Paying for That Back Street Affair  Kitty Wells

Banjo tuned E, Capo 3, Key of F
Ye[F]s, I thought that [Bb]you were t[F]rue
When I fell in love with y[C]ou
For [F]you told me you always[Bb] would play sq[F]uare
Then I learned you had a [C]home
That your [F]wife had n[Bb]ot gone w[F]rong
And our love was just a b[C]ackstreet a[F]ffair
Was too late to say no
When I found you'd fooled me so
For as time passed on I'd learned too much to care
Though I knew I must atone
But my will was not my own
I'm paying for that backstreet affair
You didn't count the cost
You gambled and I lost
Now I must pay with hours of deep despair
You still can live your life
With a true, forgiving wife
But I can't live down our backstreet affair
The love I gave so free
Is left to torture me
Though I know it's hopeless and it isn't fair
But, still I must go on
While the gossips spread are wrong
I'm paying for that backstreet affair
