G] wrote you You [A] asked me not to call you on the [D] phone But there's something I'm wanting to [G] tell you So I [A] wrote it in the words of this [D] song.
CHORUS: I Didn't know God made honky tonk [G] angels I [A] might have known you'd never make a [D] wife You gave up the only one that ever [G] loved you And went [A] 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.
